After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's departure, Kate Middleton, the lovely Princess of Wales, may take on a senior royal role from King Charles.

The Royal Thames Yacht Club hopes she'll be a key player, possibly taking over from King Charles III as a royal patron.

Kate's passion for sailing and charity work make her a prime candidate, according to royal commentator Richard Eden.

After Prince Andrew's 2021 retirement, King Charles, 74, became patron, succeeding Lord Mountbatten and Prince Philip.

After leaving Spotify, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle aim to surprise the royal family with a Netflix movie, showing their "capacity to surprise."

The California-based couple reportedly bought rights to the romantic novel Meet Me At The Lake, possibly costing £3 million.

Kate, an avid sailor, joined Great Britain's sailing team last year for a friendly race against New Zealand, showing her potential for the role.

Richard Eden believes Kate could be an exemplary role model if she collaborates with the Royal Thames Yacht Club in Knightsbridge.

The royal family faces excitement and uncertainty with the potential shake-up in roles and unexpected moves from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
