Last few weeks there were many false reports of the royal family, one of which is particularly and logically incorrect. It was reported that Her Majesty the Queen decided to name grandson Prince William as a future King rather than her son who is the first in the line to the throne, Prince Charles.
It was said that the palace fears Prince Charles is “unfit to be king” and that “crafty Queen Elizabeth and vengeful princes William and Harry want to block him from ever becoming king.”
That couldn’t be further from the truth and there is evidence proving it wrong.
First, one logical statement that this report is completely false is the fact that the British law clearly says that the first in the line is always to get a crown and no one would succeed for their children or grandchildren to rule. The only time the child can rule in the name of the monarch is given by the rule of accession, which states that if the ruling monarch is incapable to rule, the next one in the line for the throne becomes “regent”. But under the Settlement Act of 1701, if there are any changes in succession, the Parliament will have to enact a new law. This means the throne goes to Prince Charles by law.
Second, the Queen is the biggest supporter of Prince Charles and she is willing to see him rule. Even though there were reports which state that “The Queen thinks Charles is going senile and is unfit to rule,” her message for his 70th birthday declines all the reports.
“I have seen Charles become… a great charitable leader, a dedicated and respected heir to the throne to stand comparison with any in history,” said the Queen in her speech on Prince’s 70th birthday party.
Talking about Charles becoming 70, in the documentary “Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70” his sons talked about their father with pride calling him “a hero with a big heart.” This completely pushes aside all the reports which claim Prince William and Prince Harry are unwilling to see their father as the King.
Prince Charles is worthy of being a king as he was the busiest royal last year attending 546 engagements, which is significantly bigger than Prince William’s engagement as he has visited only 117 events.
There is no doubt the Queen supports her son as she thinks he is a “respected heir to the throne to stand comparison with any in history.” Hopefully, we will able to see him one day on the throne.
