Up until now, The Crown has been acting like Prince Charles and Princess Anne were Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip‘s only kids, but we were finally introduced to Prince Edward and Prince Andrew ughhhhhhh in season 4—and yikes. The show did not paint the kindest picture! According to The Crown, Edward was super spoiled, money-hungry, bullied-yet-mean to his fellow students at school, and also pretty stuck-up and elitist. Here’s a direct quote from our guy on the show that basically sums it up: “People will always want me—and what do you expect me to do about that, say no?”

Delightful! Seems like a fun dude! But…what was Prince Edward like in real life? First of all, he could be Prince William’s long lost twin, if you ask me. And as you’ll see in this here gallery, he spent most of his time serving look, after look, after look. Edward is also rumored to be one of the Queen’s favorite children, and in recent years he has managed to avoid scandal—unlike his siblings. As a source told The Express: “Edward has moulded into a quiet and efficient figure who does not seek attention or acquire headlines. He and [his wife] Sophie are liked for being dutiful and uncomplaining.”

On that note, check out some truly iconic pics of Edward from around the time that season 4 of The Crown took place (aka the roaring and sartorially questionable 1980s).

Much like the English major you hooked up with in college, Edward enjoyed pairing his jaunty newsboy hat with a camera dangling around his neck.

In order to mark his 18th birthday, the royals forced Edward to sit in a pile of dead leaves with the most aggressively popped collar of all time. No wonder he requested an emotional support dog.

All I will say is that Prince Edward is not the star of this photo.

Cosplaying as an actual Disney prince, don’t even worry about it.

A not-at-all staged photo of Edward holding some definitely-not-blank pieces of paper and a binder that for sure has real work in it.

No one:

Absolutely no one:

Prince Edward in this photo: MARRY ME JULIET YOU’LL NEVER HAVE TO BE ALONE I LOVE YOU AND THAT’S ALL I REALLY KNOW.
