Sophie Amber Pearce (née Lascelles, born 1 October 1973) is an English photographer, and a relative of the current British Royal Family.

Early life and family[edit]

Lascelles was born in Thorpeness, the daughter of James Lascelles and his first wife, Frederica Ann Duhrssen. Her paternal grandfather is George Lascelles, 7th Earl of Harewood[1] (the eldest paternal first cousin of the Queen). Lascelles is in the line of succession to the British throne because she is a great-great-granddaughter of King George V. She is a first cousin, twice removed, to Queen Elizabeth II through her grandfather, George Lascelles, 7th Earl of Harewood.


From 1997 to 1998, Lascelles studied at the Art and Design Foundation of Coventry University.[2] She attended Middlesex University from 1998 to 2001, where she earned a B.A. in Fine Arts.[2] She then went on to earn her M.F.A. in Fine Arts from the Slade School of Fine Art.[2]


Sophie Lascelles worked with Footsbarn Travelling Theatre in the early 1990s.[3] She also exhibits her photography at studios such as Danielle Arnaud.[4]

Personal life[edit]

Sophie married Timothy Pearce (born 1955) on 11 June 2011. They had had a daughter, Lilianda Rose Pearce, the previous year.[5]
