PRINCE CHARLES will have to give up sharing opinions that are deemed too political when he becomes King, according to a royal commentator.
Royal expert Dickie Arbiter told ITV’s documentary Inside the Crown: Secrets of the Royals, that when Prince Charles becomes King he will have to “constitutionally keep his mouth shut”. Mr Arbiter stated that this is because the monarch should not be seen getting involved with politics.
Mr Arbiter said: “He has written letters to Ministers asking the sort of question that we would want an answer to.
“He won’t be able to do that when he becomes King.
“When he becomes King constitutionally, he will have to keep his mouth shut.”
Royal expert Penny Junor added: “Prince Charles will be King, and he will be the best-prepared monarch that this country has ever had.”

Last week the Duchess of Cornwall was praised for the way she adapted during her marriage to Prince Charles.
During the Channel 5 documentary ‘Charles and Camilla: King and Queen in waiting’, royal experts Kate Nicholl and Angela Levin discussed the Duchess of Cornwall’s growth as a member of the Royal Family.
Ms Levin stated that Camilla had to learn to work very hard at the age of 60 in order to keep up with Prince Charles.
Ms Nicholl said: “Once she had married into the Royal Family she became Charles consort.
“She was there with him on royal engagements, she accompanied him on royal tours and actually Camilla proved to be incredibly popular.
“She did her own PR, she didn’t need a spin doctor, she did what she does best.
“She engages with people, she has a good relationship with the press.
“She doesn’t upstage the Prince of Wales in any way, they are a great team.”
