Prince Philip has given his daughter-in-law Sophie, Countess of Wessex a new patronage.

On Wednesday, the royal family announced that the Duke of Edinburgh has already handed over the patronage of Chartered Management Institute (CMI) to Prince Edward’s wife. The announcement was officially made on Twitter.

“The Duke of Edinburgh has officially handed over the Patronage of The Chartered Management Institute to The Countess of Wessex,” The Royal Family wrote.

“This evening The Countess will attend an event to celebrate the outstanding achievements of UK managers from across industry.”

The 97-year-old senior royal has been the patron of the organization from 1992. CMI is the professional body for management and leadership. The institute has led the debate on the future of management and leadership, gender pay gap and employee well-being and engagement.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex is an active supporter of the UK industry. She is also the founder and chair of the Women’s Network Forum, an organization dedicated to promoting women’s success in the workplace through best practice sharing and supporting those making gender equality a reality.

The netizens were very pleased with the announcement. A number of online users commented that it was a “well deserved” appointment. Many believe that Sophie will do good in her new role.

Many are convinced that Sophie, Countess of Wessex is Queen Elizabeth II’s favorite royal. According to royal expert Robert Jobson, when there’s a family gathering, Prince Edward and Sophie often stay longer than the rest.

In December, the Queen was spotted in a car as she made her way to church. Queen Elizabeth II was accompanied by a female royal who sat beside her inside the vehicle, Her Majesty’s company turned out to be Sophie and not Kate Middleton or Meghan Markle.

Among Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip’s children, only Prince Edward has a successful first marriage. Prince Charles, Prince Edward and Princess Anne’s first marriages ended in divorce.

According to body language expert Judi James, the success of the Earl and Countess of Sussex’s marriage is “largely down to Sophie” because she’s a perfect complement to her husband’s trait who takes himself a “little too seriously.”
