Princes Andrew, Harry and Princess Beatrice could lose their ‘alternate status’

Princes Andrew, Harry and Princess Beatrice could lose their “alternate status” if King Charles makes advisers working members of the Royal Family.

The Duke of York, Duke of Sussex and Princess Beatrice may not be able to replace the king if he goes ahead with his plan to change the law so that councilors of state are all members of the royal family.

The monarch’s wife and the following four adults can assume the role of Councilors of State for official business under the Regency Act 1937.

During Queen Elizabeth’s reign, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duke of Cambridge, Duke of Sussex and Duke of York assumed these roles.

With Camilla now queen consort, she can be included in that role, alongside Princess Beatrice – who has come through the ranks.

However, with Princes Andrew, Harry and Princess Beatrice all non-working royals, it is understood the King is seeking to change the law.

He could bring his siblings, Princess Anne, Princess Royal, and Prince Edward, Earl of Sussex, to become official replacements, The Telegraph reported.

This would mean that the role of State Councilor would no longer be based on the line of succession.

As a result, Prince William, heir to the throne, may need to be formally given this role instead of relying on the traditional model.

Councilors of State, who act on behalf of the monarch when incapacitated or traveling abroad, are rarely called upon.

But in May this year, then-Prince Charles stood in for the Queen for the official opening of Parliament, alongside his son Prince William.

The law requires that two advisers be present in place of the monarch.

The King would be required to change the law through Parliament and could do so through the Regency Act if the King asked MPs to consider his request.

The late Queen previously used this act to make Prince Philip regent if their child acceded to the throne before his 18th birthday.
