Prince William to play King if the Queen goes under quarantine?



Experts have claimed that Prince William could soon take a more senior role in the Royal Family during the coronavirus pandemic. That is if the Queen and Prince Charles go into isolation, according to the Daily Mail.
Earlier this week, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said people over the age of 70 will be told to self-isolate, even if they do not have symptoms. Since the Prince of Wales, 71, and Her Majesty, 93, are within this age group, as third-in-line to the throne the Duke of Cambridge may be required to provide a ‘physical presence’ of the monarchy.

It is also possible that Princess Beatrice, who is ninth-in-line to the throne, may be appointed as a Counselor of State during these uncertain times, while Prince Harry – who is officially no longer a working royal from March 31 – may also need to step in to provide assistance.
And Grant Harrold, who was a royal butler between 2004 and 2011, explained, “There has to be a physical presence to the monarchy, not just a virtual one. He’s third-in-line to the throne and in robust health like his brother, and COVID-19 is unlikely to be any serious threat for him or his wife or children. He will do a great job.”
