Edward, Prince of Wales (1894-1972), King Edward VIII, Duke of Windsor, on a route march with the Grenadier Guards in 1914. The prince was keen to see active service but his position meant that the establishment were keen to protect him. He is famously quoted, 'What does it matter if I am killed? I have four brothers'. He was given an appointment behind the lines and was allowed to visit the Front under certain conditions, but he continued to demand permission to fight.
