Queen Elizabeth II retirement has been in the news lately following her absence from some royal events because of her frail health. The Queen has just turned 90 on her last birthday. She currently has a lot of queenly duties to date. After all, she is the head of almost 100 organizations. Her Majesty is reportedly retiring this year.
The Queen has been delegating her royal duties to the younger members of the royal family. Last year, Kate Middleton received the responsibility to oversee the NSPCC, Save the Children, NSPCC, and Barnardo’s. They also assigned her to become the patroness of Wimbledon, according to Newsweek. The Queen has been handling this duty for decades. Prince Harry got the task to head the England’s rugby leadership, RFU while Prince William worked in the Wales’ WRU.
Queen Elizabeth II Retirement Paves Way for Prince William, Kate Middleton to Do More Royal Duties
According to Marie Claire, the 34-year-old British prince will quit his work as a life saver. Prince William has been working for the air ambulance helicopter at East Anglian Air Ambulance as a pilot. His two-year stint for them is the job he loves the most.
According to him, his experiences as a life-saving pilot will always be in his heart. Besides, he believes that he can use those experiences in the future as he sits as king. Last month, Kate Middleton stayed at the Kensington Palace because Prince George will start his preparatory school. This means that the family will be intact as the Duke of Cambridge will stay in the palace most of the time.
A statement from Kensington Palace confirms that the other members of the royal family will have additional duties to perform. “The Royal Highnesses are keen to increase their official work on behalf of the Queen and for the charities and causes they support, which will require greater time spent in London,” the statement says.
Queen Elizabeth’s leadership will be spread out to her family members. This time, they decided on it in order to prepare for the transition as she steps down from the throne. Prince William and Kate Middleton will also defer the arrival of their third child as they become busier this year.
