Prince William and Kate Middleton want their Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis to have their own careers to "avoid history repeating itself", an expert has claimed.

While their older brother Prince George while one day be king, the royal couple are keen for his siblings to forge their own careers and "not be royal hangers-on".

Royal expert Camilla Tominey told The Telegraph's Royal Insight series that George "has his destiny planned out", but William and Kate are keen to ensure they "get the balance right" with their two youngest children.

Instead of working as full-time royals Charlotte and Louis may be encouraged to forge a career path like Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice.

Camilla said: [William and Kate] don't want history to repeat itself and Prince Louis seem like a royal hanger-on and go down the Duke of York path."

The royal expert added that heir to the throne Prince Charles's plans for a "slimmed down" monarchy will change what it means to be part of the royal family.

"In the next decade, everything is going to change. And in conjunction with the fact there are going to be fewer royals, is a recalibration of what it means to be a royal.

"It's probably a good idea for when Trooping the Colour happens, for us not to see such a vast array of royals on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

"It begs the question, who are all these people and what are they doing?"

Prince George, eight, is currently third in line to the throne behind dad William, 39, and granddad Charles, 72.
