Princesses Beatrice and Eugene are very likely to fill the vacuum left behind by Harry and Meghan's exit from the royal household, a source recently revealed.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's exit from the royal family has drawn a lot of controversies as there have been debates regarding what brought it on and if it's a permanent move.

Now it seems, there will be no going back as a source recently revealed that the spot the couple occupied would soon be filled by Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

The source has been identified as Robert Lacey, the royal biographer, and in his interview with Hello Magazine, he had this to say:

"It's quite clear that one of the consequences is that Beatrice and Eugenie will now be brought forward – if they're willing to be brought forward."

According to Robert, the vacuum left behind by Harry and Meghan's exit has to be filled. Since two royals left at once, then two have to step up to take their place.

However, he also stated that should both Princesses refuse to step up, the vacuum will be left vacant as there's more than a whole decade to countdown before Prince George's generation can step up.

Last year, the Queen extended an exclusive invitation to Mozzi to join his fiance at her estate in Norfolk.

At the moment, it's unclear if the Princesses will be stepping up since they both have regular full-time jobs, which they juggle along with their royal duties.

Princess Beatrice's marriage is also slated to come up sometime this year as she got engaged to multi-billionaire, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, earlier in September 2019.

Edoardo Mozzi reportedly popped the question while the couple had been on vacation in Italy, however, unlike the previous royal weddings, Beatrice's upcoming wedding ceremony will be on a much less grand scale.

The engagement ceremony held in London in December, and it was attended by several family friends, the bride-to-be's mother, Sarah Ferguson, and sister Eugenie.

Last year, the Queen of England extended an exclusive invitation to Mozzi to join his fiance at her estate in Norfolk.

The noble gesture was one that communicated solidarity among the royals as the scandal involving Beatrice's father had somewhat dampened the festive mood she should have been in.

The invite has also been reported to be the Queen's way of showing she's been keeping up with the times as she would previously have never given an unmarried couple residence under the same roof as her.
