In Wake of Prince Andrew Being Cutoff, Kate Middleton May Have to Bring Children into Royal Life Quicker Than She Planned
In the wake of Prince Andrew being stripped of his royal duties and titles, Kate Middleton may need to bring her children into royal life quicker than she and her husband Prince William had planned on.
According to Express Uk, Royal writer Daniela Elser has claimed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge “will likely suffer the most” due to the void that Andrew will be leaving behind after being stripped of his royal roles.

Many Vacancies Left by Andrews Absence from Royal Life
According to Ms. Elser, the Duke and Duchess’s children will be the ones who suffer most as they are thrust into royal life to fill roles once held by Prince Andrew. This comes after William and Kate have gone to “extraordinary lengths” to give their children a normal life – as normal as can be expected for the children of the second in line to the Throne of England.
Per Ms. Elser, since Andrew stepped down from his role as a working member of the Royal Family a number of his official roles have been left vacant, such as those of the English National Ballet and the Outward Bound Trust. Since the Queen’s defenestration of her son, there have been even more vacancies left to be filled.
Just to name a few, Colonel of the Grenadier Guards, Royal Colonel of the Royal Highland Fusiliers, and Royal Colonel of the Royal Regiment of Scotland are all royal posts that are now vacant.
Monarchy is Running out of Able Bodies
“It is into this breach that Kate, William, and later their children will be required to step,” the royal writer notes, adding that the monarchy is simply running out of able bodies to fill positions with and that means the kids will have to. “There is no way to get away from the fact.”
Per Daniela, the youngest in the Royal Family to hold positions, the Cambridges, are the only ones under 55, and the rest of the royal workforce is a quickly shrinking commodity. Those good intentions Prince William have for their children to live a normal life “could be about to brutally collide with the reality of the fact that the royal family is now chronically shorthanded.”
