| Updated:

In Royal Family news, a commentator claims that Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie will be shunned in a new “slimmed down” monarchy.

Appearing on Good Morning Britain, Dickie Arbiter said there would be “no place” for the two young princesses when it comes to accompanying the Queen on official Royal duties.

And Royal commentator Dickie thinks that this slimmed-down monarchy might exclude peripheral figures such as Beatrice and Eugenie when it comes to accompanying the Queen at appearances.

Asked what the changes would mean for the Queen, he said: “I’m not sure how much slimmer it can get.

“We’ve got the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, we’ve got the Cambridges, we’ve got the Wessexes so that’s what? Five?”

What else did Dickie say?

He continued: “I don’t know how much more you can slim it down.

“You can’t bring Beatrice and Eugenie into the equation as there just isn’t the money there.

“It is pretty slimmed down. It’s how they will, for want of a better word perform, how they are going to support the Queen over her last few years.

“She’s very used to going out on engagements on her own. She’s been doing it for 69 years. There’s no reason why she should stop now.

“Very occasionally, the royal family joins her if she wants them there.”

A source told The Telegraph: “The question is whether you start off by deciding how many patronages and engagements there should be, and then work out how many people are needed to achieve them…

“…Or whether you decide how many people there should be, which will dictate how many engagements and patronages they can take on.”
