King Charles III wants to change British law so that councilors of state are only active members of the royal family, according to The Telegraph.

As a result of this decision, the Duke of York, the Duke of Sussex and Princess Beatrice will lose their role as the sovereign’s deputy should the sovereign’s health prevent them from attending official events or meetings.

Under the Regency Act 1937, a monarch’s spouse (Camilla) and the four adults in line of succession to the throne (Princes William, Harry, Andrew and Princess Beatrice) can be delegated as State Counselors at official meetings.

Before Queen Elizabeth II’s death, those roles were held by the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge, the Duke of Sussex and the Duke of York. The Duke of Edinburgh also had this role before he died.

But Charles wants to change the law so that only active members of the royal family can delegate on behalf of the sovereign – meaning that apart from Prince William, everyone else – Prince Harry, Prince Andrew and Princess Beatrice – would disappear from the list.

It is rare for members of the royal family to stand in for the sovereign, but not without precedent.

In May of this year, then Prince Charles and Prince William attended the opening of the new parliamentary session on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II, after she was unable to fulfill this prerogative due to health reasons.

Any amendment to the legislation in this regard will have to be adopted by the Chambers of Parliament.
