Both no longer perform any official duties for the royal family. However, due to their position in the line of succession, they are still two of the British monarch’s five advisers of state under current rules.

Charles is proposing that his sister Princess Anne, 72, and his youngest brother Prince Edward, 58, become advisers of state, Lord Andrew Parker of Minsmere, the most senior member of the royal household, announced in Britain’s House of Lords on Monday afternoon. .

This is to “ensure that public affairs are attended to when I am unavailable, for example on official duties abroad,” said the king’s letter, which was read by Lord Parker.

Representing the King when traveling abroad or in case of serious illness is regulated by law in Great Britain and can only be changed with the consent of Parliament.

Until now, it was assumed that the monarch could be represented by his partner, royal consort Camilla, 75, as well as the four highest-ranking kings in the line of succession, who are also over 21. These are currently the heirs to the throne Prince William (40), Prince Harry and Prince Andrew and his daughter Princess Beatrice (34).

Now he is worried that there could be a situation where Andrew has an official role. Queen Elizabeth II’s second-eldest son, who died in September, is no longer considered socially acceptable because of his involvement in the abuse scandal surrounding the late American multi-millionaire Jeffrey Epstein. According to reports, the corresponding amendment to the law will be approved later this year. (sda/dpa)
