Prince Charles is said to have put an end to any speculation about Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie’s royal destiny.
Jo Elvin, the host of MailPlus’ Palace Confidential, discussed the possibilities with Richard Kay.
He began by mentioning the princesses’ rapid surge in public attention, but confessed, “I don’t think they will have a formal royal function at all.”
“The Prince of Wales has made it plain that he wants a smaller royal family in the future. It’s doubtful that it will be expanded to include the York girls to aid the royal cause.”
“They will feature from time to time. It does seem they want to have a royal role, but they do have full-time lives out of royal duty.”
