Princess Beatrice and Queen Consort Camilla Parker-Bowles have received a 'promotion' after King Charles III 's ascension to the throne. The pair are now Counsellors of State, which means they will be theoretically able to take over as head of state should the King ever become incapacitated. People given this title include the spouse of the Monarch and the next four people in line of succession over the age of 21. As members of His Majesty's Privy Council, they will also now be able to attend Privy Council meetings and sign some routine documents should they be required. They will join Prince William , Prince Harry and Prince Andrew as holders of the mostly ceremonial constitutional role.

What a rotten few weeks it's been for Prince Harry . First, there was his desperate attempt to be at his grandmother's bedside before she died, after wasting precious time trying to get Meghan on the plane to Balmoral. Then there was the way he learned of her death from his father — who had been trying urgently to contact him — just five minutes before it was announced to the world. (Whatever his faults, no one can deny that Harry was a loving and much-loved grandchild.) After that, we saw him frantically trying to delay the publication of his warts-and-all book about the supposedly horrid and racist Royal Family , perhaps fearing it may reflect badly on him and Meghan. Now comes the bombshell revelation that the Sussexes are trying to postpone the December release of their multi-million-pound Netflix docu-series until next year. The show which allegedly contains jibes against his father — now the King, of course — his step-mother Camilla and his alienated brother and … [Read more...] about PLATELL’S PEOPLE: What value do the Sussexes have if they can’t be nasty about the royals?

It was described as the King's first significant state event, and one of the largest gatherings of world leaders and global political figures that the palace has ever hosted.

Early this year Scandinavian Vogue featured an unusual male model on its cover, clad in a bold salmon pink jacket: Prince Nikolai of Denmark. It was another coup for the handsome eldest grandson of Queen Margrethe II , Europe's longest-serving monarch, who has been a frequent sight on the catwalk since his debut at London Fashion Week in 2018. In an accompanying article inside the magazine, Nikolai, now 23 and seventh in line to the throne, was praised by his interviewer for his lack of royal airs and graces and laid-back manner - a quality apparently appreciated by fellow students in Paris, where he was spending a term on secondment from his Danish business school. They "don't know and don't care" about my title, said the prince. "It's relaxing and soothing in a way. I can be even more myself." It turns out, however, that one person did care rather a lot about his title.
