Queen’s ‘new firm’ of senior royals urged to ‘make up for lost time’ in New Year

The Queen has urged her "new-firm" of eight senior Royals to be "all hands on deck" and "make up for lost time" after the pandemic forced them to halt their official duties.

Her Majesty is understood to have given the go-ahead on the new group to attend events together as the Royal Family moves to reignite their operation.

It has been reported royal courtiers are “excited” to plan new-year events for the eight members with “all hands on deck” expected.

The group will, of course, consist of the Queen, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla.

Princess Anne, Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex, Sophie, will also be involved in the collective, it has been reported.

A source told the Mirror: "The family are united in exploring the possibilities in working with each other to highlight the causes dear to their hearts, helping each other and the country at the same time.

"They are working on opportunities for next year and beyond already. As soon as they are able it will be all hands on deck to make up for lost time.

"The Queen has often said they ‘need to be seen to be believed – this is coming from the very top."

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were of course not included in the line-up following their decision to step down as senior members of the Royal Family.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are instead working on their upcoming launch of Archewell, their charitable foundation.

Prince Andrew will not feature either after withdrawing from royal duties in 2019 following a "car crash" interview with the BBC's Emily Maitlis.
