According to HELLO!, Sophie was out there to speak with farmer Tim and his family about the challenges local farmers are facing as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. But they also talked about opportunities for farmers and other food producers because of the public's growing interest in supporting and buying locally and sustainably.
Wearing a casual outfit of jeans with a navy sweater and knee-high boots, Sophie also stopped by the farms mobile kitchen to get a hot beverage. The catering van "Fillet & Bean" uses locally sourced produce and was used to support people in the nearby village during lockdown.
In late August, Sophie Wessex actually gave a rare interview to the magazine Good Housekeeping, in which she opened up about her children and raising them, and it turns out while many pre-teens and teenagers are on social media, Louise and James are not.
She said: "At the moment, my children aren’t into social media, however, it is here to stay, so it’s important for them to understand it and for us to equip them with the tools to navigate it successfully. Again, I think openness is one way families can support their teenagers."
The Countess of Wessex has been married to Prince Edward, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip's youngest son, ever since 1999. Their two beautiful children Lady Louise Windsor (16) and James, Viscount Severn (12) were born in 2003 and 2007, respectively.
