Indeed I hope Sophie is comfortable with herself - its the best way to be in you can manage.

However, I do think, in her own mind, she tries to be fashionable - even almost 'fashion leader'.   How else is it possible to explain away the headgear she has accreted over the years - none of which I have ever soon worn twice.   I cannot imagine she has a stylist.   Nobody in their right mind would allow her to set foot outside her door in those hats.   She has a mad milliner, in whom she trusts.

PS:  I don't like the dress she is wearing above.   There is nothing that chimes for me in it.   AND I loathe overblown, flowery fabrics.

 I remember reading a long time ago that QE II asked the  Head editor of Vogue (whom I think she is dead now and I cannot recall her name) to help Diana find her style and give her some fashion must and must-not's. I do not know if it was  Diana's decision or Queen Elisabeth's but we all know the result. Of course Diana had a fabulous sense of fashion & style and I'm not saying Sophie does not have it but she could need the help.

Valmount,

You are correct.  I believe the Vogue Editor was Liz Tilberis who later became the editor of American Harper's Bazaar.  Diana sister Sarah also worked for Britich Vogue at one time.

Sophie tries but is not hitting the mark.  As a mattter of fact, she is not even hitting the target.  She needs help.  Like tasria, I do not care for the dress in the last picture but it is an improvement over many of her fashion ensembles.

Was I the only one who thought Sophie was wearing a flying saucer on her head at the memorial service for Diana?

Sophie looks so much better there and far more relaxed. She looks comfortable and happy during her second pregnancy. What was Edward thinking of with those trousers though?

It's such a shame Edward seems to lack a spark. If I was him I would get hair implants (he can surely afford it), or shave the lot off, hit the gym and pump some iron and also get a spray tan and facial, when you're the youngest son (as I am) it's important to make an effort, even more so when you're in the public eye.

George Clooney is three years older than Edward and he looks a hunk.

Eddieboy ( and I am sure Mrs. Eddy will agree), easy for you to say having the face and form of a Greek god. :-*

I quite agree, dahling! Not everyone is as blessed as dear Eddieboy. The image of Prince Edward "shaving it off, pumping some iron at the gym and sporting a spray tan and facial" has absolutely made my day!! I can't stop laughing!

Eddeiboy UK is frightfully naughty. I must admit it was a sad day when Edward lost his hair.

Just like Charles, William is losing his hair too. 

Harry is all Spencer so I am sure he will have great crop of hair for years to come.  LOL! LOL!

Thank you Kimberly, Mrs Eddy and Dmitri, glad it made you laugh!!! I was actually being serious, he can come to my gym anytime and I will show him how it's done. ;)

Yes, sad re: Williams hair, he should definitely have hair implants in my opinion!
