Queen Camilla is set to step up for royal engagements along with other royals down the line of succession pecking order.
GB News’s Cameron Walker provided a summary of the situation after both King Charles and Princess Kate suffered health scares.
The Princess was admitted to hospital on Tuesday for a successful, planned procedure but is expected to stay in the private London clinic for 10-14 days.
The King is preparing for a corrective procedure after being diagnosed with a benign enlarged prostate.
Walker detailed the procedures the Royal Family will have in place as a result.
“We’re not going to be seeing the Princess of Wales until Easter”, he said.
“The Queen, as we understand, it’s going to be keep calm and carry on, as are the less senior members of the Royal Family.
“As to whether the King needs counsellors of state to deputise on his behalf, my understanding is, that’s not the case.
“Although we’re not going to be seeing the King in public following his hospital treatment next week for a bit of time, from my understanding he is still going to be well enough to carry out those red Government box duties which he has.
“Signing off bits of official statements and reading Government notes as well.
Cameron Walker gave analysis on what the situation means for the royal household
“There is still work going to be going on behind the scenes, but as for public engagements, they are very much going to be left to the Queen and the less senior members of the Royal Family.”
The King is staying at Birkhall in Aberdeenshire with the Queen but the Palace has not confirmed whether he will be treated in London or Scotland.
He is said to be in touch with the Waleses, with a source describing them as a “close family”.
The nature of the princess’s condition has not been revealed although Kensington Palace confirmed it was not cancerous.
It is serious enough, however, for heir to the throne William to be postponing official duties while his wife is in hospital and in the immediate aftermath while she recuperates, devoting his time to his family.
The princess is not expected to return to public duties until after Easter based on current medical advice, Kensington Palace said.
William was looking after George, 10, Charlotte, 8, and five-year-old Louis on Wednesday evening.
The royal youngsters were at school all day and are yet to visit their mother in hospital.
