They are considered among the most down-to-earth royals despite the fact their public profile has increased in recent years.

It's something they have instilled in their children, who, despite their lineage, are unlikely to ever take on official royal roles.

"We try to bring them up with the understanding they are very likely to have to work for a living," Sophie told The Sunday Times in 2020. "Hence we made the decision not to use HRH titles. They have them and can decide to use them from 18, but I think it's highly unlikely."

Sophie has said Edward is 'very engaged as a father'

The Countess also spoke lovingly about her husband and his role within their family.

"He is very good at barbecues, and the children love those. He takes our son fishing, does a lot of riding with our daughter, he is very engaged as a father."
