Prince Edward, the youngest of the four children Elizabeth II had with Philip of Edinburgh, orhe is currently ranked 14th in the line of succession to the throne. What’s more Earl of Wessex, holds the title of Earl of Forfar, a dignity that he wears when in Scotland. Although it seems quite unlikely that one day he would be able to sit on the British throne (he has his brothers and all his nephews before him) the truth is that there was a time when It was raised that he could be King, although not of Great Britain, but of Estonia, which since 1991 is an independent Baltic republic after the disappearance of the Soviet Union. A group of politicians turned to him in the 1990s to act as head of state, according to a book. A fact that, if it had taken hold, would have completely changed the history of the United Kingdom and Europe as we know it.
The incredible story has been published in Sunday Telegraph, where the book is cited The Royal Family Operations Manual, by royal biographer Robert Jobson. According to the author, the Estonian Independent Royalist Party approached Prince Edward in 1994 to become the monarch of the country. For them it was “A young British prince much admired by Estonians” and they described it as “Perfect: young, real, artistic and talented. We greatly admire His Royal Highness Prince Edward. We also admire Great Britain, its monarchy, democracy and culture ”. It is also told in the book that politicians they fixed on Edward of England because of his great interest in the arts, since his experience as an actor and television producer would be ideal to create the figure of a new King and thus combine ancient culture with modern politics. The proposal fell on deaf ears and, according to reports, a Buckingham Palace spokesman at the time rushed to clarify the situation and called it as “A lovely idea, but quite unlikely”. The now defunct Estonian Independent Realist party was surprisingly successful in the first post-Soviet elections. Its most prominent members were known comedians of the country and in their program they called for the establishment of Estonia as a monarchy, modeled after Sweden and Norway.
