King Charles, William and Kate plan to discuss five important issues at the royal summit

1. The Commonwealth

Eager to foster closer ties with the Commonwealth, the King hopes to use Kate and William's “star qualities” to build relationships as he wishes to fulfill his late mother's wish of ensuring “the robustness and survival” of the institution . according to a source.

A senior official said of Charles: “[He] hopes to use the symbolism associated with his mother's legacy to extend his hand of friendship, which may become more difficult as the years go by.”

He also plans to visit Canada and Australia next year on behalf of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

2. Republicanism

Australia may question its position as a royal empire, but there are many in this country who have taken an anti-monarchical stance, and protests have erupted throughout the king's reign.

Prominent anti-royal campaign group Republic has targeted key events such as the coronation and conferment of the Scottish honors by the king in Edinburgh, with William and Kate's engagements sometimes resonating with protesters too.

3. Harry and Meghan

The company and the Sussexes remain estranged, particularly since the claims were made in Harry and Meghan's Netflix documentary series, Harry & Meghan and the Duke's Memoirs.

It was recently reported that peace talks between Charles and Harry could take place in London next month, albeit strictly behind closed doors.

While Harry and Meghan are reportedly moving away from producing royal content, there are fears that if their latest projects backfire they could “return to the mud fight,” a source shared The Telegraph.

4. Prince Andrew

Despite his invitation to join the family at Balmoral, the royals are still baffled over Andrew's public presence even though he is no longer a working royal.

Palace helpers told The times Charles doesn't want his brother to “come out of the freezer,” adding, “Andrew is more of a problem than Harry and Meghan in the long run. It feels like more things are coming out about Epstein, and there still are unexploded bombs lying there.

It seems unlikely that Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson will have to leave the Royal Lodge for the time being as the King has no official authority to remove him and Fergie is still recovering from breast cancer surgery.

5. Bigger royal workload

With the resignations of Harry, Meghan and Andrew, the number of working royals has dwindled and most of the remaining members are significantly older.

William and Kate and the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh are currently the only working members of the firm under the age of 70, which a royal expert says could impact their workload.

Katie Nicholl, royal editor of Vanity Fair, narrated The Royal Beat by True Royalty TV: “The current [working royals] You need to be realistic about how much you can take on, and you know that the thousands of patronages and engagements they have shared together that have always been made may be something that needs to be redeemed.

“When you look at the Prince of Wales and the model he has adopted, which is becoming very consolidating, you wonder if maybe there needs to be an element of that for the whole royal family as well.”
