Wasn't P. Edward at one time offered the throne of Lithuania? I heard he turned it down because he did not want to leave the U.K.

He was asked in 1994 to take the throne of Estonia, but declined - and the country has remained a republic since.

Really? I would have taken the throne, but I would prefer Lithuania cuz some of my ancestors were from there.

At the time there was a lot of speculation that Lithuania, Latvina and Estonia would join up, perhaps even with Belrussia.
If Edward had accepted he could have a Russian Tsardom by now.

Edward and Prince Haakon must have been terribly bored at this function :) Nice to see royals from different countries interacting.

I love the recent picture of the Countess. She looks so happy and her smile is so illuminating. A truly beautiful royal!

Polfoto photos of Edward's visit to the US. While there he gave a speech at the Gertrude C. Ford Center in University, Miss., on the restoration of the Windsor Castle. Prince Edward visits the U.S. once a year to give updates on the restoration of the 900-year-old Windsor Castle, which was heavily damaged by fire in 1992.

"French Polish"

From HELLO! 15.2.05 ...

"EDWARD AND SOPHIE ACQUIRE FENCH POLISH

Edward and Sophie...have been attending two-hour classes at London's prestigious Instituit Francais, both together and separately, since last year. Prince Edward was recently spotted leaving the Instituit with his wife, clutching a French grammar book and dictionary.

According to reports, the Royal couple enjoy visiting friends in France and thought that swotting up on the language would help them both at work an on holiday.

'They are really enjoying it and can now have a fairly good conversation' said a source."

Edward takes to Urgyury and Chile

Hi,

Edward leaves for Urugury tomorrow. He will be at the swearing of President Tabare Vazquez, along with dignataries like Fidel Castro and Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia of Spain.

Is it my imagination or is Buckingham Palace giving Edward and Sophie a lot more 'high profile' events since the beginning of the year?

I see that Sophie and Edward will be going to Canada in June - a month after the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh go there. Edward will also visit Chile after Urugury.

The Queen and Prince Philip are getting older and I'm sure that frequent out of country trips must be more tiring for them than even five years ago.

Charles has his own busy agenda and is increasingly getting caught up in his own escapades and public battles, whether they involve him, his relationship with Camilla or with his sons, especially Harry.

Anne has always performed many royal duties, though she seems to attend a limited number of engagements out of Britain and Scotland.

Andrew has a semi-private job doesn't he? Which would take him out performing royal duties.

I think Edward and Sophie are the next best in line to take on duties that the Queen and Prince Philip cannot perform, whether because of scheduling conflicts or because they don't want to travel. And since they each gave up their full time jobs what else is there for them to do?
