If occupying the sixth place in the British Royal House in number of official commitments in 2018 is an indication of the importance they have within the Windsor, we must consider that Edward of England and his wife, Sophie, They are two of the strongest values ​​of a monarchy that relives some convulsed moments after a long honeymoon season with the media.

In a few months in which Meghan Markle became the main target of the tabloids and a fledgling scandal around the Dukes of Cambridge, which in the UK has been turned off because the Prince Guillermo, through his lawyers, has announced demands to those who insist on the rumor that he would have been unfaithful to his wife, the figure of the Counts of Wessex remains untouched, because they have become the epitome of harmony.

As we say, they are two of the most hard-working members of a Royal Family more than accustomed to dealing with scandal. Eduardo fulfilled 463 commitments in 2018, more than the sum of those committed by Guillermo and Harry, and Sophie 238, but, nevertheless, they do not receive as much publicity as those of other members of the Windsor who are ahead of Eduardo in the line of succession. For this reason, some publications suggest that they should have a more active presence in social networks so that their achievements receive the impact they deserve.

Still, lately it seems the Anglo-Saxon media are paying more attention to Sophie, who was put as a reference to try an approach between Meghan Markle and the queen Isabel II, in the moment in which the popularity of the one that was protagonist of the series 'Suits' began to waver.
