Duchess of Edinburgh: Celebs Rumors


Duchess Sophie 'could have been Queen' after Prince Edward was sent odd request

The Order of Succession is something that cannot be altered by personal preference. While the British royals understand this, it would seem that one foreign country had not grasped this as they made a rather strange offer to the Duke of Edinburgh in 1994. Huge socio-political change in the country at the time prompted them to ask the late Queen's youngest son, Prince Edward, to serve as their head of state.The unusual offer was called "charming" but had to be sensibly declined by Buckingham Palace.
