Sophie Wessex confesses struggles with Memory Loss

Sophie Wessex opened up about her experience with menopause in a call earlier this year. Prince Edward's wife was joined by Wellbeing of Women’s Chair, Professor Dame Lesley Regan, to mark her new royal patronage of the organisation, as the pair discussed menstruation and pregnancy, as well as menopause. 

The Countess of Wessex detailed how, at 56, the menopause had affected her, and particularly her memory.

“You suddenly can’t remember what on earth it was you were talking about,” she quipped. “Try being on an engagement when that happens. Your words just go. And you’re standing there going, ‘Hang on, I thought I was a reasonably intelligent person. What has just happened to me?”

She added: “It’s like someone has just gone and taken your brain out for however long before they pop it back in again, and you try and pick up the pieces and carry on.
