An expert has warned that King Charles could see a “burnt-out monarchy”.
George could face being a ‘lonely king’
Experts have warned that Prince George could be a “lonely King” as Charles’s new slimmed down monarchy is leading to “burn out”. Royal commentator Angela Mollard said the Prince and Princess of Wales will likely have to step up to help King Charles in his old age. She said: “There’s a glaring problem with the new look Brand Windsor. Excluding the Prince and Princess of Wales and the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, the average age of the remaining eight is 77.”
“The new King wants a ‘slimmed down’ monarchy but looking at this image, he could find himself with a burnt-out monarchy if the older generation, including himself and the Queen, become ill or infirm, leaving Kate and William to do it all.”
Ms Mollard warned this could lead to George, 9, being “stranded on his own” when he takes to the throne.
She added: “The political pressure on today’s monarchy is very different, of course. But there are real dangers on both sides of the argument.
“As the Waleses lean into their new roles and elevated status they’ll be mindful of who will support Prince George when he, in turn, becomes monarch. Will Charlotte and Louis be allies and working royals as the Princess Royal and Duke of Edinburgh are to the King? Or will this redacted royal family leave our future King stranded on his own?”
Prince George had a big part to play in the Coronation on Saturday, walking ahead of his parents as he showed his growing independence.
George was a Page of Honour at the event that was watched by millions worldwide.
He also stood separately from his parents, Kate and Prince William, on the Buckingham Palace balcony whilst watching the flypast and waving to well-wishers waiting outside.

Eyewitness describes horror moment pensioner ‘thrown 40ft’ by Duchess Sophie’s motorcade
A woman hit by Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh’s motorcade was “thrown 40 feet across the road”, an eyewitness has claimed.
A pedestrian, in her 80s, is in hospital with critical injuries after she was hit by a police car escorting the Duchess on Wednesday.
The onlooker told the Mirror the woman is “lucky to be alive” after being hit on the “nightmare” road in Earl’s Court, London.
Martin Hennessy said: “She’s lucky to be alive at all. The road is a nightmare. We’ve warned the council about it. There have been three people killed here.
“When you get to the junction you have to step out to see if anything is coming, that’s when she was hit.”
The retired antique dealer said he came out to walk his dogs when he saw what had happened.
