King Charles made changes to the Royal Family public knowledge even before assuming his new position as leader of the kingdom. According to previous reports, Prince Charles had discussed cutting down the monarchy.
“Charles has never shied away from his desire for a more streamlined monarchy when he assumes the throne. The balcony of Buckingham Palace would definitely fall, he reportedly added, and he understands that the public doesn’t want to pay for a large monarchy.
There is, in fact, an ongoing discussion regarding the monarchy’s viability. While some people adore it for the protection it offers, others think it is an outmoded institution that burdens the taxpaying public with excessive costs.
Newsweek stated that a 2021 YouGov research found that 41% of 18 to 24 year olds prefered the notion of an elected head of state than a monarch.
Knowing this, King Charles and his son William are making every effort to modernise the monarchy, which is of course a difficult process that takes time. It’s safe to claim that some changes did begin with King Charles because he was the first royal to attend college and get a degree. King Charles was also the first monarch to not be home-schooled.
Charles has received recognition for his support of environmental movements and his efforts to better the lives of young people in underserved areas. The same reasons are important to his older son, who holds them in high regard.
Speaking of Charles and William, royal authority Katie Nicholl noted that the death of Prince Philip in April 2021 “sharpened the focus on the future” for the couple at the time.
A family acquaintance assured Nicholl that “they are completely on the same page” and that “they are closer now than they have ever been.” “They communicate practically daily, and their relationship is really loving and sincere.
They have faith in the monarchy and think it will continue to exist and serve a useful function. They understand that it needs to modernise and that after the Queen’s reign ends, changes will occur.
“William knows that the monarchy needs to modernise in order to survive,” she continued. When he comes to the throne, he intends to carry on his grandmother’s legacy in his own unique way.
According to experts, one threat to the monarchy is the slimmed-down monarchy, which results in fewer royal engagements than in previous years.
The author of the Civitas analysis, Frank Young, was quoted in the Express as saying that “the Royal family as we know it is on the verge of collapse and risks abolishing itself by stealth if the King doesn’t take steps to boost visits that have fallen radically over the last decade.”
“The Royal family is dependent on a small number of hard-working people, with Charles, Anne, and Edward performing about half the work, due to death, scandal, and resignation. In order to avoid accepting a Royal Family that is further removed from the people than at any point in the last 100 years, we now need new working royals.
The number of working royals has decreased since Harry and Meghan left the Firm, though Harry is still a Counsellor of State, who “are authorised to carry out most of the official duties of the Sovereign, for example, attending Privy Council meetings, signing routine documents, and receiving the credentials of new ambassadors to the United Kingdom.” There is a problem since, in addition to Harry, Andrew and Beatrice are non-working royals.
Harry, Andrew, and Beatrice serving as potential regal understudies, in Daniela Elser’s opinion, “makes about as much sense as letting Cheryl Cole fill in for the Home Secretary or Take That’s Gary Barlow getting a shot at being the governor of the Bank of England.”
That it was even remotely possible for them to start Parliament, formally certify documents, or host Privy Council sessions? This is a lengthy way of stating that the king simply cannot afford for his brother and son, with their indomitable egos and vast stores of resentment, to continue causing trouble on a semi-regular basis.
In addition to the diminished royal interaction with the British populace, according to Elser, there are eight words that have the power to “bring King Charles down” and maybe bring about the end of the monarchy: “The Duke of York” and “The Duke of Sussex.”
“His Majesty is putting his reign – and the whole palace shebang – in jeopardy as long as the eight words ‘The Duke of York’ and ‘The Duke of Sussex’ appear on the royal website as Counsellors of State,” Elser wrote.
She continued, “[Andrew and Harry] are both a seemingly endless source of trouble for the king yet both remain part of the royal fabric.
We hope that King Charles will be able to handle all of the difficulties that come with his new position.
