Prince William and Kate Middleton’s daughter will face harsher criticism due to being fourth in line to the throne behind her older brother, Prince George. According to royal commentator Camilla Tominey, being a female could also contribute to increased scrutiny for the young royal.

In the documentary William and Kate: The Journey, Ms Tominey said: “I’m sure all eyes will be on Charlotte — in fact, there’ll be even more scrutiny for her because she’s female.”

The documentary’s voiceover added: “Princess Charlotte’s birth has heralded a new era of girl power into the British Royal Family.

“After Queen Elizabeth II’s reign is over, the prospect of three male Kings means the Royal Family will not see a female on the throne for many years to come.”

The royal expert explained how media coverage of Princess Charlotte will be similar to that of her uncle, the Duke of Sussex.

She said: “How lovely to have Charlotte bringing up the rear — she’s rather unkindly called the ‘Spare to the Heir’, as Prince Harry is.

“But, as he has proved himself, it’s a role you can make your own.”

But according to royal writer Katie Nicholl, the Duke lay the foundations for future royals to pursue an independent career separate from the Firm.

Speaking on Channel 5’s Secrets of Royal Palaces, Ms Nicholl said: “This was Prince Harry relinquishing his title, military appointments, quitting the Royal Family for an independent life.

“In many ways, Prince Harry was setting a precedent for the next generation of royals.

“If this works it may well be a blueprint for Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis and other royal children down the line of succession.”

Royal commentator Ingrid Seward pointed out that Prince Harry’s decision to step down from his royal duties did not come without some sorrow.

Ms Seward said: “Prince Harry said we want to move to North America but we want to keep all our charities, patronages and everything going here.

“The Queen’s senior advisers said you can’t have one foot in the Royal Family and one foot out.

“That is not going to work, you have to decide.

“So with some regret, Harry said, okay, we will go then.”
