The behaviour of Prince Charles and Prince William during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee is a sign that the firm is 'transitioning' away from the Monarch due to her health issues, an expert has claimed.
The Queen has been dogged by health issues in recent months and missed several Jubilee events due to experiencing some discomfort.
The 96-year-old Queen has also suffered from mobility issues and has been seen using a golf buggy to make her way around the Chelsea Flower show last year.
Despite the packed Jubilee event schedule, the Queen was only seen twice from Buckingham Palace's balcony over the weekend.
Instead, it was Charles and William who led Trooping the Colour and attended the St Paul's Thanksgiving ceremony in her stead.
And speaking to the Daily Star, Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams said that the shift in power structures in the firm was becoming "increasingly evident".
He explained: "It’s been a brilliantly organised Platinum Jubilee celebration. What is increasingly evident is that Charles and William are working very closely in what, given the Queen’s age and mobility issues, is a form of transition.
"They have been ably supported by Camilla and Catherine. The 18 working members of the royal family who appeared on the iconic balcony of Buckingham Palace were symbolically so important, as they are linked to so many charities and institutions."

However, just because Her Majesty may be incapacitated by her body on occasions, Mr Fitzwilliams still believes we will see occasional glimpses of the monarch.
He continued: "The Queen is able to manage audiences and virtual meetings and occasional appearances as her health allows. The senior working members of the royal family have stepped up to support her superbly.
"This helps to prepare the public for Charles’s eventual accession to the throne. The popularity and scale of the celebrations is a tribute her unique and truly remarkable reign."
