Kate, Princess of Wales and Prince William look set to take on even more responsibility following Megxit, an expert has claimed. Daniela Elser, a royal writer with a lifelong fascination for the Firm, made the point during a piece in the New Zealand Herald.

She wrote: “The remaining HRHs are going to be stretched ever thinner.

“Look a little further into the future and the picture gets even gloomier.

“King Charles and Queen Camilla have only about a decade of international tours left in them, leaving only William and Kate to carry the can for the crown on the world stage.

“Meanwhile, at home in the UK, by the 2030s, aside from the King and Queen, the Waleses and the Wessexes, the only other remaining name on the official working roster will be the indomitable Princess Anne.

“All this will be going on while the Waleses are busy trying to focus on their legacy, big-picture projects, William’s Earthshot Prize and Kate’s Early Years Foundation. How the dickens are they going to be able to fit it all in and occasionally sleep?

And this is before we have gotten to the Waleses’ George, Charlotte and Louis conundrum.

“Since their first bebe arrived in 2013, ‘normal’ has reportedly been their parenting byword, with them trying to give their children the least-skewed, minimally-abnormal childhoods as possible.”

Despite potentially taking on even more responsibility, neither William nor Kate were crowned as the hardest-working royals in 2022.

According to Reboot SEO Company, Princess Anne completed a total of 214 engagements.

King Charles made the second most after attending 181 events.

Prince Edward ended the year in third with 143, while wife Sophie completed 138.

The Prince of Wales ended up in fifth place, with 126 events.

Meanwhile, the Princess of Wales made just 90 appearances as she fell behind Queen Consort Camilla, the Duke of Gloucester and the Duchess of Gloucester.

Ms Elser’s claim about the couple came after the Royal Family gathered to celebrate Christmas at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham.

The Waleses joined other members of the Firm at the church, with Princess Charlotte even grinning to crowds as the Royal Family started its traditional festive walk.

The seven-year-old, who made her first Christmas Day appearance in 2019 alongside her nine-year-old brother Prince George, donned a claret coat, black tights, and shoes as the family approached the church.

Charlotte’s youngest brother Prince Louis, aged four, also joined the rest of the Firm for the first time.
