George, Charlotte and Louis to feature ‘more prominently’ than other royals at Coronation

, , and their parents the Prince and Princess of Wales are expected to be featured “more prominently” than other members of the Royal Family during , according to a royal author. Commentator Katie Nicholl claimed in an adapted extract from her new book, the New Royals: Queen Elizabeth’s Legacy and the Future of the Crown, the event will likely “highlight” the line of succession to the throne.

An extract from her book published by Vanity Fair read: “As the world comes to terms with the death of Queen Elizabeth II, attention will soon turn to King Charles’s coronation, which is expected to take place in the spring or early summer.

“So what do we know of the plans, reportedly code-named Operation Golden Orb?

“Well, his coronation is expected to be shorter and less expensive than his mother’s, and the new king wants the public to witness the experience just as they did his accession.

“The ceremony will likely highlight the line of succession, with William, Kate, and their children featured more prominently than other members of the family.”

Putting the spotlight on those closer to the throne would be in line with Charles’s long-rumoured desire to streamline the British monarchy.

This plan, never confirmed by Clarence House, could see the Royal Family be transformed into a cheaper and more agile institution.

As a consequence, the number of working royals may be reduced.

An exclusive poll carried out by Savanta ComRes for the Daily Express between September 16 and 18 on 2,351 adults in the UK suggested , with 65 percent of those surveyed backing the plan against seven percent opposing the idea.

Following the death of the Queen and the accession to the throne of King Charles, the line of succession to the throne was readjusted.

Prince William became the heir to the throne and inherited the title of Duke of Cornwall.

His firstborn George also advanced closer to the throne, becoming second-in-line.

Moreover, Charles announced during his first speech as a sovereign he had created his first son Prince of Wales.

He said: “As my Heir, William now assumes the Scottish titles which have meant so much to me.

“He succeeds me as Duke of Cornwall and takes on the responsibilities for the Duchy of Cornwall which I have undertaken for more than five decades.

“Today, I am proud to create him Prince of Wales, Tywysog Cymru, the country whose title I have been so greatly privileged to bear during so much of my life and duty.

“With Catherine beside him, our new Prince and Princess of Wales will, I know, continue to inspire and lead our national conversations, helping to bring the marginal to the centre ground where vital help can be given.”

Another senior member of the Firm to be under the spotlight during the first coronation in Britain in seven decades will surely be Camilla, the new Queen Consort.

Camilla, who married Charles in 2005, is expected to be crowned beside her husband during the coronation.

The possible choice of the royal’s jewellery could create an unbreakable link between Camilla and Charles’s grandmother, the Queen Mother, Ms Nicholl said.

She wrote: “Camilla will reportedly wear the Queen Mother’s crown, made for King George VI’s coronation in 1937, with its bewitching central diamond, the 105.6-carat Koh-i-Nûr (meaning ‘mountain of light’ in Persian).

“In this way Charles will align his wife with his beloved grandmother, the last queen consort to be crowned in the UK, whose memory is still treasured by many Britons.”

While no official information has been provided regarding the upcoming coronation, sources have claimed the event will be smaller and cheaper than the one held in June 1953 for the Queen.

A source told the Daily Mirror earlier this week: “The King is very aware of the struggles felt by modern Britons so will see his wishes carried through that although his coronation ceremony should stay right and true to the long held traditions of the past, it should also be representative of a monarchy in a modern world.”

Similarly, The Telegraph reported the coronation of the new King “will be shorter, sooner, smaller, less expensive and more representative of different community groups and faiths”.
