In a recent turn of events, Prince Harry experienced a juxtaposition of fortune at the Living Legends of Aviation Awards. While being celebrated with an award, he concurrently faced a discreet removal from a significant royal position.

Prince Harry, who maintains the title of Counsellor of State, was subtly excluded from assuming royal responsibilities on behalf of King Charles or Prince William. This development surfaces amidst a health crisis in the British monarchy.

Sources close to the royal family disclosed to People Magazine that King Charles, recently diagnosed with an enlarged prostate, is slated for a corrective medical procedure. Despite this, assurances have been made regarding the King's capability to manage his constitutional duties during his health ordeal.

Royal Role Revisions

Intriguingly, The Times observed that not only Prince Harry, but also Prince Andrew, saw their eligibility as Counsellors of State quietly rescinded following Charles' ascension to the throne. Although retaining their titles, both Harry and Andrew have previously stepped back from active royal duties, rendering them unlikely candidates for such responsibilities.

The Royal Household confirmed that the new protocol, formalized in December 2022, mandates that only "working members of the Royal Family" will be called upon as Counsellors of State. This legislative change has also permanently appointed Princess Anne and Prince Edward as Counsellors of State for King Charles.

Amidst these royal adjustments, the Princess of Wales, Kate, underwent a scheduled abdominal surgery, with an anticipated recovery period of two weeks. Concurrently, it has been revealed that Prince William will be scaling back most of his engagements to provide support to his wife during her recuperation.

This delicate balancing act within the royal family highlights the evolving nature of royal duties and responsibilities, especially in times of personal and health challenges. The discreet reshuffling of roles underscores a new era in the British monarchy, one that navigates tradition and modernity amidst its ongoing transformations.
