Countess of Wessex issues apology to Frank Skinner
It so happened that the Countess and her husband, Prince Edward, and English comedian Frank Skinner had a massive fallout sometime in the past. As reported by The Times, Skinner confessed in his Absolute Radio that Princess Sophie gave him a “banal compliment” about his performance at the 95th Royal Variety Performance. The event was evidently held at the Royal Albert Hall and the Countess left the two comedians in an ‘awkward shot’.
