Prince Charles reportedly wants to slim down the monarchy to just six working members when he becomes king. Friend and biographer of the late Prince Philip, Gyles Brandreth, claimed that the Royal Family will be a “leader machine” moving forward. Sunrise Royal Editor Robert Jobson explained that Princess Anne would still have a leading role in The Firm.
He told viewers: “Prince Charles has always said that he wants a slimmed-down Royal Family.
“With him and Camilla as the heads, and then focusing on Prince William and his family.
“That really is going to be it.
“Naturally, I think Princess Anne will continue in a role.”
Mr Jobson continued: “She’s very deeply respected around the world.
“While she wants to, she’ll continue her role.
“At the moment, there are so many royals being got rid of anyway.
“There seems to be less and less of them.”

The Royal Editor added: “You’ve got Harry stepping down and Andrew disappearing.
“But I don’t think any royals will lose their HRH titles.”
Mr Jobson also answered whether this meant other members of the family would lose their taxpayer funds.
He told Sunrise: “In terms of tax funding, a lot of it is coming through the Sovereign Grant anyway.

“It comes through that way so it’s not actually paid for by the taxpayer.”
The sovereign grant is the package of money that is used to pay for the official work of the monarch and her family, and also the upkeep of their properties.
The grant money comes from some of the profits that are made by the Crown of State, which is a huge portfolio of land and properties which are in the gift of the monarch.
Most of the profits go to the Treasury but a percentage goes to funding their official work. That is why it is often referred to as taxpayers’ money.
