King Charles has struck a deal with Prince William and Princess Kate over concerns that they were stealing his limelight, an expert has claimed.
Ever since Charles’ coronation five months ago, his reign has drawn comparisons with his later mother, Queen Elizabeth II, 96, reign of seven decades.
Now, he is concerned that the growing popularity of Kate and William would affect his reign.
The Prince and Princess of Wales, have stolen Charles’ limelight with the way they carried out their royal duties for over a year.
Royal columnist at The Daily Beast, Clive Irving, revealed, "There's a great deal of feeling that William understands the mood and the reality on the ground far more than Charles ever will."
As a result, Charles reached a compromise with his son and daughter-in-law to regain control.
Mr Irving commented: "They worked out a kind of accommodation of how much limelight each is going to be allowed, because Charles is always very jealous of other people stealing his limelight."
While the exact division of the limelight remains unknown, Irving suggested it may be around "maybe 40 percent (for the Waleses') and he keeps 60 percent. That seems to be the working arrangement."
It has been a difficult year for the Royal Family after passing of the Queen in September 2022, followed by Harry’s shocking allegations in docuseries Harry and Meghan and memoir Spare.
However, the Prince and Princess of Wales have fulfilled their royal duties, garnering praise for their courage.
US Weekly cited a source in their cover story that expressed admiration for the couple, “They’re the first to admit it’s been a tough year, but everyone agrees William and Kate have done a wonderful job staying strong in the face of such adversity.”
