King Charles has been warned against bringing in “remote members” of the Royal Family like Zara Tindall and Princess Eugenie amid “leak” concerns by a royal author.
Angela Levin joined Jacob Rees-Mogg to discuss health issues that have plagued the royal household in recent days.
The King is set to undergo treatment for an enlarged prostate, while Princess Kate’s stay in hospital has passed the one-week mark as she continues to recover from abdominal surgery.
Prince William has also stepped back to assist Kate as she recovers.

With the pair stepping back from royal duties in response, Levin weighed up the prospect of fringe figures stepping up to take on more responsibilities in the short term.
With Charles running a slimmed-down operation, the monarchy appears bare without three of its key figures, but Levin is concerned that “leaks” could emerge with less established individuals entering the fray.

Asked about the possibility of “remote members” of the Royal Family helping, Levin said: “I think it’s something that is okay in theory but in practice is quite hard.
“Can you trust people not to say too many things to the people in America [Meghan and Harry].
“They have to be very careful because they don’t want anything leaked that will cause any more problems.”
Assessing the “problems” posed by the slimmed-down monarchy, Levin spoke on the possibility of the likes of Beatrice and Eugenie being “friendly” with Prince Harry.
“If they are still friendly with Harry, it’s a problem”, she said.
“They could do the work, but could they keep absolutely quiet?”
Harry’s Royal Family relations appear to be at an all-time low after a series of controversies involving him and his wife, Meghan Markle, last year.
His memoir, Spare, was released in January to much acclaim as it became the fastest-selling nonfiction book of all time.
The book was filled with staggering claims about royal life, with Harry even criticising William and Kate.
The King has cancelled engagements and been ordered to rest as a result of his condition, while Kate is not expected to return to royal duties until after Easter.
