    Sophie Wessex’s role in the royal family has ramped up in recent months, with the Countess being one of the stable figures to have been given more responsibility following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s resignation.

    The 55-year-old has been making news for all the right reasons this week as she sent an ‘inspiring’ letter to first responders during the coronavirus outbreak and sent a powerful message to women everywhere.

    Despite being isolated to her home, Sophie has definitely had her hands full with work, following in Kate Middleton’s footsteps and holding a lot of her royal engagements via video call.

    The royal family revealed recently that Sophie has been been taking part in Zoom calls, revealing her Zoom name – iPad CW3. The ‘CW’ is thought to stand for ‘Countess of Wessex’.
