Who are the working royals in the British Royal Family?

"Working royals" are representatives of the monarch and appear on their behalf at official engagements.

This includes going on international tours, hosting state dinners, opening buildings and presenting gongs.

All their expenses – excluding those covered by the Government for things like travel and security – which were previously paid for by the Queen, using income from her private estate, the Duchy of Lancaster, will now be paid for the same way by King Charles.
