Countess of Wessex meets cute little well-wisher

Tuesday June 12, 2012

The Countess of Wessex was delighted to meet a pint sized well-wisher as she began a three-day trip to Gibraltar with her husband Prince Edward.

The cute little baby looked a little overwhelmed with the attention as Sophie had a quick cuddle during a walkabout on Main Street.

Locals had brought out the bunting, in the sun-kissed region, which is home to just 28,000 residents.

On Tuesday the couple paid a visit to the headquarters of the British Forces where they watched an RAF flypast.

In the evening is the annual Queens Birthday parade and garden party at the Convent – the official residence of the Governor of Gibraltar, Sir Adrian Johns.

They are also scheduled to lay a foundation stone for Gibraltar's brand new Diamond Jubilee Monument.
