I had the great pleasure to photograph Sophie Wessex yesterday when she was visiting Meningitis Now headquarters in Stroud, Gloucestershire. Her husband Prince Edward was there too, but Sophie was the star of the show. She has been patron of the charity for 10 years and I could tell she was deeply moved by the plight of some of the parents she met whilst touring the building. I'm a big fan of the Royal family and over the years I've been lucky enough to photograph most of them. Sophie reminded me a lot of Princess Diana who I photographed a lot in the late 80's and early 90's.
