Kate and William want Princess Charlotte to ‘get a job’ and not work as royal

2 min read

Kate Middleton and Prince William are reportedly raising Princess Charlotte with the expectation that she won't become a working royal, but rather "get a job".

King Charles' plans to slim down the monarchy have long been known, even before he ascended the throne.

It will mean that fewer members of the Royal Family will become working royals who attend events on a day-to-day basis on behalf of the crown.

The most high-profile members of the Firm who aren't working royals are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after they sensationally stepped back from the role in 2020.

Writing in his Palace Confidential newsletter, the Daily Mail's diary editor Richard Eden claimed that Kate and Will want Charlotte to go down a different path as well.

He said: "From what I hear, the Prince and Princess of Wales want Charlotte, aged seven, to grow up with the expectation that she will get a job and not be a full-time royal."

He explained that Charlotte's father also shares Charles' views on a slimmed down monarchy.

Opposed to these plans, in his newsletter, Mr Eden said: "Personally, I would prefer to see a larger Royal Family."

He added that this will allow them to carry out "more official engagements" and meet "more members of the public."

He added: "If Charlotte is to get a job and not be an active member of 'The Firm', she needs to be ready to step into the breach, if needed."

As well as George and Charlotte, William and Kate also share a third child, and second son, Prince Louis.

The couple married in 2011, before welcoming George in July 2013.

This was followed by Princess Charlotte in May 2015 and Prince Louis in April 2018.
