Sources suggest she instructed the younger royals to place more emphasis on their state duties, just days after Prince Philip announced he will be stepping down from the public eye in the autumn. The news comes just weeks after both princes spoke out about the struggle of coming to terms with the death of their mother, Princess Diana, as part of the Heads Together mental health campaign.   Speaking to the Sunday Times, a royal insider said: "As successful as that campaign was, it might be that soul-baring isn't what Buckingham Pal
