The National Enquirer recently published the story on how Queen Elizabeth II is “suffering from dementia” and she has plans for Prince William to be future King of England. They stated how the Queen is throwing “protocol out the window and… deciding to skip a generation and name her favorite grandson instead of her oldest son as the next monarch.” This all came to the National Enquirer from a “palace insider” who claims that Queen Elizabeth II has long felt “Charles lacked the fortitude to rule.” The insider further said how “William has strength and discipline to lead… The people like him and say he’s more genuine than his father ever was.”
The magazine further said how Kate Middleton will make an amazing queen due to her “compassion and composure,” and how “decisive Elizabeth has even gone as far as officially passing the crown to William in a secret ceremony.” They also stated how Queen Elizabeth II has “ordered [Prince Charles] to leave England and settle outside the U.K.” The “distraught” Prince of Wales is “taking the news very hard.”
GossipCop checked in for the story and came to some interesting conclusions. If the Queen was indeed suffering from dementia, how is that her Christmas message sounded quite sane? And regarding Prince Charles’ emotions over the fact that he will not be King of England, he was seen very happy in the public.
Furthermore, the Queen can’t decide to just ‘’skip a generation’’ and make Prince William the next King of England. The Settlement Act of 1701 says that the oldest heir is automatically next in line to the throne and any deviance would require Parliament to enact a law. On Prince Charles’ 70th birthday party, Queen Elizabeth called Prince Charles a “dedicated and respected heir to the throne to stand comparison with any in history.”
The Queen also expressed it was her “sincere wish that the Commonwealth… will decide that one day the Prince of Wales should carry on the important work started by my father in 1949,” in 2018.
