Early Life and Work
On January 20, 1965, Sophie Helen Rhys-Jones was born into a middle-class family. She was born in Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford. Her father, Christopher Bournes Rhys-Jones, was born in 1931 and is now retired from his position as sales manager for an importer of industrial tires and rubber goods. Her mother, Mary, was a charity worker and secretary. She was born Mary O’Sullivan and died in 2005.
She was named Helen after her father’s sister, Helen, who died in a horse accident in 1960. Her older brother David was born in 1963. Both her godfather and her father’s stepbrother spent their childhoods in Sarawak, North Borneo, which at the time was a British protectorate administered by the White Rajahs. Her godfather, actor Thane Bettany, is her daughter’s godfather. She is related to the Viscount Molesworth family through her grandmother, Margaret Rhys-Jones, née Molesworth; He was the great-granddaughter of the Rev. John Molesworth, who was the father of Sir Guilford Molesworth and great-grandson of Robert Molesworth, 1st Viscount Molesworth. She is a descendant of King Henry IV of England.
Rhys-Jones grew up in Brenchley, Kent, in a four-bedroom 17th-century farmhouse. She began her education at Dulwich Preparatory School and then transferred to Kent College, Pembury, where she became friends with Sarah Sienesi. After graduating from Kent College, she shared a flat in Fulham with Sarah Sienesi, who later became her lady-in-waiting. She completed her education at the University of London. Rhys-Jones then attended West Kent College, Tonbridge, to train as a secretary.
She started her career in public relations by working for different companies. She spent four years at Capital Radio, where she headed the press and publicity department. She has also worked for public relations firms The Quentin Bell Organization and MacLaurin Communications & Media.
She has also worked and traveled in Australia for a year. There she worked, among other things, as a ski representative in Switzerland. Rhys-Jones founded her own public relations firm, RJH Public Relations, in 1996. For the first five years of the company’s existence, Rhys-Jones and her business partner Murray Harkin were responsible for day-to-day operations.
marriage and children
In June 2013, the Earl and Countess of Wessex attended the Trooping the Color ceremony.
In 1987, Rhys-Jones first met Prince Edward, the youngest son of the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, while dating his boyfriend’s then-girlfriend. Rhys-Jones was working at Capital Radio at the time. She saw him again in 1993 at a photo session for the Prince Edward Summer Challenge organized to raise money for a charity. Shortly thereafter, the two began dating. Edward wrote a letter to editors of various newspapers in December 1993, denying that they had any wedding plans and urging the media to respect their privacy. This came at a time when there was considerable speculation as to whether or not they intended to marry. In December 1998, while vacationing in the Bahamas, Edward popped the question to Sophie. On January 6, 1999, the couple announced that they were engaged. Edward presented her with an 18k white gold engagement ring with a two carat oval diamond surrounded by two heart shaped jewels. One estimate put the ring’s value at around £105,000. It was manufactured by Asprey and Garrard, now known as Garrard & Co. Prior to Sophie and Edward’s engagement, she was granted permission to use the Royal Apartments at Buckingham Palace, as Sophie was said to have been close to the Queen from the start of her relationship with Edward in 2000.
The wedding took place on June 19 this year at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. This was a departure from the marriages of Edward’s older siblings, which took place at either Westminster Abbey or St Paul’s Cathedral and were enormous ceremonial events. Prince Edward received the title Earl of Wessex and the subsidiary title Viscount Severn on the day of his marriage to the Countess of Wessex, making him a hereditary peer. The titles come from the Welsh heritage of the Countess’s family. He is known to be promoted to Duke of Edinburgh once the Crown regains control of that title. They honeymooned at the couple’s favorite destination, Balmoral Castle. After marriage, the Earl and Countess moved to Bagshot Park, which was in the county of Surrey. While Bagshot Park serves as a private residence, Buckingham Palace serves as both a place of business and an official residence in London. As of 2018, the couple’s offices were temporarily relocated to St James’s Palace due to repairs at Buckingham Palace.
After reporting that she was not feeling well in December 2001, the Countess was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital. It was determined that she was suffering from an ectopic pregnancy and the fetus had to be removed to avoid further complications. Two years later, on November 8, 2003, she gave birth to their daughter, Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor, before her due date. This was the result of a sudden abruption of the placenta, which put the lives of both mother and child at risk. The Countess of Wessex had to undergo an emergency caesarean section at Frimley Park Hospital while the Earl of Wessex was rushing back from Mauritius. On 17 December 2007, the Countess returned to Frimley Park Hospital to give birth to their son, James Mountbatten-Windsor, Viscount Severn. This time she had another cesarean during delivery.
