Prince Charles Will Allegedly Give These 9 Royals The Center Stage During His Reign

Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-reigning British monarch. At the same time, her son, Prine Charles, is the longest Prince of Wales. He was only a child when he started preparing for his role as the future king. The Prince of Wales has spent most of his life supporting the Queen.

When Prince Charles reigns, he wants to keep the members of the monarchy to a minimum. Here are the nine royals who will be serving with the heir apparent, according to Express.

Prince Charles will rely on his wife and kids for his reign. So, Camilla Parker Bowles will surely be among the few who will make the cut.
