Kate Middleton and Princess Anne are expected to take on more responsibilities next year following Prince Andrew’s resignation.

While speaking on “HeirPod” royal experts Omid Scobie and Victoria Arbiter said that 2020 will be very busy for all the members of the royal family.

Scobie said that the first and second quarters of 2020 will focus mostly on the Early Years development project that the Duchess of Cambridge has been involved in.

“I think it is needed as the Queen steps back from her duties we are seeing the younger royals having to step forward and put in a lot more work,” he said.

Arbiter added that Middleton was quite fortunate to have her three children when she did because this meant that she was able to be very hands-on with them before her schedule becomes busier. But as the Duchess of Cambridge is preparing for her role as Queen, she needs to also offer more support for Her Majesty.

“I think 2020 is going to get a lot busier for all of them. Of course, with Prince Andrew out of the mix now people are talking about how Princess Anne is going to have to step up and support her mother so much more,” Arbiter said.

The royal expert went on to say that 2020 will be all about adjustments and changes while adapting to the fact that the Queen is already getting older. However, this doesn’t mean that she will soon be retiring.

A statement from Clarence House denied the rumors that the Queen will be retiring at the age of 95. During this time, she will appoint her son, Prince Charles, as Regent.

“There are no plans for any change in arrangements at the age of 95 – or any other age,” a spokesperson told USA Today.

During her coronation decades ago, the Queen said that she will serve the nation until the day she dies.
