PRINCE Charles will axe several royals after the Queen’s death as part of his plan to streamline the Monarchy, it is claimed.
While the future king is understood to have long favoured a slimmed-down Royal Family, his exact plans have never been publicly disclosed.
One thing is for sure – the days of second and third cousins of the monarch living opulent lives off taxpayer money are already long gone thanks to diligent royal restructuring work the Queen carried out during her reign.
But Charles is said to be plotting to take that to its logical next step, as thanks to the Queen having four children all of whom have large families themselves, the Royal Family actually grew considerably during her reign.
He now plans to cut it down to just six key members, casting those who don’t make the cut adrift according to friend of the royals Gyles Brandreth.
“I think that going forward we are going to see, we are going to go back to a much slimmed down [monarchy],” he told the Express.
