Before his accession to the throne, Edward was the longest serving heir apparent in British history. He was surpassed by his great great grandson Prince Charles on 20 April 2011. The title Prince of Wales is not automatically held by the heir apparent; it is bestowed by the reigning monarch at a time of his or her choosing. Edward was the longest serving holder of that title until surpassed by Charles on 9 September 2017; Edward was Prince of Wales between 8 December 1841 and 22 January 1901. Charles was created Prince of Wales on 26 July 1958.
As king, Edward VII proved a greater success than anyone had expected, but he was already past the average life expectancy and had little time left to fulfil the role. In his short reign, he ensured that his second son and heir, George V, was better prepared to take the throne. Contemporaries described their relationship as more like affectionate brothers than father and son, and on Edwards death George wrote in his diary that he had lost his best friend and the best of fathers. He went on to write that he never had a cross word with his father in his life and that he was heart broken and overwhelmed with grief.
Edward has been recognised as the first truly constitutional British sovereign and the last sovereign to wield effective political power. Though lauded as a French Peacemaker, he had been afraid his nephew, the German Emperor Wilhelm II, would tip Europe into war. Four years after Edwards death, World War I broke out. The naval reforms he had supported and his part in securing the Triple Entente between Britain, France, and Russia, as well as his relationships with his extended family, fed the paranoia of the German Emperor, who blamed Edward for the war. Publication of the official biography of Edward was delayed until 1927 by its author, who feared German propagandists would select material to portray Edward as an anti German warmonger. Lee was also hampered by the extensive destruction of Edwards personal papers; Edward had left orders that all his letters should be burned on his death. Subsequent biographers have been able to construct a more rounded picture of Edward by using material and sources that were unavailable before.

Hever Castle is located in the village of Hever, Kent, near Edenbridge. It began as a country house, built in the 13th century. From 1462 to 1539, it was the seat of the Boleyn family.
Anne Boleyn, the second queen consort of King Henry VIII of England, spent her early youth there after her father, Thomas Boleyn, inherited it in 1505. The castle passed to him upon the death of his father, Sir William Boleyn. It later came into the possession of King Henry VIIIs fourth wife, Anne of Cleves following the annulment of their marriage. The castle is now open to the public as a tourist attraction.
