Sophie Wessex is ‘exactly what the royal family needs’ because she ‘just gets on with it’ and doesn’t take on projects that are ‘very glamorous’, according to a royal expert.
Ingrid Seward has revealed how the Countess, 55, approaches her role in The Firm in an ‘unfussy way’ and said she ‘gets on with things regardless of the attention.’
The Countess, who is currently isolating at her home in Bagshot Park, Surrey, with husband Prince Edward, 56, and their children Lady Louise Windsor, 16, and James, Viscount Severn, 12, has been seen volunteering at foodbanks and making lunches for NHS staff in recent weeks.
Seward told CBC News: ‘Sophie does everything very quietly, partly because the media don’t follow her obsessively as they do with William and Catherine and partly because the things she does aren’t necessarily very glamorous.’

Seward’s comments come days after it emerged the Countess has been volunteering in her community amid the coronavirus pandemic (pictured, working at a foodbank last week)
Seward went on to say it was exactly what the Royal Family needs and likened her to Princess Anne, who is often considered the hardest-working royal.
The royal expert said Sophie would likely follow in her footsteps, thanks to her ‘unfussy’ attitude.
She went on to explain how Sophie was ‘someone who just gets on with things regardless of the attention they receive’, which was exactly what was needed in The Firm.
Meanwhile fellow expert Katie Nicholl went on to reveal how Sophie ‘goes about her duty diligently and quietly’, explaining that it was part of the reason the Countess is so close to the Queen.

Katie said that their companionship came ‘gradually’ and without pushiness on Sophie’s part, with the two women both enjoying riding, military history and ‘a wicked sense of humour.’
Yesterday, the royal followed in the footsteps of her husband Prince Edward, Prince Charles, Prince William and the Duchess of Cornwall, to open a Nightingale field hospital.
In her recorded message, Sophie paid tribute to the North East city and said it was ‘close to her heart’, saying: ‘This hospital demonstrates that when we come together we can achieve great things.’

The Countess has also been snapping volunteering on a number of occasions over the past month.
Last week, Sophie spent time volunteering at a foodbank to prepare boxes of food for vulnerable people affected by the coronavirus outbreak.
The mother-of-two appeared in high spirits as she chatted with staff and other volunteers and donned protective gloves to sort food products into boxes at The Lighthouse Foodbank in Woking, Surrey.

Days earlier, the Mail revealed how the countess has been working secretly as a volunteer making lunches for NHS staff once a week alongside professional chefs organised by the millionaire British financier Ian Wace.
His team have been producing a staggering 59,000 free meals a week, working 24-hours a day, for frontline staff in hospitals across Greater London including Barts, King’s, Epsom and St Helier.
According to organisers, the countess, has been coming in one day a week, quietly and without fanfare, preparing, cooking and cleaning up.
