His Majesty King Charles III's British royal family is in need of a makeover and influx of new members.

"The royal family definitely needs a shake-up," publicist Haddy Folivi shared. "With King Charles somewhat limited in what he can do work-wise, there is only so much that Prince William and the Queen can do."

Harry and Meghan left the royal family in early 2020.

"So the royals will have to draw on the reserves and enlist some more working royals so us, the taxpayers, feel like we are getting our money's worth," the PR expert pleaded.

In citing the passage of the Elizabethan era and Charles III's wishes for a "slimmed-down monarchy," Folivi continued: "The Palace should be very strategic and opt for more younger members of the Firm, as we are still reeling from the loss of Prince Harry and Meghan. I think it's a good thing — more working royals mean they can spread the royal brand further and faster with people who have lived and breathed the institution their whole lives."

He concluded: "I think it can only be a good thing."

King Charles III asked Prince William to host a Buckingham Palace Garden Party, May 21, 2024.

This insight follows William, Prince of Wales' recently hosted Buckingham Palace Garden Party, which featured a slew of millennial generation royals such as Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and non-royal extended family members such as Zara and Mike Tindall.

Junior royal representation is on the rise as the British monarchy is having a "working royal crisis" in how several senior members, such as Kate, Princess of Wales, and sometimes His Majesty, are out of commission.

Due to less than a handful of monarchy members fulfilling engagements, royal expert Angela Levin told an outlet: "My own view is that he [the King] could have Zara, who is the daughter of Princess Anne, because she and her husband Mike, who comes also from an ordinary background but fits in beautifully with the royal family. He could do it very well."

King Charles, Prince William and Prince George, will guide the British monarchy throughout the 21st century.

One former palace insider shares a different view on why this shake-up is needed as Charles III approaches the end of his second year as monarch.

"The King and Queen are quintessential boomers, and although we still run the world in many ways, my generation is no longer exciting when it comes to something like royalty," they observed. "It's not His Majesty's fault, that is just the way the Crown works, and he was well into his 70s when he acceded. There are no senior Gen X royals, which means the millennials, led by the heir to the throne, are what's next, and people want them."

They concluded: "That is of course until Prince George and his generation are ready to take center stage."
