Both no longer perform any official duties to the royal family. However, due to their rank in the line of succession, they were still two of the five state advisors to the British monarch under current rules.

As the highest official in the royal family, Lord Andrew Parker of Mensemmeer announced in the British House of Lords on Monday afternoon that Charles is proposing to appoint his sister Princess Anne (72) and younger brother Prince Edward (58) as state chancellor. .

The King’s letter read by Lord Parker stated that this was “to ensure that public affairs are taken care of when I am not present, for example when performing official duties abroad”.

Representing the King when traveling abroad or in the event of a serious illness regulated by law in Great Britain and can only be changed with the consent of Parliament.

Until now, it was conceivable that the king could be represented by his partner, consort King Camilla (75), as well as four members of the highest-ranking royal family in the line of succession who are also over 21 years old. These are currently heir to the throne Prince William (40), Prince Harry, Prince Andrew and his daughter, Princess Beatrice (34).

It is now feared that a case may arise in which Andrew will have an official role. Queen Elizabeth II’s second eldest son, who died in September, is no longer considered socially acceptable due to his involvement in the abuse scandal surrounding the late American millionaire Jeffrey Epstein. According to reports, a similar amendment to the law will be passed later this year. (sda/dpa)
