Also The Royal Family shared the news, that The Countess of Wessex, as Grand President of St. John Ambulance has been awarded a Long Service Medal at the National Presidents’ Conference. HRH joined St. John Ambulance as Grand President in 2004 and heads up the work of the St John’s County Presidents.

The Service Medal of the Order of St John is an award given to those that have provided a requisite number or years service to the Order of St John. The award was announced in the St John Ambulance Brigade General Regulations for 1895 and minted in 1899, though the first honorees had been selected the previous year.

    Busy week for Sophie ! And once again, she looks quite lovely.

    Anna – Wonder if you can shed any light. Read an article, re state visit to the UK by President Obama. There was a image of Sophie in attendance, wearing what looked like a cream and pink gown. I wonder if in your archives you have a better image of the gown ?

    Just seen a full length photo on your Small Obsessions page. Hope we get to see this gown have another outing, it really is quite lovely regal on Sophie ! And if she was to wear it to another state dinner, an option would be to exchange the aquamarine stone from the Wessex tiara, with a pink rose jewel,(if none available from the royal vaults, then a costume jewel) we can but dream :-). Thank you Anna.
