King Charles III expands the circle of his representatives
In this way, it avoids disempowering Prince Harry and Andrew
Son Prince Harry and brother Prince Andrew are considered the black sheep in the royal family of King Charles III. – but despite public displeasure, both act as “state advisors”. The monarch does not want to change anything about it, yet it weakens their position.
Can King Charles III. If you are not fulfilling your duties as a monarch, there are a number of representatives from the family available. Including his brother Prince Andrew and his son Prince Harry.

As the top representative of the royal household, Lord Andrew Parker of Minsmere (60), announced in the British House of Lords on Monday afternoon, Charles proposes that his sister Princess Anne (72) and his youngest brother Prince Edward (58) “State Counselors” close. This is to “ensure that public affairs are attended to when I am unavailable, such as on official duties abroad,” said the letter, which was read by Lord Parker on behalf of the king.
Shame on Andrew and Harry
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 fears there could be a situation where Prince Andrew or Prince Harry would play an official role. The second eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II, who died in September, is no longer considered socially acceptable due to his involvement in the abuse scandal surrounding the late American multi-millionaire Jeffrey Epstein (1953-2019).
There are fears that the son of King Charles could cause great damage to the royal family with his memoirs, which will be published this winter. According to reports, the corresponding amendment to the law will be approved later this year. Scandal Prince Andrew was relieved of his royal duties in 2020 after allegations of abuse, and the same year saw the decisive Megxit of Prince Harry, his permanent move to the United States. (SDA/las)
