Sophie, Countess of Wessex’s body language with Edward shows she is ‘strongest’ in family

Sophie Wessex and Prince Edward attend Southsea beach clean

Sophie, Countess of Wessex and Prince Edward tied the knot on June 19, 1999. Since then they have both been senior working members of the Royal Family.

In their important royal roles the Wessexes will often step out for official engagements.

The royal children mostly stay out of the public eye but will ocassionally join Sophie and Prince Edward during appearances.

Sophie and Edward welcomed their first children, Lady Louise Windsor, 17, in 2003.

In December 2007, their son, James Viscount Severn, 13, was born.

Most recently, Louise and James have stepped out with their parents for a beach clean in Portsmouth and to visit the Wild Place Project at Bristol Zoo.

When they do appear together as a family, body language expert Darren Stanton claimed Sophie seems to take the lead.

He commented that the Countess appears as the most “dominant” and “strong” member of the family.

“In one picture, Sophie’s posture and stride are confident and dominant. It is clear that she is the matriarch,” Darren said.

“I think it’s clear from many of the pictures that Sophie is the strongest member of her family.”

As the son of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Edward has been brought up with an understanding of royal life.

Sophie, however, worked in public relations before she married the Prince.

Despite having less experience as a royal, the expert suggested Sophie is comfortable in the public eye.

When out as a family, Darren claimed Sophie has shown genuine affection to her children despite cameras being present.

He explained she could be more focused on her children than what is going on around her.

“This is a really nice genuine shot of Sophie displaying a genuine smile to her daughter,” the expert added.

“Even though she is aware that the moment has been caught by the camera, she is not phased.

“It is clear she is a very strong personality and does not care about the cameras snapping pictures.

“Sophie is a very strong and confident woman who seems unfazed and the most comfortable with the press being present.”

Lady Louise and James are rarely seen out in public and Sophie has spoken about giving them as normal a life as possible.

Speaking to The Sunday Times in 2020, the Countess of Wessex explained her children go to a “regular” school and, like others their age, would spend their free time with friends, before coronavirus restrictions were introduced.
