Sophie and Edward Wessex long for ‘happy days’ with Queen on Christmas card

The Earl and Countess of Wessex have shared their 2022 Christmas card, which has a beautiful tribute to the late Queen.

Featuring an image of the royal couple with Her Majesty on a Scottish trip last summer, the image was taken just a few months before Queen Elizabeth II passed.

The late monarch looks in high spirits as she is joined by her youngest son and his wife, as she partakes in the annual Ceremony of the Keys at Holyrood Palace.

Seen in one of her classic pastel blue outfits with a matching hat, the Queen inspects the troops in the photograph during what would be her last visit to Edinburgh.

Another image ,featured on the inside of The Wessex’s greeting card, shows a younger Queen enjoying a private holiday in Scotland. Joining her is her beloved husband Prince Philip, as the pair take in the beautiful highland countryside.

Besides this image reads the touching caption: “In memory of happy days”.

The couple are not the only ones paying tribute to Her Majesty this Christmas.

After her passing in early September, the Royal family have paid tribute to Queen in many ways, including most recently with a tree being planted at Westminster Abbey by the Princess of Wales.

The wild cherry sapling was planted as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy project, which will see a million trees planted across the UK and the Commonwealth to mark the 70-year reign of the late Queen.

It marked the start of the project, which began on Tuesday morning, as well as Kate Middleton’s last royal appointment before she takes a break over the Christmas period.

King Charles has also concluded his royal duties for 2022 on Tuesday, having recorded his first Christmas message, which will air on Christmas Day.

It is expected that The King’s speech will be dedicated to his mother, with the emotional speech reflecting on her 70 year reign.

The King has also kept the family tradition of holding a pre-Christmas lunch at Windsor Castle, with the Wessex being one of many senior royals attending the event on Tuesday.

It is the first time the event has taken place since the COVID-19 pandemic began, with the Cambridges in attendance along with Princess Anne and her husband, Timothy Laurence.

Fresh from his stint on I’m A Celeb, Mike Tindall also joined the luncheon, which features a Sandringham-bred roast Turkey and extra trimming.

The ex-England captain, who is married to King Charles’s niece Zara Tindall, recently opened up about the annual meal.

He explained on his podcast, The Good, The Bad and The Rugby, that there are seven tables set up, with the royal children given their table during the festivities.

Mike told listeners: "The kiddies have their own little one in a different room."
