He is a full-time working royal
Edward had a stint in the marines and also tried his hand at TV production, however he's now a full-time working royal. He's taken over many of the duties of his father, Prince Philip.
He's the Queen's favourite
Rumour has it that Edward and Sophie have a very special relationship with the Queen and Prince Philip.
"[Countess Sophie] is trusted and relied on by the Queen in a way I couldn't say applied to the Duchess of Cambridge or the Duchess of Cornwall," a royal aide told the Daily Mail.
"She is like another daughter to Her Majesty, they are that close."
Similarly, a royal insider told Express: "Edward has moulded into a quiet and efficient figure who does not seek attention or acquire headlines. He and Sophie are liked for being dutiful and uncomplaining."
