King Charles III plans to cut Harry, Andrew as royal stand-ins
The amendments could be introduced in parliament "within weeks," citing "royal insiders" who said it was a "logical step."
British King Charles III reportedly planned to expand the pool of royals authorized to act for him in his absence, effectively excluding non-working royals Prince Harry and the Duke of York.
Charles is expected to amend the "Regency Act" to include his brother Edward, the Earl of Wessex, and his sister Anne, Princess Royal, as per the Daily Telegraph and the BBC.
The Telegraph reported that the amendments could be introduced in parliament "within weeks," citing "royal insiders" who said it was a "logical step."
Buckingham Palace has not issued an official statement.
Currently, only Charles's wife Camilla, heir to the throne Prince William, Harry, Andrew, and his daughter Beatrice, who is not even a working royal, are on the list of royals who can temporarily take over on the 73-year-old monarch's behalf if he is away or ill.
A longer list would allow the Palace to avoid directly excluding Harry, who has retired as a working royal and lives in the United States, and Andrew, who has retired from public life due to his friendship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and allegations of sex with a minor.
