King Charles is set to do as many engagements as possible this year but is likely to pull back on some commitments, according to a royal expert. Former BBC Royal Correspondent Jennie Bond revealed that the King and Queen Consort Camilla will “take a leaf out of the Queen’s book and step up their engagements”.
She told OK magazine that the King, well known for his passionate devotion to various causes when the Prince of Wales, would now increasingly pass his campaigning baton to his son Prince William.
The former BBC News presenter explained that this was because of the heavier workload he now faces as King, as opposed to his time as the Prince of Wales.
She said: “They will be working very hard as long as their health permits.
“With the larger workload, he won’t be able to concentrate on the causes he has so vehemently in the past, so I don’t think we’ll see him out campaigning for the environment.
“But when the opportunity arises, he will try to get his message across.
“I think he has handed that baton on to William now.
“2023 will continue for Charles and the Royal Family with getting on with the job.”
Mrs Bond added that the Camillia the Queen Consort was a “vital part” of the King’s ability to do his job.
