Edward is likely to take solace in the fact that he has recently been appointed to the esteemed Order of the Thistle, which the palace called ‘the greatest order of chivalry in Scotland’.

However, the Companion of Honor is known as a particularly special award given to those who have made significant contributions to the arts, science, medicine or government over a long period of time.

Previous recipients include actress Maggie Smithphysicist Stefan Hawkingpolitician Jan Major and bishop Desmond Tutu.

“They have really stepped up their commitment to service in recent years. Edward’s household hoped he would receive an honor,” the source added. “He is dedicated to the arts, and that is often overlooked in his theater work.”

According to the insider: “Sophie has supported him through this transition period and they really hope this leads to something bigger and shows they are up to the task.”

“It was disappointing, the gut punch, but they are still as loyal as ever,” the source continued. “Charles has done nothing but sing their praises lately and it has brought them even closer together as brothers.”

However, Edward was determined to honor his brother as he stepped out in London in the early hours of Thursday, April 25, to lead the Royal Family in tribute to the fallen members of the Australian and New Zealand Armed Forces on Anzac Day.

The Duke of Edinburgh attended the Dawn Service at Hyde Park Corner at the New Zealand Memorial.

He looked somber and moved during the ceremony. Anzac Day is the Australian and New Zealand equivalent of Memorial Day, which commemorates the 1915 Gallipoli landing of Australian and New Zealand troops in World War I and commemorates all the nation’s personnel who fought and died in conflicts, of whom many did so together with the British. forces.

Royal commentator Sarah Louise Robertson tells Us that despite the criticism, Edward would never shirk his new responsibilities.

“That King Charles has chosen his youngest brother to take charge of the royal family today as they celebrate Anzac Day is a sign of how much Edward has grown comfortably into royal life and how much his brother admires and trusts him,” adds Robertson. ‘A few decades ago, few would have ever imagined that the now Duke of Edinburgh would be capable of such an undertaking.’

She continues: ‘Until fatherhood came along, he seemed to be struggling for a role, humiliating the royals as he made the disastrous TV show. It’s a royal knockout. … But he’s done well over the last few years.”

Royal commentator Afua Hagan also tells Us: “It’s a very busy day for Edward. He will also attend the Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving in Westminster later today.”

Hagan added: ‘He’s also going to lay a wreath at the Cenotaph and he’s doing that on behalf of King Charles, and he’s doing this on behalf of Prince William, who is adjusting his schedule to support Kate.
