Experts worry that under Charles, the royal family could be reduced to Camilla, William, and Kate.
When Prince Charles becomes King, the Royal Family could be reduced to simply Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince William, and Kate Middleton, according to a royal historian.
Following the death of the Queen’s husband, Prince Philip, in April at the age of 99, questions have been raised about the size of the Royal Family. Once his mother, the Queen, passes away and he ascends to the throne, royal analysts predict that his son, Prince Charles, 72, will favor a slimmed-down monarchy. According to the Royal Family’s official website, there are presently 23 persons in line for the throne, with Charles in first place as the heir presumptive.
According to royal historian Hugo Vickers, while the line of succession will stay constant, the number of royals performing public tasks would likely be reduced during Charles’ reign.
Several twentieth-century luminaries, including the Queen Mother and Princess Andrew of Greece, have been chronicled by the writer and royal biographer.
“I believe Prince Charles’ desire to shrink down the monarchy, which I understand where he’s coming from, but I think he’ll find it rather difficult,” he told This website.
“You do need people to do these duties that the king cannot accomplish.
“So, if Prince Charles isn’t cautious, he’ll be left with only him, Camilla, Prince William, and Kate, and the little ones as they grow up.”
Last year, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle abruptly left the Royal Family, according to the royal expert.
Harry and Meghan went to the United States and are now raising their two children, Archie Harrison and Lilibet Diana, in Montecito, California.
“Of course, Prince Harry is no longer on the scene, and the Princess Royal, Princess Anne, will continue to do things,” Mr Vickers said.
“Prince Edward will continue to do things, and the Royal Family members, who are actually very supportive, will gradually recede into the background.
“People like the Gloucesters, the Kents, and Princess Alexandra are sort of like life peers to them.
“They’re all of a certain age now, and they won’t be doing as much as they used to.”
Mr Vickers speculated that the Queen’s influence may be expanded in the future royal reign. “Brinkwire Summary News.”
