    Former royal butler Grant Harrold continued to say: "He wants to follow the tradition of the Monarchy which means when the time comes, I hope its many many years away when the Queen is no longer with us, then he would then take on and I think in a way it’s also being inside and witnessing how difficult it can be the schedule, the job as such.

    Princess Eugenie & Zara Tindall's 'two for one'

    A royal expert has claimed that Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall may have set a precedent with the joint christening of their children.

    Robert Jobson suggested that the joint christening, which was held on Sunday, may have occurred due to the Queen's health, as she has been unable to attend some engagements in recent weeks due to her health. 

    Speaking on Australian TV he said of the christening: "Well, it's never happened before, I suppose you get two for the price of one.

    "They try to get as much out for the Queen.

    "I suppose what it was, the Queen wouldn't want to pick a favourite grandchild so if they want the Queen to be there they'll have to just get on with it.

    "And put them together which makes total sense to be because her time is limited."

    'Harry disappearing from view'

    Royal expert Daniela Elser has suggested Meghan's name being announced before her husband's at a recent public engagement 'proves' that Meghan is now exclusively taking control.

    Coupled with the fact the Duchess is doing more and more without her husband, proves that what was once a "buy-one-get-one-free pairing" highlights this.

    In an article for Ms Elser said: “Having been unapologetically upfront about his feelings about the press and life in the spotlight, the thought of melting a tad into the background to focus on his career, family, and looking to the family’s now worldwide famous hens would be quite reasonable.

    “However, that doesn’t change the fact that Team Sussex appears to be morphing into Team Meghan.”

    She added: "Harry appears to be disappearing from view."

      Royal expert Neil Sean continued to say: “Who wants to add more stress by inviting two more difficult people around the Christmas table?

      “Where would [the Queen] host Christmas, back at Sandringham? Or would it be returning to Windsor again this year?
