The Countess, who is married to Her Majesty’s son Prince Edward, had a unique bond with her mother-in-law.

They shared a dedicated work ethic as well as many of the same interests.

And as a gift from her late “mum,” Sophie will reportedly be handed a number of patronages to continue her legacy.


It comes as…


A royal source told the Mirror: “The Queen and Countess had a fantastically warm and happy relationship.

“Her Majesty admired Sophie’s quiet sense of duty, her strong work ethic and the way she balanced her public and family life. They also shared many of the same interests.

“The Queen’s decision to pass on this patronage reflects the closeness of their bond.

“Sophie’s growing popularity with the public is also evident and she will assume a greater public profile in a redesigned monarchy of King Charles.”

It is understood that Sophie is likely to take over the patronage that the Queen has held for the Women’s Institute and the Dogs Trust.

Already a patron of over 70 charities and organizations – such as Childline and Blind Veterans UK – the mum is known for her dedication and empathy.

Both features were on display when she and Edward visited Manchester this week to see the floral tributes on display.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex met well-wishers in St Anne’s Square, where at one point Sophie collapsed from emotion.

She was seen comforting a young man, Josh, who was standing with his mother Sue.

After the exchange, Sue told Sky News: “The first time she came down, she handed Josh the bouquet and then she came back before getting in the car and giving Josh another hug. And she put the flowers over there.”

She added: “It was quite emotional to be honest. I try to hold it back. I just thought it would be for the best. I didn’t expect Sophie to come over.”

Another woman said Sophie stopped to thank her for taking the time to say goodbye to Her Majesty today.

And a third said the Countess told her it was the support of mourners who came out to show their support that helped the royal family get through the difficult time.

Sophie will join Meghan Markle in a car behind the royal procession at the Queen’s funeral on Monday.
