I have never seen any suggestion that Charles intends on reducing the costs of the royal family. He would need to ask the parliament to reduce the size of the Sovereign Grant for that to happen and that hasn't been suggested. All that has been suggested is that there will be a smaller royal family.
I would like them to do the following:
1. Restrict HRH Prince/Princess to the children of the heir apparent only in each generation but allow those who have held and used HRH since birth to keep it ... so no stripping of the Yorks but no HRH for the Wessex or Sussex children or for Louis' going forward.
2. Limit working royals to the heir apparent and spouse in each generation and make it clear that the younger siblings have to earn their own money so Charlotte and Louis won't have the same issues as Harry, Andrew and Margaret before them of not seeing a real purpose in life other than to shake hands and open things.
3. Ask the parliament to reduce the Sovereign Grant from 15% of the Crown Estate to 5%.
4. Open BP permanently to the public and not have it as the home of the monarch at all. Make it a museum. Limit the homes of the Crown Estate used by the royal family to KP, CH and Windsor. All the others to be returned, when the current leases expire, to the Crown Estate to be turned into museums and open to the public.
hoping louise doesn't become a working royal so she can have a life. also hoping that she flies the coop and spreads her wings away from the brf for college, etc. i like her a lot, but her outfit in that special was awful! she looked like an old lady. how sophie could let her dress like that is beyond me. she is too sheltered and i'm in fear it's going to stunt her growth as a person and woman. she's needs to get from under the brf and go to school outside of the uk.
also, can she do something with her hair? i mean condition it or something. it always looks wild. just don't understand it w/ their money. she needs to get some cool, good girlfriends who can show her how to dress, and take care of her hair. it's embarassing to see a royal her age looking the way she does.
She is going to a very expensive girls' school and so would probably have many girl friends.
She won't be going to school outside the UK as she is already in her final year of school now. When she finishes school next June she will possibly take a gap year, like all her cousins, or go straight to university somewhere in the UK, depending on her final A levels and interests. I wouldn't be surprised if she didn't go to somewhere like Exeter like Zara and study something to do with horses (Zara did equestrian physiotherapy for instance). Of course her interests may be more city based and so she may go into Art History, like Eugenie or something else.
I think she is simply a girl who likes the more conservative old-fashioned type of clothes rather than the let's show off everything we have type that so many young girls wear these days.
