Prince Charles to step into Philips role by Queens side – Page Six

The Queen will have a prince at her side during the State Opening of Parliament — her son, Charles.

Prince Charles will formally step into his father’s traditional role as royal consort after the death of his father, Prince Philip, at age 99 earlier this month, according to The Sun.

Philip retired from public duties in 2016, so this won’t be the first time Charles accompanies Queen Elizabeth to the opening of Parliament.

But now Charles is expected to take “a more significant and active role,” a source told the outlet.

The opening of Parliament will take place May 11.

“It is a clear signal that the Queen does not want the crown to skip a generation and that Prince Charles will start ­taking on an even bigger role in royal life,” the source said.

A source added: “There will be a visible show of support for the Queen from senior members of the family at future events, and the opening of Parliament is no exception.
