KING Charles’ snub to Prince Andrew on his first birthday as monarch was “no coincidence at all”An expert stated that.
His Majesty kickstarted a “seriously necessary change”Richard Fitzwilliams made another statement to add to the coffin of the Duke of York’s return to public life.
Yesterday King Charles stated that he would be “most content”To increase the number of Counsellors to State who can perform constitutional roles in his absence.
The Earl of Wessex, his siblings, and the Princess Royal, can now assume the role. The status was previously held by Andrew and Prince Harry.
The interview was given by Mr Fitzwilliams Mirror“This is a great example of King Charles making a very sensible, necessary decision, very early on in his reign. It’s also no accident that it was announced on his Birthday.
“The news breaking on his Birthday says it all.
“Since Andrew has been disgraced and it is highly unlikely that this will change, the situation was perilous.
He said, “Public opinion is strongly against Andrew, and there is absolutely zero chance according to all reports.
“The king is absolute on the issue and so is Prince William. That’s it.
Central Recorder was also informed by Angela Levin, a Royal expert who said that Prince Harry would feel neglected by the changes.
King Charles, writing to the House of Lords, stated that he would be “most content”If the number Counsellors of state is greater than “be increased to include my brother and sister, the Princess Royal and Earl of Wessex.”
The statement read: “To ensure continued efficiency of public business when I’m unavailable, such as while I’m undertaking official duties overseas, I confirm that I would be most content should Parliament see fit for the number of people who may be called upon to act as counsellors of State under the terms of the Regency acts 1937 to 1963 to be increased to include my sister and brother, the Princess Royal, and the Earl of Wessex and Forfar. Both of whom have previously undertaken this role.”
It was previously reported that Charles was considering changing the law so counsellors of the state are only working members of the Royal Family.
Both Harry and Andrew remain Counsellors of State under British law, although the pair are no longer working royals.
In October, the House of Lords urged for a “sensible amendment” because Harry lives 5,000-miles away in California and disgraced Andy has been dispatched from public life under a sex abuse cloud.
Andrew was stripped from his royal roles in February. However, he has been a Counsellor for State since his 21st Birthday in 1981 and Harry since September 2005 when he reached the same age.
The House of Lords was previously informed by Viscount Stansgate that there should be a modification to the Regency Act, now Charles is King.
He stated: “Otherwise are the Government happy with a situation in which the counsels of State and Regency powers may be exercised b he Duke of York or the Duke Sussex, one of whom is no longer active in public life?”
“Is it not time for the Government to approach the King to see whether a sensible amendment can be made to this Act?”
Although Queen Elizabeth II has not been to the UK since 2015, the King, Queen Consort, and Prince of Wales are expected to travel the world on Coronation tours.
In the 1970s, Princess Margaret and Queen Mother stepped in as replacements for the Queen when she was on official tour.
