Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William will be “stepping up at the same time” as Prince Charles, according to royal commentators. The future king and queen consort are expected to take on more work now that the number of working royals “is smaller than ever”. HeirPod host Omid Scobie explained what this could entail as he celebrated the couple’s 10th wedding anniversary.
He told listeners: “We’ll see William and Kate stepping up at the same time as Charles.
“They’ll take on more responsibilities as the pressure on the monarchy to prove itself and to survive the oncoming changes grows.
“The pool of acting working royals is smaller than ever.
“So this anniversary is, of course, a huge moment for William and Kate.”

Mr Scobie continued: “But it will have no doubt been celebrated in a very public way.
“Not just because we remember that day, April 29, 2011, where we all, wherever we were in the world, sat down to watch them get married.
“It was the first big royal wedding for many of this generation who weren’t alive or born during Charles and Diana’s wedding.
“But this is also a reminder that this is a couple that are stepping into two very big roles very soon.”
For their latest announcement, the Duke and Duchess have confirmed that they will be launching a YouTube channel.
Posts on their existing social media on Twitter and Instagram let fans know.
Their caption read: “Better late than never – we’re now on YouTube.”
A video was posted alongside it, showing clips from a series of previous engagements.
These included the Duchess’ Hold Still project and the couple attending a red carpet movie premiere.
