Sophie, Countess of Wessex has been photographed in public with Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton. It seems that Prince Edward’s wife gets along well with the two Duchesses.

Last year, Sophie was photographed with the Duchess of Sussex while on board a horse-drawn carriage on their way to the Royal Ascot. The two women weren’t photographed chatting with each other, but they both had a smile on their face.

While at the event, body language expert Judi James talked about the two female royals. She said that Sophie seemed as though she was looking out for the “Suits” alum.

“Meghan looks super poised in these photos, sitting upright with her mouth opened in an upturned smile that is aimed at crowds. Sophie’s eyes are also on the crowds, although her head-tilt and a suppressed smile that tilts the corners of her mouth down suggest she is communicating quietly with Meghan here,” James told Express.

According to the publication, it is also possible that Markle and Prince Harry are taking after Sophie and Prince Edward because they have raised both of their children away from the spotlight. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been finding ways to keep their son Archie’s life private.

Meanwhile, Sophie and Middleton also have an amicable relationship with each other. The two female royals have been members of the British clan for years that’s why they have spent more time with each other.

Whenever they are out in public, Middleton and Sophie are photographed chatting and smiling from ear to ear. They were also seen chatting at Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding last year. The Royals’ body language suggests fond familial relations.

But if there’s one senior member of the royal family that is really close with Sophie, it is Queen Elizabeth II. James previously said that Her Majesty trusts and relies on Sophie more than she does with Middleton and the Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.
