This senior royal just spoke out about whether or not the monarchy has a future

With King Charles III's coronation just days away, the future of the monarchy has never been a greater topic of conversation, especially when factoring in the mixed results of a recent poll into the Royal Family's popularity.

Now, the Royal Family itself (or, at least, one member of it) has waded into the conversation, with Princess Anne sharing her thoughts – described as "refreshingly fluff-free" – on whether or not the monarchy has a future.

Speaking to CBS Canada, the Princess Royal opened up about the apparent decline in the Royal Family's popularity as well as what the future holds for the institution and for King Charles himself.

When asked about the Royal Family's "relevance", Anne said that this isn't a conversation she'd typically have but admitted that she understands why others might be. "I think it's perfectly true that it it is a moment where you need to have that discussion," she said.

Anne then went on to give her opinion on the family's relevancy, adding: "The monarchy provides, with the constitution, a degree of long term stability, that is actually quite hard to come by any other way."

Looking forward, Anne then commented on the kind of King her brother will be. "Well you know what you're getting, because he's been practicing for quite a bit," she joked, referencing the decades that Charles spent as Queen Elizabeth II's heir. "And I don't think he'll change. He is committed to his own level of service, that will remain true."
