‘Might want to step back’ Princess Anne tipped for potential retirement in Charles’ reign


PRINCESS Anne could be tipped for potential retirement once Prince Charles ascends to the throne, a royal expert has claimed.

He added: “It’s possible that, but not certain, that there will be a role for her [Princess Anne] in the change of reign.

“[Although] she may want to take a back seat.”

In July, Anne was scheduled to make an impressive 36 royal visits, which averaged more than one visit per day.

In response to Anne’s schedule, a spokesperson at AskGamblers said: “The Princess Royal has a reputation for being exceptionally hard working and summertime is no exception.”

They added that Anne’s “busy calendar” saw her work “the same [time] as any full-time employee in the UK”.

The Queen’s only daughter currently is 17th in the line of succession to the throne.

Following the birth of her two children, Peter and Zara, Anne decided against the Queen bestowing them with royal titles.

This would allow them to choose their own careers and build lives away from the spotlight.

Last week, Princess Anne carried out royal duties in Edinburgh.
