Sophie, Countess of Wessex, 56, and Prince Edward, 57, are dedicated working royals and have shone as they have taken on a more prominent place in the Firm since Megxit. While it has long been understood that Edward would one day inherit Prince Philip’s Duke of Edinburgh title, royal insiders have recently claimed it may not happen.

Earlier this month, two sources told the Sunday Times Prince Charles, 72, who currently holds the Duke of Edinburgh title, had no intention of handing it on to Edward when he becomes king.

One source said: “The prince is the Duke of Edinburgh as it stands, and it is up to him what happens to the title. It will not go to Edward.”

Another added: “Edinburgh won’t go to them [the Wessexes] as far as the prince is concerned.”

The claims are understood to have come as a shock to Edward and Sophie who Prince Philip asked to take on the title in person shortly before their wedding in 1999.

Judi claimed Edward may have been “crushed” by the thought he might not inherit his father’s title.

She added: “We have no idea how crushing the latest news of his father’s title might have been, but Edward’s body language here shows signs of a desire to look more confident and dominant or authoritative than usual.”

Edward seemed to take the lead during the engagement when it’s usually his wife Sophie who takes charge, Judi claimed.

She added: “We’ve become used to seeing Sophie in a leadership role on royal visits, while Edward has often appeared quieter beside here.”

Judi said: “Here, though he stands in a dominant and assertive ‘splay’ pose with his hands on his hips and his legs splayed, while his cocked head signals intense and very involved listening.”

The Countess appears more “passive” as she lets her husband take the spotlight, Judi explained.

She added: “Sophie appears to have adopted a more passive tone here, with her barrier gestures making her look less open and less assertive than usual.

“She wears her sunglasses throughout, including inside the building and for the official photo, which is an unusual gesture for a royal.

“She also clutches her bag and scarf with both hands in front of her torso in another barrier gesture that is rare for this usually more open and accessible royal.”
