British Royal News: Prince Edward Is Now Queen Elizabeth’s Favorite Son Not Andrew?
British Royal News says that it certainly isn’t fun being stuck in the middle, and that is how Prince Edward might or might not have felt for a very long time. Well, up until now. There are new reports that suggest it might be Edward who is Queen Elizabeth’s favorite son now and not Prince Andrew, as it was previously reported. As many fans know, the Duke of York has become the outcast of the royal family for his association with Jeffrey Espstein and also for the fact that he was accused of sexual assault by a minor. Here’s what you need to know.
British Royal News – Prince Edward Is Now Queen Elizabeth’s Favorite Son And Not Prince Andrew?
According to royal biographer Matthew Dennison, Prince Edward was someone who was always in the spotlight behind palace doors, even though he wasn’t seen so much in public. In his biography about the monarch, he wrote, “Prince Edward, seemingly a bit wet and a tad irritating to the rest of us, was always his parents’ favorite. That became apparent in 1987 when Edward, aged 22, opted out of the Royal Marines when he was just a third of the way through his 12-month basic training course. To the surprise of some, Prince Philip (Captain-General of the Royal Marines) did not come down on his son like a ton of bricks. He accepted that the Marines ‘wasn’t right for Edward’ – and to this day Edward is grateful for that.”
Of course, many royal fans have taken to social media to weigh in on the matter. Some comments have included, “I find it sad and very telling that in this family having one moment of good parenting where they were understanding of their son is seen as picking a favorite child. Oh dad was really nice to you that one and only time well then obviously you must be the favorite. I feel like Edward (and Sophie) is the helper child,” along with, “Yeah, it’s always been said that Eddie was Philip’s favorite – although, given the above, it’s hard to see why. In his recent Jubbly tour he came across like a complete bumbling moron, when faced with local dignitaries raising the colonial/slavery/reparations issue. I was genuinely shocked as to how BADLY he handled that, even when starting from a low base.”

British Royal News – Prince Andrew Just Got Demoted
Another fan wrote, “I tend to get these people mixed up with one another, but wasn’t Edward also with mummy at the train depot during a ceremony this summer, when Edward put his hands on a worker to push him away from his mummy? From the photos, Edward appeared to be saying to the worker, “Look, we chose you to be in the picture because you happen to fit the (Very-much-not-racist) edict of being photographed near a Black person, but that doesn’t mean you can stand close to my mummy. So, back off when showing her how the machines work.” He’s such a charmer.”
So far Buckingham Palace has not made any comments about the matter.
