Edward appears to be a contented, happy man, secure in the love of his wife and family. IMO he's done well.

I always thought Edward was spoiled, and something of a cipher. IMO, the drive and intelligence in that duo belongs to Sophie.

He does seem reasonably content with his lot, but I wonder how deep it goes. I remember a comment by Charles that seemed to dismiss Edward as someone who's a bit thick and wishy-washy. Maybe I am reading too much into it, but Edward is a question-mark.

IMHO over the years the Wessex family has come to represent a real success story for the BRF. Sophie and Edward have made mistakes, but I really believe that they are now viewed by QEII and the DoE as dependable and stable contributors.

I was only thinking the other day that Edward seemed to be 'a good son'. Not a lot of controversy, a few unkind rumours early on, but from where I sit he's rather low key, a good father and husband and a dependable royal.

Edward has caused some issues and headlines over the years but nothing like his brothers. He settled well with Sophie I think they make a good team they made some mistakes but have always seemed happy with each other and he is the only one still married and without a whiff of an unhappy marriage. He took some time to work out what he wanted to do he is take over from the DOE for awards scheme he and Sophie do a lot of engagements and both are liked. They seem to spend a bit more time with the Queen which is lovely. Their children both seem happy and well adjusted and it will be interesting to see how they grow up I think they will be more like Zara and Peter and make their own way in life. I think all the children were spoiled Andrew has always been said to be the Queens favourite and Ann Prince Phillips. I don't think Charles is as close to his younger brothers stories for years he doesn't approve of Andrew I haven't heard him say anything negative about Edward.
