Sophie Wessex’s likened to Princess Anne for strong work ethic: ‘PR only goes so far’ | Royal | News

The Countess of Wessex will be joined by Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall for Wednesday night’s biennial Rifles Awards Dinner in London. The pair will be stepping in on behalf of the Queen, who has cancelled several planned engagements in recent weeks after being advised to rest by doctors. The dinner will also feature the monarch’s cousin’s Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra.

Sophie has become a central figure in the Firm in the past 18 months, after Prince Harry and Meghan quit the Royal Family, and Prince Andrew was made to step down from his royal duties.

The Countess is a Patron of over 70 charities and organisations, and has received particular praise for her support for the disabled and commitment to the prevention of blindness in developing countries.

Royal commentator Mr Sacerdoti credited Sophie’s growing popularity to her “strong work ethic” by comparing her to the Queen’s daughter Anne.

He told Express.co.uk: “At the end of the day, PR can only go so far in encouraging us to feel a certain way, and it can go quite a way.

“But ultimately people do see what they actually do and how they actually work over longer periods.

“They have a great deal of respect for people like [Sophie] and other members of the family when they see a solid work ethic. 

“Princess Anne’s the same, I think people have a lot of respect for her because she’s a very hard working royal who gets on and does things in a minimally attention seeking way.

“She’s not attention seeking. She’s just getting on with the job.”

He said: “I think that the royal family has shifted for a number of reasons  ‒ not just Meghan and Harry, but also Prince Andrew. 

“I think there’s been a degree of choice in how the family has realigned who does what but there’s also been a degree of inevitability.

“Sometimes events just take over and dictate these things. 

“I think that the Wessexes have stepped up to that admirably.”

Mr Sacerdoti also noted that the age of Edward and Sophie’s children may have allowed them to take up a more central role in the Royal Family.

The couple’s oldest daughter Lady Louise Windsor turned 18 this month while James, Viscount Severn is 13.

Mr Sacerdoti added: “I also think in terms of their family lives, the other part to think about is as the children grow older it enables them to concentrate more on their work.

“They’re stepping in to shoulder some of the burden of the work that the family has generally. 

“They’re people who have always done their bit as well.”
