Sophie Wessex’s heartwarming gesture for vulnerable children during royal tour

Sophie Wessex’s heartwarming gesture for vulnerable children during royal tour

The royal was seen talking to staff members as she was introduced to the team at the Childline and NSPCC headquarters in London for her latest tour. The childline is a confidential line for under-19s to request assistance and support.

The Countess has been the leading patron of the NSPCC since she succeeded the Queen in 2016.

She was seen working from a computer in her home before praising volunteer for their efforts during the pandemic.

In the pictures, Sophie looks concentrated while talking to the personnel about their important role and how they have dealt with requests during the pandemic.

The Countess wore a camouflage print dress paired with a cross-body black bag. She had her hair up with a clip.

Since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, Childline has had to make changes to its normal 24-hours, with advisers only allowed to take calls or reply to online correspondence between 9am and midnight.

In March, Sophie pointed out some important resources to provide help and offer information to those who are isolating with their children at home during the pandemic crisis.

She urged members of the public to participate in the @Nspcc_childline #childlinechallenge, for parents and children to join a new project every day to help them stay active.

Sophie has taken the lead in the royal family’s to help during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Countess seemed calm as she spoke to other volunteers and members of staff.

The news comes days after she spoke out about getting used to life as a member of the royal family, mentioning her “frustration” and conceding it took some time for her to “find her feet”.

She told The Times she had to decrease her idea of how she could help and “take a really big step back”.

“I couldn’t turn up at a charity and go, right, I think you should be doing this, because that’s what I was used to doing in my working life,” she said.

Royal sources have said that the Countess and Prince Edward would ”step up” and assist on more public engagements while the Queen self-isolates during lockdown.
