The British royal family is bursting at the seams – what the royals need is a personal spring cleaning! Prince Charles’ plans are already becoming more concrete as to what the slim monarchy of the future should look like.
Be honest: could you list all the members of the British royal family who, as official representatives of the crown, attend mandatory appointments and Queen Elizabeth II as a full-timeroyals support? Anyone who is not on the heels of the noble houses day in and day out as a court reporter will probably start rowing with such a list. But console yourself: Even the future king of England seems to feel the same way.
Prince Charles is making cuts: the royal family must become slimmer!
Although Prince Charles has lived with the title “Heir to the Throne” for a good seven decades and will probably continue to do so for a while longer, preparations are already underway for the new era after Queen Elizabeth II, when Prince Charles will be the next king on the throne at full speed. One of the plans that the future king is already working out for his reign is to streamline the British royal family. For decades, the balcony of Buckingham Palace was in danger of collapsing as soon as all members of the royal family got together at events like “Trooping the Colour” gathered and waved to the cheering crowd. If Prince Charles has his way, that should soon be a thing of the past.
Sweden did it: This is how the royals adapt to modern times
Apparently, the heir to the throne learned a lot from his international royals colleagues in terms of the continued existence of the House of Windsor. King Carl XVI Gustav of Sweden for example already made short work of it in autumn 2019 and drastically reduced the squad of Swedish full-time royals – several family members lost their titles and duties in one fell swoop. Based on the Swedish model Now Prince Charles also wants to cut costs and shrink his monarchy – journalist and royals connoisseur Kinsey Schofield has now explained what the streamlined royal family could look like.
Prince Charles wants to slim down the royal family: who gets kicked out, who can stay?
In an interview with “Insider”, Schofield was convinced that the royal family was already in a phase of upheaval during Queen Elizabeth II’s lifetime. A taste of how a slimmer British Royalty could look like, the world already got at the conclusion of the celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II’s 70th throne jubilee, when the queen only appeared in a small circle with her son Prince Charles, his wife Camilla Parker Bowles, grandson Prince William and his wife Duchess Kate and their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis on the palace balcony.
According to Kinsey Schofield’s forecast, this is what the royal family of the future should look like; However, it is conceivable that Charles’ sister Princess Anne and the youngest of the Queen’s sons, Prince Edwardsuch as his wife, Countess Sophie of Wessex be retained as full-time royals. Including the persistently reigning Queen, without the Cambridge children, who are still minors, that would be eight people who share royal duties.
