    Charles moves to exclude Harry and Andrew from power

    Princes Andrew, Harry and Princess Beatrice could lose their 'stand-in status' if King Charles makes counsellors working members of the Royal family. The Duke of York, Duke of Sussex and Princess Beatrice may not be able to stand in for the King if he proceeds with plans to amend the law so that counsellors of state are all working royals.

    The monarch's spouse and the four adults next in line can take the role of counsellors of state for official business as part of the 1937 Regency Act.

    During Queen Elizabeth's reign, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge, the Duke of Sussex and the Duke of York took on these roles. The monarch's spouse and the four adults next in line can take the role of counsellors of state for official business as part of the 1937 Regency Act The monarch's spouse and the four adults next in line can take the role of counsellors of state for official business as part of the 1937 Regency Act

    With Camilla now Queen Consort, she can be included in this role, alongside Princess Beatrice — who has moved up the line of succession.
    However with Princes Andrew, Harry and Princess Beatrice all non-working royals, it is understood that the King is looking to change the law.
    He may bring his siblings Princess Anne, the Princess Royal, and Prince Edward, the Earl of Sussex, forward to become official stand-ins, The Telegraph reported. This would mean that the role of counsellor of state is no longer based on the line of succession.

    What a travesty. Her brothers are Supreme Dolts, she is the only survivor with any sense of propriety and honor.

    Don't know why I was expecting to read he'd sent them to The Tower for "safekeeping" like in the good old days.

    Anne has been the very model of Royal Discretion- She has never done anything to bring scandal to the RF, and has stoically done her duty without a word of complaint or criticism. She knows which side her bread is buttered.. She has never abused her position, never sold access to herself, never scrounged off rich friends - the total antipathy of the dolt Andrew. She hass also represented Britain in sport, Horse Riding and Dressage. Cant fault her. She also saw through megain from day 1. She is known not to suffer fools gladly, and has an acerbic, acid tongue when crossed.

    We were working at the new Cheltenham shopping arcade, HRH princess Anne was there to open it officially, crowds were in the street, I was positioned over a walkway above it all, she looked up, I waved, she waved back…. Beautiful moment form me to be singled out by royalty.
    RIP Wes.

    I am not a royalist by any stretch of the imagination. In exchange for attending state dinners, signing papers, and bringing tourist dollars to Britain, Elizabeth received the best food, housing, health care, and income. I think she got the best end of the deal. That being said, what did make Elizabeth worthy of respect, is that she was the epitome of a lady. Scandal free in her life, good manners, an old-fashioned LADY in the true sense of the word. I think Anne reflects her upbringing and, like her mother, is a true lady also.

    You typed "megain"...was that a spelling mistake, or a very clever use of two words written as one? If it was the latter, then, well done and well said.
