King Charles's introduced slimmed-down monarchy when he began his reign

A royal expert has said that King Charles "doesn't want to burden taxpayers" and is staying stubborn on his slimmed-down monarchy idea despite health problems.

King Charles and the Princess of Wales have both been diagnosed with cancer this year, meaning that other members of the Royal Family have been forced to step up.

Speaking to GB News Ingrid Seward said: "I think he would totally agree with the slimmed down monarchy, and I think he would be very proud of his son.

"He wasn't always proud of his son. He was a very tough father and they didn't get along in the early years."Obviously they did later, but I think he would be really proud of the way that Charles has sort of immediately implemented what he said he was going to do.

"He said he wanted a slimmed-down monarchy, and that's what he's organised. That's what he's now got.

"It is a little bit to slim down at the moment perhaps, but he's coping. He just doesn't want the burden of too many royals upon the British taxpayer."
