Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie were widely rumored to be attending 2024's Trooping the Colour, but were "shockingly snubbed" by King Charles III's courtiers with no invite. The York royals were joined in the snub list by their scandal-ridden father, Prince Andrew, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as well as no appearance from the popular Zara Tindall.

Lady Louise Windsor views flowers left by the public for the late Queen Elizabeth II outside Balmoral Castle, September 10, 2022.

Despite the roster of missing royals, Prince Edward and Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh's daughter, Lady Louise Windsor, was front and center for all to see at the pageantry-filled event.

But the notable omissions follow a report on King Charles III's British royal family that some feel is in need of a youthful makeover.

"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."

"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.

A long-running debate has suggested that Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie should become 'senior working royals.'

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 and Queen Camilla marked 19 years of marriage on April 9, 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."

One former palace insider shares a different view on why this shakeup 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.
