18 AUGUST 2003
Five months' pregnant Sophie Wessex was pretty in pink at her husband's side on Sunday as the royal couple visited Edinburgh's Holyrood Park.

Prince Edward, clad in a grey kilt, and his 37-year-old wife were on hand to take the salute at Beating Retreat, performed by the Massed Pipes and Drums of the British Legion.

The Queen's daughter-in-law was radiant on the special occasion, as her husband watched over her with a caring eye. Due to give birth in December, Sophie opted for a brightly-coloured outfit which somewhat camouflaged her growing bump a fucshia knee-length dress with matching overcoat.

Edward and Sophie, who were spotted in the French Riviera over the weekend, now have a break in their official duties until September 2, when the Earl of Wessex is expected to tour Orkney. After ten days of engagements in Britain, the Prince will set off for a solo Luxembourg visit while Sophie remains in the UK.
