Seven-year-old Princess Charlotte could very well have a very different and less royal future as compared to older brother Prince George.
According to a royal expert Princess Charlotte, currently third in line to the throne only behind father Prince William and brother Prince George, is growing up with the expectation of getting a job, not of being a full time working royal.
Previously we expected Charlotte to be given the title of Princess Royal and work as a full-time royal supporting her dad and brother when they ascend the throne.
Diary editor Richard Eden, writing in the Daily Mail’s Palace Confidential, explains:”From what I hear, the Prince and Princess of Wales want Charlotte, aged seven, to grow up with the expectation that she will get a job and not be a full-time royal.
“This path for the young Princess would be in keeping with her grandfather, King Charles III’s, vision for a slimmed-down monarchy.”
Although, historian Dr. Tessa Dunlop has predicted roles for all of the Prince and Princess of Wales’ children at King Charles’ Coronation on May 6.
Dr. Dunlop explains that children are expected to be seen in their finery alongside the adults: “The idea of Prince George as a cherub-like page boy or indeed Charlotte as a maid of honour is too good to be true but would signal a break with precedent.
“Nine-year-old George isn’t too young – the 12th Duke of Devonshire was page boy to the Mistress of Robes at that age for the 1953 coronation.”
“But George is directly in line to the throne so unlikely to be given what is effectively a servile role – albeit it an exceptional one, ” she adds.
“While he won’t be carrying Grandpa’s train, George alongside siblings Charlotte and Louis will be a big visual pull at the coronation – just as Prince Charles was at his mother’s.
As for Charlotte, Dr. Dunlop expects her to attend the event wearing a very special item: “Expect Charlotte in a dainty coronet [small crown] – perhaps even the one the late Queen wore to her father’s coronation aged 10 – and the two brothers in frock coats and breeches.
“Kate loves dressing up her children, so objections are unlikely. And the money shot everyone will want is a snap of the three siblings in their finery alongside the King and the Queen on Buckingham Palace balcony after the service.”
