Is there new scolding for the outsider princes? Harry (38) and Andrew (62) are considered the black sheep of the British royal family. The one because 'Megxit' and Oprah interview , the other because of the Jeffrey Epstein abuse scandal . There have already been consequences – but now the two are threatened with a new royal gossip from Harry's dad, King Charles III (74).
Even if Prince Andrew has already been stripped of his honorary military titles and emigrant Prince Harry turned away from royal duties, both men are currently still in the position of 'Counselor of State'. So as state councilors who are allowed to represent the king. Although both no longer perform official duties for the British royal family, they still retain this deputy title because of their rank in the line of succession.
A situation that many do not like. Labor MP Viscount Stansgate recently announced in the British House of Lords that he wanted to discuss 'a reasonable change' with Charles. The long-awaited change in the law is intended to prevent royals who have not regularly carried out official duties for the past two years from being appointed councillors.
Monarch Charles also plans to effectively oust brother Andrew and son Harry from their roles as potential representatives. According to the head of the royal household, Lord Andrew Parker of Minsmere, the regent proposes to add his sister Princess Anne (72) and his youngest brother Prinz Edward (58) to make Counselors of State. This is to ensure 'that public affairs are attended to when I am unavailable,' as in the performance of official duties abroad, the King's letter read by Lord Parker said. According to reports, a corresponding amendment to the law will be passed later this year.
Representation of the King when traveling abroad or in the event of a serious illness is regulated by law and can only be changed by Parliament. Only a team of two of the five Counselors can stand in for the monarch. The circle includes his partner, king's consort Camilla (75), as well as the four next royals in line to the throne over the age of 21. These are currently heirs to the throne Prince William (40), Prince Harry and Prince Andrew and his daughter Princess Beatrice (3. 4).
And Andrew and Harry? Are now used to being punished royally. At least the redhead will probably 'thank you' - in the form of the Highly Anticipated Harry Memoirs 'Spare' , which will be released in January 2023. And before which the British Book of Kings is already trembling. (us / mit dpa)source: vip.de
