Charles will inherit his father's dukedom upon Phillip's death. Next in line to that title is William, Charles' son. Either Her Majesty or King Charles III will have to write letters patent to reverse the course of this title being inherited within Charles' male line and transfer it to his youngest brother, Edward. Not a smooth transition by any means.

.......so the most likely future is that Edward simply waits until both of his parents are deceased to receive his father's title.

I think I read somewhere that Charles has promised his parents that he will agree to the transfer of the title of Duke of Edinburgh to Edward at the appropriate time.

We're seeing quite a bit here about Prince Harry's tour of the Caribbean, but not a word about poor Edward and Sophie!

I've really had to search for news about Edward and Sophie's engagements. What I do find are mainly photographs of the couple attending various events.

The Wessex Family enjoying at day at the Ascot races.

http://www.newmyroyals.com/2012/12/the-wessex-family-at-ascot-races.html

The children are ADORABLE and getting so big! Maybe this will be the year we will get to see James walking to Christmas services with the rest of the family? There seems to be a set age when young royals walk with the older royals, but I just don't know what it is.

Lady Louise looks so very much like her father when he was a child.  Anyone else notice?

I agree 100%! I also think there's a resemblance to a Princess Anne when she was a child, and also (for sure!) The Queen when she was a child!

There is a resemblance with her grandmother when she was a child, but I cannot help me she reminds me more of her grandfather Prince Philip
when he was in the same age.

Here's Phillip in 1933.

I can understand what you are saying, and can see a slight resemblance.

Here it's more obvious. Seems she got the looks of both grandparents! Still say I can see more of The Queen in ehr as a child though, but that's just my solid opinion.

I see it a tad bit. I've always thought that Prince Harry resembled the duke most in the family....him as well as his father Prince Charles.
