During a pre-recorded interview with ITV, Edward reflected on his parents' long-lasting relationship, saying, "To have someone that you confide in and smile about some things that you couldn't perhaps smile about in public is very, very important." He said he'll remember this father's passion for cricket and carriage driving, as well as his "fantastic" sense of humor: "It was always his humor that came through, the twinkle in his eye."
