Sophie Wessex Shares Rare Personal Tweet for This Amazing Reason

The Countess of Wessex has
posted a rare personal tweet to congratulate the England women’s hockey team.

The England team made history
on Sunday by winning their first gold medal at the Commonwealth Games, which
are currently being held in Birmingham.

Sharing a message from the
royal family’s official Twitter account, Sophie, 57, wrote: “Massive,
massive congratulations to @EnglandHockey – well-deserved Commonwealth Gold
medallists.

“Well done Holly for
leading such a fabulous team. I am so happy and so, so proud of you all. You
are all stars.” The heartwarming message was signed off by,
“Sophie”.

England women’s hockey team
won the Commonwealth Games final with a 2-1 victory over Australia. “I’m a
bit lost for words – it’s the first time in history we’ve ever done this,”
England captain Hollie Pearne-Webb told the BBC.

Massive, massive
congratulations to @EnglandHockey – well-deserved Commonwealth Gold
medallists. Well done Holly for leading such a fabulous team. I am so happy and
so, so proud of you all. You are all stars.

“It’s a new group. I
think over the next two years it’s pretty exciting when we join up with the GB
squad when the Scots and the Welsh come in.

“The crowd’s support has
been absolutely phenomenal. I just feel so lucky that it’s in my career that
we get a home Commonwealth Games.”

Both Sophie and her husband
Prince Edward have been attending various events throughout the tournament. The
Earl of Wessex is the Vice-Patron of the Commonwealth Games Federation.
