Dr Tessa Dunlop has spoken exclusively to Express.co.uk about the future of the British Royal Family and claimed it is most difficult for Prince Charles and Prince William, who are both patiently waiting for their chance at becoming a reigning monarch. Queen Elizabeth II who is currently on the throne, is the longest-serving monarch in Europe’s history, with 69 years under her belt as leader of Britain, but the royal expert claims it is harder for those waiting in the wings.

She explained the difficulty for Prince Charles and Prince William is finding a meaningful purpose, as the Queen has many ongoing engagements as head of state.

Dr Dunlop explained: “What does a king and a king son in waiting do? What is the Crown Prince?  It’s easier to be in the big job because you’re doing your red boxes, you are the titular head of the nation. 

“So you don’t fall into bear traps, you know, you didn’t start off about architecture or something, you know, like, what are they allowed to do? 

“It’s very difficult, I think if you’re the actual head of it all, and you’re just silently you know, symbolically and silently, you know, performing, you’re being the embodiment of the institution, but for those who are waiting their turn, I think that’s a big challenge and we all live a very long time now,” she finished.

However, despite not being a reigning king, Prince Charles has been keeping extremely busy— particularly when it comes to his decades-long fight for the planet. 

A couple of weeks ago he and Camilla attended the COP26 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, alongside Prince William and Kate Middleton, both 39.

Prince William headed to the meeting of world leaders in Scotland fresh off his inaugural Earthshot Prize ceremony on October 17.

“The urgency of the [climate crisis] can’t be overstated, but through the Earthshot Prize, I want to show people across the world why there is reason to be hopeful,” he told People magazine.

“Seeing the incredible solutions that have been developed by the first winners of the Prize — and all of our finalists — shows us that the answers are out there,” Prince William shared.

“By recognising these efforts and supporting and scaling them to be the best they can be, we can inspire the confidence that a healthier, more sustainable future is within our grasp.”

The two future kings and their wives were initially supposed to be joined by the Queen, 95, but Buckingham Palace announced that she was advised by doctors not to attend the environmental summit.

“Following advice to rest, the Queen has been undertaking light duties at Windsor Castle.

“Her Majesty has regretfully decided that she will no longer travel to Glasgow to attend the Evening Reception of COP26 on Monday, 1st November,” read the statement. 

The statement continued: “Her Majesty is disappointed not to attend the Reception but will deliver an address to the assembled delegates via a recorded video message.”

The Queen had tests performed during her first overnight stay at the private King Edward VII’s Hospital in London in eight years, after she dramatically cancelled a two-day trip to Northern Ireland. 

Aides insisted the tests were purely “precautionary”. She has since returned to work at Windsor Castle.

The Queen officially marked her return to performing the royal duties with an in-person meeting with General Sir Nick Carter at Windsor Castle last week. 

Royally Us host Christina Garibaldi suggested Her Majesty now prefers doing “light desk-based duties” that suit her “liking”  since she has been advised by doctors to rest. 

Younger members of the Royal Family have significantly stepped up to aid with royal duties as the Queen fully recovers.

Ms Garibaldi discussed the Queen’s agenda with co-host Christine Ross about the Queen: “I feel like this is what she enjoys like she said she was going to serve until she dies and that’s what she plans on doing.”
