lots of pics - but no article, at least in the British press
If you were Edward and Sophie's - how would you improve their image ? Okay at least at this points - how would you improve Edward's image? More engagements with Sophie?

I don’t think Edward’s image needs improving. The press just finds him boring. In many ways, that’s a good thing.

So true and I imagine he’s not boring to the people who matter, the people he’s visiting.

People really need to remember, they’re not Henry and Meghan, nor should they be.

Back in the day, Prince Edward was seen as a bit of a figure of fun – he dropped out of the Marines before even completing his training, then there was the infamous It’s A Royal Knockout, and then he and Sophie were together for ages before he finally proposed. But, in the end, he was the one who got it right. He and Sophie are still married after over 20 years. He never says or does anything controversial, and he doesn’t have dodgy friends. I think he’s fine as he is. No-one expects him to be dashing and glamorous: he never was, even in his younger days. There's a lot to be said for being boring!

There's a lot to be said for boring. A lack of drama is the way to go as long as the job gets done!

Edward's image is fine, in fact he is probably gone up in estimation by default because of his relatives predicaments (divorces, allegations, documentaries, fall outs etc) that have are bringing strain on the Royal Family.
