Royal help is on the way for King Charles III as both Zara Tindall and Princess Beatrice add royal events to their summer plans. The "junior royals" do not officially work for the Crown in senior, frontline roles, but do occasionally make public appearances as members of the royal family.

"They've attended royal engagements in the past, sometimes 'in attendance' with the late Queen, for example, so they might appear at other events over the summer as members of the King's family," royal expert Emily Nash told an outlet.

Princess Eugenie, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, Lady Louise Windsor and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, also frequently step out on royal duties to represent Charles III.

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."

"They're very popular, they're very nice, they're jolly, they're honorable, [and] they're loyal to all the royal family. So he could do that," she added. "I think he's trying to save the country money, but it might not be worthwhile. My heart sank when I heard that he was going to hospital. Because the thought of having Harry sort of sign papers and make decisions is too much, it's too much for anyone. It was just too much."

If reports are to be believed, the monarch is "mulling over" what junior royals to bring into the fold, or rather to just let the Crown float in quiet limbo until both he and Catherine are fully recovered.

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

Other analysts feel that no junior royals are going to be invited into the "working" fold by the King. "It is difficult to see major roles for Prince Andrew's daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie. That is not because they are not willing, they are nice people and good ambassadors for this country," royal commentator Michael Cole shared. "He [King Charles] wants to concentrate on the direct line of succession, from him to Prince William and then Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis."

Cole concluded: "That is how he wants it. But the King deliberately wants to concentrate on the main line of succession."
