Charles III is the new king. before a big challenge. His plans have been known for several years: he wants to streamline the monarchy and make it future-proof. Two members of the royal family have either pulled themselves out or been removed as working royals: Prince Harry and Prince Andrew.
But one thing seems to be particularly urgent. In the past few weeks, King Charles III has been tinkering. in the answer to the question of who may represent him in certain cases. The current rule is that the four highest-ranking adults in the line of succession and the monarch's spouse can represent him in state affairs as state councilors when the monarch is out of the country. During her trip to Malta for the 2015 Commonwealth Summit, the late Queen Elizabeth II named both Harry and Andrew Councilors of State to represent them in emergencies. Currently it would be Prince William, Queen Consort Camilla, Prince Harry, Prince Andrew and Princess Beatrice as the role is assigned by rank of line of succession. For King Charles III. apparently a problem.
According to plans quoted by the "Daily Mail", he wants to expand the list to include his brother, Prince Edward, and Princess Anne. According to the Daily Mail, palace circles say they want to prevent anyone from being excluded and instead prefer to expand the king's options.
The 1974 miners' strike is often cited. Queen Elizabeth II was traveling during the riots and ensuing chaos in her home country. When the national emergency was declared in February 1974, the monarch would have had to sign two orders so that the basic needs of the citizens could be secured. But because she was not there, the two state councilors, Princess Margaret and Queen Mum, were used as substitutes.
