Lady Louise unlikely to be a working royal due to complaint | Royal | News

Lady Louise Windsor is unlikely to become a working royal due to a « common complaint », according to one royal expert.

The royal, 20, is currently a second year student at St Andrews University and has spend most of her life away from the royal spotlight – unlike many of her cousins.

With the King and the Princess of Wales both undergoing cancer treatment, many have speculated whether the younger generation of royals could step up to the plate and help out.

Speaking about the future of the Royal Family, royal expert Jennie bond said that it doubtful that Lady Louise will take on official duties – for one major reason.

She told OK!: « It’s clear that for the next 15 years or so (depending on when Prince George decides to take up, full-time royal duties), the working Royals are going to become extremely thin on the ground. But I’m doubtful that Lady Louise would ever become a full-time working royal, partly because I’m not sure she would want to, and also because The King and William know only too well that the monarchy has to be increasingly accountable to the taxpayer. »

She added: « The most common complaint about the Royal Family is that they cost too much.

« Extra working royals would mean extra staff, extra administration, extra security extra cost. And that is not the direction that either the King [Charles] or William want to take. »

Ms Bond added that Lady Louise will « follow a similar course » to her cousin, Zara Tindall.

The expert said: « Also, Louise is only 20, she is enjoying university life and she undoubtedly casts an eye at her cousin, Zara Tindall, and sees the independence and freedom and fun she has in her life as a much-loved member of the Royal Family, but not a working royal. I would bet that Louise will follow a similar course. »

Lady Louise is currently following in Prince William‘s footsteps, having joined St Andrews University in 2022.

The university was where the Prince and Princess of Wales struck up their friendship in the early 2000s – eventually leading to their romance.

Although spending a lot of time away from the spotlight, the 20-year-old has been seen at various royal events – such as the King’s Coronation last year.

In 2021, the Duchess of Edinburgh spoke to the BBC about being « protective » of her daughter but knowing she needs to « live her life ».

She said that her daughter doesn’t use social media and that she has the same worries any parent does for their kids.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, Sophie said: « I would hope that she can go on with her studies, which I think she probably will want to do, and I hope that she and her friends will protect her from anything that somebody might want to do.

« But I have to let her live her life. It’s not mine to live. I can only equip her the best that I can, and then she has to make her own choices. But I hope for the next few years, at least, she will still be able to be as private as she wants to be. »
