Key changes that could occur during reign of King Charles – including fewer working royals

Working royals are those who fulfil duties on behalf of the Crown and benefit from the taxpayer-funded Sovereign Grant, which stands at £86.3million for 2022 to 2023.

The Daily Express reported that the idea of reducing the number of working royals to seven, which would likely be the King, Queen Consort, Prince and Princess of Wales, the Princess Royal, and the Earl and Countess of Wessex, was popular with the public.

A survey by Savanta ComRes of 2,351 Britons between September 16 to 18 found the slimmed-down monarchy was backed by 65 percent of respondents, while seven percent opposed it and the rest did not hold an opinion.

At the moment, several of the late Queen’s cousins are working royals including Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, Princess Alexandra, Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester and his wife Birgitte, Duchess of Gloucester.
