PRINCE Harry and the Duke of York are stripped of their key roles while King Charles plans a major reorganization.
The king is considering changing the law so that councilors are only working members of the royal family, the Telegraph reports.
Currently, under the Regency Act 1937, a monarch’s spouse and the four adults next in line to the throne can be appointed to official affairs as advisers to the state.
That now includes Prince Harry, Prince Andrew and Princess Beatrice, who are not working members of the royal family.
The king is understood to want to change the current status so that others can step in should the sovereign be abroad or unable to work.
According to reports, the Earl of Wessex and the Princess Royal could be contenders to take on the role in the King’s absence.
The move is claimed to be part of a broader restructuring of the duties of working and non-working royals.
It is believed that King Charles wants to take the appropriate steps to change the law as soon as possible.
Changes to the legislation would have to be enacted by the Houses of Parliament.
When Queen Elizabeth reigned, the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge, the Duke of Sussex and the Duke of York took on the roles.
The Sun has reached out to Buckingham Palace for comment.
Charles had an audience with Liz Truss before a reception for world leaders today.
His Majesty shared a laugh with the Prime Minister after shaking his hand and curtseying this afternoon.
It is Mrs Truss’ third audience with the king since he became monarch earlier this month.

Recently, new details emerged of how Charles was told in a phone call that his mother was dying before “all went quiet,” according to a royal commentator.
The new monarch and Queen Consort Camilla were at Dumfries House in Scotland when an aide ran down the corridor to find them, it is reported.
Camilla was about to tape an interview with former US President George Bush’s daughter when Charles frantically handed over the phone, according to Jack Royston, Newsweek’s chief correspondent.
He was told the Queen’s health was failing, prompting the couple to rush to Balmoral at the last minute.
Royal commentator Royston told True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat: “Charles and Camilla were at Dumfries House.
“Camilla was actually about to tape an interview with Jenna Bush Hager, who said she heard footsteps in the hallway.”
