The King's nieces do not currently carry out royal duties

Princess Eugenie, Zara Tindall and Princess Beatrice represented a "more fun generation of royals" as Prince William's reign looms, according to a royal commentator.

King Charles's nieces attended a Buckingham Palace garden party earlier this week alongside their cousin, the Prince of Wales, 41.

Royal fans were delighted to see Zara, 43, Beatrice, 35, and Eugenie, 34, support Prince William at the garden party, particularly as Princess Kate is currently receiving cancer treatment.

Jennie Bond, a royal commentator, suggested that the presence of William's cousins made the Royal Family look more "joyful".

She claimed: “I thought it was joyful to see this new generation of royals step up to help William at one of the traditional engagements of the year.

“What a shame it was raining, but I think their guests would have been genuinely thrilled to meet this younger, less formal and, let’s face it, more fun generation of royals."

Bond also added that with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle living in the US, Prince William will need the support of his cousins when he is King.

She continued to tell OK!: “I think it gave us a glimpse of the future: when William becomes King.

"He may not have his brother at his side, but he will have a band of loyal and close relatives to help him represent the monarchy.

"I’m sure that, whenever they can, they will step up to help William when the burden of Kingship finally falls on his shoulders.”

Princess Eugenie took to Instagram to share her delight at joining the Prince of Wales, her sister and Zara Tindall at the garden party.

She wrote: "Come rain or shine, I was delighted to support my family yesterday to meet some special individuals at the Buckingham Palace Garden Party who have gone above and beyond to support their local communities and the country."

On Thursday, Downing Street announced there would be a snap election on July 4, meaning the Royal Family has postponed upcoming engagements.

A statement from Buckingham Palace read: "Following the Prime Minister's statement this afternoon calling a general election, the Royal Family will – in accordance with normal procedure – postpone engagements that may appear to divert attention or distract from the election campaign.

"Their Majesties send their sincere apologies to any of those who may be affected as a result."
