Prince Charles’s plans for a slimmed-down monarchy will grant his two grandchildren “more freedom”, claimed royal author Ingrid Seward. Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3, will receive a “less royal existence” in comparison to their older brother and father, who are in direct line to the throne. 

Royal biographer Ingrid Seward said: “When they’re growing up, their grandfather will be on the throne for a bit and he’s talked about this slimmed-down monarchy.

“It is quite possible that they are not even going to be involved very much.

“I think they will have to be given more freedom.

“Obviously Charles is right in the firing line with Harry, so he can see the mistakes he made with Harry.”

Prince Harry has openly criticised Prince Charles since leaving the Royal Family, saying he felt “really let down” by his father’s handling of the Megxit situation, and for denying his son Archie a title and security. 

Ingrid Seward continued: “Harry just did what he wanted basically. So did William up to a point.

“But I think that Charlotte and Louis will have a very much less royal existence. I don’t think anything will happen until after the Queen has gone to greener pastures.”

Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are currently fourth and fifth in line to the throne. 

Prince William and Kate’s eldest child, Prince George, is currently third in line and will succeed his grandfather and father to the throne. 

So far, the three children have been relatively sheltered from the media, and have only made public appearances with the Royal Family on special occasions, such as Trooping the Colour. 

Princess Charlotte and Prince George attend St Thomas’s School in Battersea, whilst Prince Louis attends Willcocks Nursery School. 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge reside at Kensington Palace with their three children, and will occasionally share family photographs through their social media accounts. 

A recent photograph showed Princess Charlotte playing with a butterfly as part of a Save Butterflies campaign.

Their grandfather Prince Charles has been planning for a slimmed-down monarchy since the 1990s. 

After he ascends to the throne, the Prince of Wales is hoping to limit the number of working royals and the number that receive funding from the Sovereign Grant. 

The Queen currently relies on the ‘Magnificient Seven’ to represent her at formal engagements, whose members include Prince Charles and Camilla, Prince William and Kate, Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex, and Princess Anne. 

It is believed that Prince Charles wished to reduce this number to those directly in line to the throne.
