Prince Harry and Meghan Markle / Countess Sophie
After Prince Harry, 35, and his wife Meghan Markle, 38, officially resigned from their royal offices and moved to live from Britain first in Canada, then in the United States, members of the British royal family commented on this subject with extreme restraint. The other day, the 55-year-old wife of Queen Elizabeth II’s youngest son, Prince Edward, gave an interview to the British newspaper The Sunday Times. In this conversation, the Countess of Wessex, Sophie, told her that she was thinking of the resettlement and the new life of the Dukes of Sussex, and also drew parallels between Megan and Harry’s relationship and her marriage.

Countess Sophie admitted that since Megan came to their family, she has tried to support her in every way, as she herself was in a similar situation many years ago. Before the wedding, Prince Andrew and Sophie, who at the time worked in public relations, met for about five years. In an interview, Countess Sophie said that she had failed to immediately gain authority and respect from the rest of the British royal family and the public.

It took me a while to get up. Remember, I was about five years old to get used to the new world during our meeting. For six months after our engagement, I spent at Buckingham Palace. No one was sure how it would all happen
– said Sophie.
For this reason, Prince Edward’s wife has from the start provided support to Meghan Markle and given her the necessary advice. According to Sophie, it is customary in their families to help each new person. Even after the dukes moved into Frogmore Cottage, Megan and Sophie stayed close because the Countess and Prince Edward’s house was only ten miles from them.
In an interview with reporters from the publication, Countess Sophie recounted how she reacted to Megan and Harry’s refusal of royal office and their move to another country.
I just hope they will be happy
Said the Countess Sophie dryly.
The journalists also asked Prince Edward’s wife if they had more royal responsibilities after the resignations of Megan and Harry. Sophie admitted that she hadn’t noticed any changes and noted that she and her husband, as before, were doing their own thing.
