Prince Charles will “ditch” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the royal family when he is king, a royal expert has predicted.

Author Angela Levin has said that the next in line to the throne will slimline the Firm when he is in charge.

The writer, who has had books on Harry and his mum Diana published, was echoing rumours of long suspected plans during a talkRADIO interview.

If Charles does go ahead with the streamlining process then royals not in the direct line of succession and their spouses could have their positions recalibrated.

Ms Levin said: “Prince Charles has wanted for a very long time to cut the monarchy down to save costs and to make people be worth the money that they got from the taxpayer.

“I imagine that might be when Harry and Meghan are ditched from being members of the Royal family.

“I think the outer edge, which the Queen has wanted to keep together for a very long time for sentimental reasons, which at her age she didn’t really particularly want change which I think is understandable.

“But he wants to change and I think he will do that.”

If Ms Levin is right, then those who could count themselves as senior royals could be restricted to Charles and Camilla, William and Kate, and their children.

Charles might also urge his family members to take on more typical working roles, such as in many European countries where royals are expected to have jobs.

Ms Levin went on to predict that Charles would take on more duties following the death of his father Philip.

She added: “He will also accompany the Queen, it’s said she’s going to be there opening Parliament on May 11th and Prince Charles will be accompanying her.

“I think although she wants to do her duties she will step back, even more, it’ll be quite hard to come back after the pandemic and all the isolation.

“In fact, she will be grateful for him to be taking over in making I imagine quite big decisions on behalf of the royal family.”
