After the Queen released a statement on Monday saying she supports “Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family” it his clear that the Sussexes’ workload will have to be taken on by other royals.
Princess Eugenie and her sister Beatrice have been named by some royal commentators as two of the members of the 'firm' who could step up and carry out engagements after Meghan and Harry’s exit.
Harry Mount, author of How England Made the English, believes Prince Andrew’s daughters could also take on them some of the workload of their father after he stepped down as a working royal in November.
The author wrote in an op-ed for the I: “Perhaps the only prominent Royals who could take up the slack in Andrew and Harry’s absence are Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.
“No one could blame them for their father’s appalling behaviour and no one could say there’s too much on their plate, workwise, at the moment.”
