There is a photograph in Young Prince Philip of the Duke of Edinburgh aged seven, looking the image of Prince Harry at a similar age.

I definitely agree! Harry looks so similar to a young Prince Phillip. Just having a look at the online preview of inside the book and think I know the photo you are on about!

It's been posted here (if it's the one I think you mean).  It's on the first page of the Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh thread.

Always Liked this family. Sophie looks as though she hasn't aged since her wedding day!

Agreed.  Has anybody come across any good pictures or plans of the Wessex' home at Bagshot Park?  I've searched and searched, but only found a few pics of a recent charity reception hosted in the house - not enough to get a feel for the interior.

I'd love nothing more but also can't find anything but the exterior

Берёзы севера мне милы,
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

In the book "Her Majesty" by Robert Hardman it mentions Prince Edward being contacted to be King of Estonia!? Which he declined. Looking at what happened to his father's family this sounds like a smart move. Who knows some fiction writer on this site might write about what would have happened if he did accept the Estonian throne
