To «replace» Harry and Meghan within the royal family, it will be above all the 55 enne wife of the only son of Elizabeth II who has never divorced. The sovereign has a soft spot for her, and Sophie - just returned from Sierra Leone - can't wait to attend more engagements

The Queen made her choice. His “favorite”, Sophie of Wessex, wife of the only son of the sovereign who never divorced, would have been chosen by Buckingham Palace to “lighten the weight” of Megxit. The 55 enne, mother of two boys and wife of Prince Edward since 1999, so will take on more royal responsibilities and represent the queen in many more public commitments , after Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 38, have decided to withdraw from the royal family.

A real source revealed to the Daily Mail that the countess today is “very popular”, among her subjects and within the Windsor. Sophie has always had a very close relationship with her mother-in-law and already represents the Crown both at home and abroad. Elizabeth II would consider her “as a daughter”, as well as having great esteem her. On Sophie, she would have told the insiders, you can always count: she is the only one who knows how to make a marriage work. Carlo, Anna and Andrea, on the other hand, blew at least one each.

AND the new tasks are already seen. Last week, Sophie and Prince Edward attended with William, 37, and Kate Middleton, 38, at a summit reception at Buckingham Palace. The countess 55 enne, moreover, had just returned from a two-day trip to Sierra Leone. A tour that successfully completed on its own. According to the real reporter Phil Dampier Sophie has, in fact, the potential “to be a real superstar”.

After all, after the earthquake the royal family needs a reorganization. Because there was not only the “spill” of Meghan and Harry, now in Canada with Archie, but also the bad scandal that swept away Andrew of York forcing him to resign. The trusty Sophie is ready to go (even) more on the field.
