The King in waiting will be carving out further definition to his public role early in the year. Yet the unease and uncertainty of 2020 continue as Neptune, the planet of chaos, can wrong-foot his best-laid plans. He is not able to direct things as he might wish – particularly regarding issues with his sons.
The Duchess of Cornwall
Camilla is aware that despite Covid-19, her public role is becoming increasingly demanding. She is having to be more centre stage when she prefers to maintain her privacy. This struggle continues on from last year, with events forcing her hand. Her place in The Firm is being re-defined by extra duties.
"William will re-evaluate his role and values in life," says Debbie
Although William is a Duke, he is not exempt from experiencing the astrological mid-life crisis which is part of the human condition. He will re-evaluate his role and values in life, eliminating what is no longer relevant. William will be displaying his passion, striking a chord with the public.
The Duchess of Cambridge
2021 looks set to be one of Kate's most demanding years yet as her Venus and Mercury are in the eye of a perfect celestial storm. This is likely to produce radical change to her pattern of life, requiring a whole re-organisation of the way she works. Close relationships require extra input too.

Harry is floating in a world cut off from the rigid protocols of his previous life.

He is going through a period of drifting this year as the initial excitement of letting go of old restrictions wears off.
The Duchess of Sussex
Meghan's 2021 continues her push to establish a huge role in the world. She will forge partnerships with organisations that give her a powerful platform, yet there are complications that filter through into her relationship with Harry. From May onwards her knack of surprising us all will come to the fore.
