Prince Edward On Royal Family Drama
The youngest child of Queen Elizabeth, Prince Edward, has had the least amount of controversy compared to his siblings. He has been criticized for quitting his military training only a few months into his training and yet retaining more military titles than Prince Harry who served in Afghanistan. His wife Sophie Wessex merely one brush with scandal when she was caught speaking poorly of the Royal family to an undercover reporter.
In comparison to the other representatives of the Queen's kin, Edward seems to have the cleanest slate and may be the best to put front and center at the moment. So Prince Edward spoke to CNN about the current state of his family.
When asked by Max Foster about the family tension the Earl explained it is "very sad." He explained, "Listen, weirdly we've all been there before, we've all had excessive intrusion and attention in our lives. And we've all dealt with it in slightly different ways, and listen, we wish them the very best of luck. It's a really hard decision."
He spoke candidly described how the Royals endure the same issues the public does, "It's difficult for everyone but that's families for you."

I think that it was a fantastic partnership, but over the last couple of weeks, life has got considerably busier. things are beginning to open up more, there are more activities so weirdly that short of fills any particular void."
Edward acknowledged that while Her Majesty has put up a brave front, she has still suffered a great loss. "I think there are going to be other times further along the year where I think that it will become a bit more poignant and a bit harder. But at the moment, thank you very much indeed for asking, I think that everybody's in pretty good shape really, and just working rather too hard."
