Prince Charles’ new royal line-up unveiled as future king plans monarchy shake-up | royal | New

It has long been believed that Prince Charles, who is next in line to the throne, was planning to create a more “lite” monarchy when he takes over as head of the royal family. Speaking on the latest episode of The Daily Express’ Royal Round-Up, royal correspondent Richard Palmer discussed Charles’ royal overhaul plans with host Pandora Forsyth and discussed who could potentially ‘make the cut’ in the future composition of the monarchy.

He added: “I guess George, of course George and Charlotte are already out, and Louis [too].

“They went out for royal engagements with their parents.”

He continued: “I think George is going into his mid to late teens, we could see him doing individual things.

Meanwhile, George would likely still be in full-time teaching, so we “probably won’t see much of him”.

Mr Palmer claimed that apart from Prince Charles, Camilla and the Cambridges, ‘the jury is really out’.

He added: “I think it partly depends on when a reign change happens and [on] family status.”

He noted “in his understanding” that Charles is “very grateful” to his sister, Princess Anne.

This means that there could be “a role for her”, although it is “not certain”.


Due to the Queen’s ongoing health issues, Charles has already begun to take on a heavier role within the monarchy, often seen representing his mother at various events.

In May, the 73-year-old stood in for the Queen at the official opening of Parliament, an event the Queen has only missed twice in her 70-year reign.

He also took on additional official duties such as overseeing investiture ceremonies at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.
