My mother never needed a leash with me . . . but then I wasn't a very active child.

The practicality of a leash-type system, particularly with a royal child on vacation seems very obvious to me.  One cannot have a little Lady running off, getting lost in foreign markets.

Prince,I was not aproblem either.But my brother(Joshua's Uncle Dennis)removed the wooden slats from his playpen (this was back in the late 40's)the pen was in the back yard area.He was only 10 months old and just learning how to walk,he took off to explore the neighbor hood.My mum was doing laundry and when she turned around he was gone.He is now 57 and still a pain in the @$$.

Also something unpleasant could happen,with so much going on .It would be hard for an abductor to make off with a child attached to the mother.I know this is an unpleasant thought, but one that could be relevent.-D

Just as I was thinking, Donielle.  Better to banish those thoughts quickly however.  Surely there are multiple detectives/security officers lurking in the shadows of that picture.

Of course what am I thinking.Of course these people have to be surrounded with security.Thank goodness,she must be somewhat at ease knowing there are watchful eyes in her regard.-D

A nice photo of the wee lass at Balmoral with gammy, gamps and her parents.  Why is the Duke of E not wearing his kilt?

He doesn't want anyone to see his gammy knees . . . : - )

Look at that precious angel in her little plaid dress.They all look so happy together,I'm glad the Queen can find solace after such resent tumultuous events.God Bless this family.-D(Sophie looks radiant,I'm telling you she is the one to watch,there is an understated elegance about this one !) ;D

It is a very good pic of Sophie.  One of the best I've seen.

Coming into her own as a woman.The birth of a child is certainly momentous.She seems to have that natural poise that some are simply born with,I think as I have stated that she will only get better as time goes on.How wonderful to have such a prospect for the future.

It would be nice to see the Countess become Queen; too bad that won't likely happen.

That is such a lovely picture, I wonder when it was taken and I wonder if little Louise has had that squint sorted out yet, bless her cotton socks.
