The young royal gets her inspiration from her mother who has been touted as a “royal key worker” during the coronavirus pandemic. While the Countess of Wessex was “overshadowed by senior royals”, she is “a rising star and now much bigger than her husband Prince Edward,” according to Phil Dampier, author of Royally Suited Harry and Meghan in Their Own Words.
The royal expert said Sophie’s “highly intelligent” teenage daughter, Lady Louise is set to follow in her mother’s footsteps when it comes to working as a royal.
He said: “Their daughter Lady Louise could turn out to be a star in her own right and will get a lot of inspiration from her mum.”
Sophie has set an example by volunteering throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty, described the Countess as a “royal key worker” and added she “is making a difference in a very understated, very ‘Sophie’ way”.
Speaking to PEOPLE, Peregrine Armstrong-Jones, of Bentley’s Entertainment, echoed similar claims about the Countess’ work ethics.
He said: “These are private visits done in her own private time.
“When she leaves our kitchens, she generally then goes on to do more projects in different hospitals.”
A friend told the outlet how Sophie’s upbringing may have had something to do with her drive to work and make a change.
“Now that her children are a bit older I think there could be a great role for her to play. She is 55 today and she is very fit and full of energy.
“I think she wants to do more and would happily step up to the plate and take over more duties if asked.”
Meanwhile, Meghan and Harry are due to return to the UK to hold talks with senior royals about their move to the United States.
Royal expert Russell Myers has claimed Prince Harry will seek a “better deal”.
