The survival of the British monarchy will depend on the charm and charisma of the new and young royals after the death of Her Majesty.
The monarchy is set to change when Queen Elizabeth’s long reign will come to an end.
However, its survival will lie in the hands of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan.
The ‘Fab Four’ have already brought under the spotlight, all the new topics and interests.
Some of them include, mental health and female empowerment. The way they will stay in touch with the modern world will determine the future of the Crown.
According to Mr Powell, the author of King Edward VIII: An American Life:-
“William, Kate, Harry and Meghan will dominate the centre stage for the House of Windsor for years to come. And the survival of the British monarchy will depend on their charm and charisma indeed”.

“It is exciting to see this new generation of royals developing their own agenda for the modern world”.
They have started with the most important issues.
William and Harry have been particularly vocal over the importance of raising awareness on mental health. They have opened up on the long-lasting impact the death of their mother, Diana, had on them.
And Meghan, announced just months after her engagement to Harry, that she wanted to hit the ground running and work on issues she deemed important, including gender equality.
But Mr Powell pointed out changes within the monarchy are already taking place.
He said: “Charles is known to favour a more ‘slimline’ monarchy. He is focused on his immediate family group, William and Harry and their families”.
Prince Charles’ interests in current affairs drew accusations of meddling with politics. Despite the fact, that the royals are asked to not enter the political debate.
However, Charles had reassured he bears in mind the difference between being a Prince of Wales and a King. During a documentary celebrating his 70th birthday, he said:-
“I’m not that stupid. You can’t be the same as the sovereign if you’re the Prince of Wales or the heir. But the idea somehow that I’m going to go on in exactly the same way if I have to succeed, is complete nonsense because the two situations are completely different”.
