The Prince of Wales will assume the traditional role of the Duke of Edinburgh as a royal consort.

Queen Elizabeth II is expected to hand over the role of her late husband, Prince Philip, to her son, Prince Charles.

The Sun reported that the Prince of Wales will assume the traditional role of the Duke of Edinburgh as royal consort, alongside the Queen during the State Opening of Parliament.

The late royals member, who died at the age of 99 earlier this month, took a step back in his royal duties after his retirement in 2016, so this will not be the first time the Duke of Cornwall has accompanied his mother to the inauguration of Parliament.

An informant informed The Sun that Charles is expected to take on “a more important and active role.”

“It is a clear sign that the Queen does not want the crown to skip a generation and that Prince Charles will begin to assume an even more important role in real life,” the source said.

“There will be a visible display of support for the Queen by older family members at future events, and the opening of Parliament is no exception,” they added.
