Prince Edward used to be the third in line to the throne the day he was born. Now, he is way back on the list, but that doesn’t seem to bother him a lot. He is the fourth child of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. Edward was born in 1964. He has two children of his own together with Sophie Rhys-Jones.


Now, the Earl of Wessex has taken a lot of his father’s responsibilities, and he is expected to take his title upon Prince Philip’s death.

The news about Prince Edward abusing public money came out of the blue, and all kinds of anti-monarchy campaigns have already made a lot of fuss of the occasion.

Whether it was a wise decision or not, it’s not up to us to say, but the prince must have had his reasons to spend so much of public money.
