Prince Edward of England was scheduled to be present at the NATO reception at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday night with part of his family. However, the Earl of Wessex had to be absent late due to illness. His wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, also did not attend the event, although in his case his absence had already been communicated because he had previous work commitments. Those we did see together with the leaders of the NATO member countries were Isabel II, Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall, Princess Ana and the Duchess of Cambridge, who went alone given that Prince William is Official trip in Kuwait and Oman. For their part, the Dukes of Sussex are taking a break from their official commitments these weeks, as they already announced they would.
