King Charles’ cancer diagnosis leaves the royal family in a difficult position. Prince William now has the difficult decision between choosing his immediate family or the family firm. In the absence of the King, there will be a need for other senior working royals to step up and take on more royal duties. In this episode of Royal Insight, Camilla Tominey, Associate Editor, explains how even though “Queen Camilla can carry out more royal duties to a certain extent, she doesn’t have the constitutional heft that Prince William has as heir to the thrown.” Camilla adds, “there is an expectation and need for Prince William to stand in if the king is unwell. For instance, concerning the Kings weekly audience with Rishi Sunak, constitutionally it would be inappropriate for Queen Camilla to fill that function.” “Though it may be appropriate now for Prince William to say he’s prioritising immediate family and his wife over the family firm, what is that going to look like in weeks to come?” Camilla explains, “the idea that William will carry on with his own projects and only support the king a little - I’m not sure, from a PR perspective or a practical one - that it will quite cut the mustard.” #royal #kingcharles #cancer #prince Subscribe to The Telegraph with our special offer: just £1 for 3 months.
