King Charles has set his sights on the future for his first-born granddaughter, Princess Charlotte.

The monarch 74, has five grandchildren in total, which are the Prince and Princess of Wales’ children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, as well as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s two little ones, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.

To all his grandchildren, the monarch is referred to as “grandpa” and this summer, many family members were invited to Balmoral to spend the holidays with King Charles and Queen Camilla.

Although his eldest grandchild, Prince George, already has his future mapped out, as he is in line to be King in the future, King Charles also has a wish for his first born granddaughter.

Speaking to well-wishers on a visit to his model town, Poundbury, in Dorset, back in 2015, he told royal fans he was “thrilled” to have a granddaughter.

The then Prince of Wales also described the newly-born Princess Charlotte as “beautiful”. He added: “I am thrilled. I was hoping for a granddaughter – someone to look after me when I am very old.”

Currently, Charlotte’s official title is HRH Princess Charlotte of Wales, but it is believed she could be bestowed another title when she is older – Princess Royal.

The Mirror reports, this would be only when her father, Prince William, becomes King, as it is traditionally given to the eldest daughter of the monarch.

The current Princess Royal is the late Queen’s only daughter Princess Anne, who was given the title in 1987.

Royal expert and author of Prince Harry: The Inside Story, Duncan Larcombe, told TownandCountrymag.com: “The title of Princess Royal is traditionally bestowed on the eldest daughter of the monarch. It is a title that remains for life, so Princess Charlotte will have to wait at least until the death of the current Princess Royal.”

Former BBC royal correspondent, Jennie Bond, said in the modern era, the Princess could become a “working woman” instead.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, she said: “I think we will be in a very modern era when the time comes. I question whether Charlotte will want to be burdened with more titles. She might be a working woman by then. Things could change so much in the next generation.”

Ms Bond added: “The natural option it would seem to me is that she might become Princess Royal. That’s the much more traditional route that the eldest daughter becomes Princess Royal so if I was going to put money on it, it would probably be that. But I also think that she might just feel she wants to remain as just Princess Charlotte.

“We’ve got William and Catherine who quite often tell the public to call them by their first names, so maybe their daughter will follow suit. Perhaps Charlotte will not even use the princess title by the time she’s grown up and definitely won’t want to be burdened with more titles.”
