These recent changes in the palace are being interpreted by many as an 'job-share' of the monarchy as the Queen grows old.
Charles will stand in for his at some of the day's major engagements, further signs that he is increasingly taking on the role as monarch.
Royal aides are expected to make the announcement this week, revealing that the Prince's media team has been merged with that of the Queen.
The Queen has made 261 official visits during her 62-year-reign.
She turns 88-years old in April and has steadily been passing responsibilities to younger members of the royal including Prince Charles and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
