Prince William is said to be "taking charge" of the royals to support the Queen after she spent a night in hospital, according to a commentator.
Royal expert Natalie Oliveri spoke on the TODAY show about Willaim and Kate Middleton's return to London on Thursday (October 21) after coming back from a family holiday with their three children, George, Charlotte, and Louis.
Natalie said: "Now they had arrived on Thursday, the same day Queen Elizabeth was discharged from hospital in London so many people are seeing that as rushing back to be by the Queen's side."
The royal expert said although the Queen is believed to be alright, Prince William is "preparing to be King" by helping out with royal duties.
She continued: "So far, we aren't being told there is any cause for alarm but Prince William is one of the royals really stepping up, taking charge of these royal duties.
"He apparently is taking charge of the Balmoral and Sandringham estates in the Queen's absence, those were jobs that his grandfather Prince Philip would have done before his passing.
"So really William is preparing to be King one day, of course, after his father."
Queen Elizabeth II, who is 95 years old, was forced to miss church last Sunday (October 16) due to needing rest after her overnight hospital stay.
She is thought to be keen to get back to work as soon as possible and attend the Cop26 climate conference being held in Glasgow from October 31 to November 12.
According to royal insiders, Her Majesty is "knackered" after a punishing schedule of 19 engagements this month, having lunches with friends, and staying up late watching TV.
The Queen is also said to have given up her "lunchtime gin" due to her health scare.
