In a bid to modernise the monarchy, Prince William will scrap the classic "never complain, never explain" policy and will instead run The Firm in "the Cambridge Way," sources say.

The 39-year-old has laid out a "blueprint" for his future as the king, and believes the royals must be "agile" to survive.

After monitoring the reaction to the heavily-criticised week-long trip royal tour of the Caribbean, William was allegedly keen to say his piece.

One source told the Daily Mail: "The prince believes that for him, the days of 'never complain' are over.

"He definitely won’t be speaking out regularly but believes if the monarchy has something to say, then it should say it."

The source said the Prince's decision to move forward isn't being "critical" of the Queen, but he is instead "looking ahead to how things will be in 40 years' time".

"He listens to people, he really does, and has got a very clear vision for the future," they said.

In a “reflection” of the trip, William said the tour had “brought into sharper focus questions about the past and future”.

Alongside his wife Kate Middleton, William attended some 30 engagements across Belize, Jamaica and Bahamas.

But the trip was mired in criticism, especially after a visit to Trench Town, Jamaica, the couple were pictured shaking hands of children held back by wire fences.

Afterwards, the couple were snapped in an Army Land Rover driven by a black chauffeur as they headed to salute military recruits. The Queen and Philip were driven in the same vehicle in 1994.

The insider said: “The Land Rover was forced upon William and Kate. Advisers knew it was going to be a problem but the general who ran the parade wanted to use it.”

An insider told The Sun: “William and Kate will modernise how they work. It’s a breath of fresh air.

“They were bruised by attacks that their Caribbean trip harked back to the colonial age.

"In the future they will rip up the rule-book and do things ‘The Cambridge Way’."

Buckingham Palace has been contacted for comment.
