Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, (born Edward George Nicholas Paul Patrick; 9 October 1935) is a member of the British royal family and first cousin to Queen Elizabeth II.

Prince Edward was born in No.3 Belgrave Square, London. He was the eldest son of Prince George and Princess Mariana of Greece and Denmark.

He is a first cousin of Queen Elizabeth II through their fathers, Prince George, Duke of Kent, and King George VI. He has held the title of Duke of Kent since the death of his father in the airplane crash on 25 August 1942.

Since his mother, Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark, was a cousin of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Edward is both a second cousin and first cousin once removed to Prince Charles and his siblings.[1]

Prince Edward is married to Katharine Worsley. They have three children: George Windsor, Earl of St Andrews; Lady Helen Taylor and Lord Nicholas Eindsor.
