King Charles III is shaking things up!
The monarch has made a big move in how royal titles are divided, and it is costing his disgraced brother Prince Andrew. Based on Buckingham Palacehis wife Camillathe Queen has officially assumed the role of Colonel of Grenade Guards. It was an important adjustment to the high-ranking military position of the royal family, but one King Charles clearly felt he had to!
Back in 2017, Andrew first inherited that colonel post from his father, Prince Philip. By that time, the Duke of Edinburgh had retired from public life. So he has gracefully moved away from the noble and prestigious title – and Andrew is expected to shine as his replacement. It is also considered a highly sought after role. Prince Philip served in his post for more than 42 years and was particularly popular with the ranks of the military during his time.
For a while, Prince Andrew was trying to make it work. He even took riding lessons to prove he had the strong riding skills needed for some aspects of the role. But that’s a disaster BBC interview decrease in 2019, and last Queen Elizabeth II moved to remove Andrew from his official royal duties. At that time, like DailyMail.com of note, insiders claimed Prince Andrew was particularly subjected to “extreme humiliation” in stripped of the rank of Colonel with the Grenadier Guard. But the subversion continues, as we well know!
Now, Camilla holds the title, and it really could have been a smart move by Queen Elizabeth’s son. For one, the Queen Consort is currently the highest-ranking woman in the royal family – so Prince Andrew is incorrect there is a reason to complain with appointment. Plus, Charles has moved on to add to his list of promotions, even beyond Camilla. He really accomplishes everything in his role as king!
Buckingham Palace also noted that Princess Catherine has been appointed to the post of Colonel of Irish Guards. That position was previously held by her husband, Prince William. However, he has progressed to become a Colonel of Welsh Guards, to replace. This new appointment for Kate marks her first military role! And although she is not expected to wear a uniform for it, it is reportedly an important act to closely link Kate and William to the nation as they undertake many royal duties. more family.
By the way, Prince Harry – who served two tours in Afghanistan – was likely promoted to colonel of a regiment himself. However, after he and his wife Meghan Markle Retired from royal duties and moved to California, those plans were slightly altered. So King Charles make some adjustments this.
The big news here, however, is that Camilla has been appointed to the former role of Prince Andrew. The arrival of the Queen Consort as part of these military functions is definitely a big move for the way the royal family is run! The changes will take place now and be visible next year Trooping colorsscheduled to take place in June.
