Speculation abounds regarding the British royal family as Prince Edward and his wife Sophie undertake significant foreign visits to Turkey and Italy.
Prince Edward's "power of soft diplomacy" meeting with President Erdogan raises questions about the state of relations between King Charles, Queen Camilla, and Prince William, who was seemingly sidelined.
Edward's sensitive task for the UK government underscores their trust in him,
leaving some wondering why the Foreign Secretary wasn't chosen.
Meanwhile, Sophie represented King Charles at an Italian funeral,
with critics suggesting that this move was a government and monarch decision to send her instead of Prince William.
