Meet Prince Edward, the Only Child of Queen Elizabeth II & Prince Philip Who Has Not Been Divorced
Of the four children of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, only Prince Edward has not been divorced.
Prince Edward, who is tenth in line to the throne, has been married to Sophie Rhys-Jones since June 19, 1999.
The youngest child of the Queen and Prince Philip. Edward’s siblings are Prince Charles, Princess Anne, and Prince Andrew.
Edward and Sophie, who tied the knot in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, share two children: Lady Louise Windsor, and James, Viscount Severn.

TAKING OVER MORE ROYAL RESPONSIBILITIES
Edward has taken on a more active role in the Royal household, following his father’s retirement. He used to serve in the marines and had a stint as a television producer.
His wife Sophie has noticeably been keeping a low profile.
She is the second child of Christopher Bournes Rhys-Jones, a retired salesman, and the late Mary Rhys-Jones, a secretary.
Unlike other royal weddings, Edward and Sophie’s wedding was not televised and had no ceremonial or military involvement.
On the wedding day, Sophie looked stunning in a silk organza Samantha Shaw dress adorned with 235,000 crystals and pearls.
She also wore a tiara that came from the Queen's private collection, and she looked beautiful.
Made up of four open scrollwork motifs, the tiara was designed and remodeled by the Crown Jeweller, David Thomas of Asprey and Garrard. The Queen conferred the titles of the Earl of Wessex and Viscount Severn upon Prince Edward.
In effect, Sophie became known as Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex.
In Scotland, the couple was known as the Earl and Countess of Forfar, titles they were conferred in March 2019.
