What a bonny little girl - do you not think that she has the look of the Windsor children?

Yep, sure does.

I hope she doesn't inherit her mother's taste in shoes......

All this concern is sweet. However, the Wessex's are doing their duty in Portugal.



Agreed :)

Don't worry I am sure Sophie borrowed those from the Duchess of Cornwall.

Absolutely.

You know that picture in the Field book with QEII and Princess Anne as toddlers?  It's the spitting image...

Does anyone know how recent the picture of Sophie and Louise is? Judging by the look of Sophie's tummy, those pregnancy rumors could be true...

Yes, I thought that, too, Eddy Girl...!

Great minds think alike... ;)

Now that the rumour mill is going, the Palace will surely comment soon.

Found this elsewhere on the web.  Sophie and Louise in Tuscany.  How sweet.

Thank you Emmie,You are the best at finding these treasures and posting for our pleasure.This is a gem.So natural and at ease.The baby looks radiant.Sophie so relaxed and casual here,she strikes me as a natural sort,motherhood agrees with her certainly.God bless her and her family.Who cares about the sandals those legs and form are spectacular.This one may hold up well to the scrutiny of Royal life.She seems very much, her own person.My prayers for wee Louise.

I think the photo is fairly recent (within the last few weeks or so).

That's such a shame about Lady Louise's condition. :( I really hope it all goes well for the whole family.

I had wondered whether or not the Countess would get a military appointment; does Prince Edward have any?


Prince Edward is Royal Honourary Colonel of The Royal Wessex Yeomanry, Colonel-in-Chief of the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment, and Colonel-in-Chief of the Saskatchewan Dragoons.

On topic with the picture, I'm not a big fan of baby leashes... though hey may help to keep your child by your side, I think they make children look like your slaves.  :-/

They can be practical at times, Matjlav.  Better this than a young, active child getting lost in a crowd...some children of this age cannot even be put on the ground without running off... :)

My mother used a leash on me and it didn't have any lasting effect. I was the sort of child who ran across busy highways and dove into shopping store fountains. I think the leash/rein/leading string is necessary for safety and the parent's peace of mind!

That's the first picture I've seen of little Louise. She definitely has the look of the Windsors. It would be interesting to compare a close-up picture of her with her father, her grandmother Elizabeth and with Queen Mary as young children. I see a close facial resemblance down through the generations. But they say little children resemble their fathers most during the first year or two and can change a lot later.

Take a look at these:

A leash was essential for my 3year old son.He was also the kind of active,impetuous child that would run out into streets,parking lots,ponds,oceans etc.Heedless to any direction or guidance,impervious to discipline of any description.He would simply laugh and run faster,turn the tables and try to exact discipline on me,or simply start screaming,wailing and crawling around on all fours like a dog.With the leash on ,the effect was complete.Some stared in horror and disgust,I could have cared less,give THEM an afternoon with this kid.He was so heavy and muscle bound(9 lbs at birth)any type of physical restraint was like wrestling an alligator.At 2 ,diaper changes were a workout,my husband would have to hold the legs and arms,while I steered clear of the rock hard headbutts and cleaned and diapered,unreal.Now,Joshua is age 5 .I am able to reason and rationalize with the youngster.However once again,they make these leashes for a purpose,they are not for docile,easy going,obedient children.They are for the flip side,only people with this personality type in the family or of accquaintance with this type will truly appreciate the desire to actually enjoy an outing with out,frantic searches for your lost child,screaming to STOP as the child darts out in front of an oncoming car,trying to hold a hand as the child refuses to reciprocate and a simple held hand must resort to a death grip as the child hits the ground and refuses to walk normally(this only happens crossing a busy street or parking lot)My son remembers alot of his shenanigans and just this morning was reminiscing about getting lost at a gas station.Honestly I can't even count the times ,strangers have walked up to me,my son HOLDING THEIR HAND!Looking at me with disapproval,saying"IS THIS YOUR SON?" ;D
