Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-reigning British monarch. On 9 September 2015, she surpassed the reign of her great-great-grandmother Victoria and on 6 February 2017 she became the first British monarch to celebrate a sapphire jubilee, commemorating 65 years on the throne.
That also means her retiring days are coming, and it has been recently reported that the Queen has made the decision to pass the Crown to Prince William. William’s father, Prince Charles, has been avoided for the role altogether, as well as his wife Camilla. This has, apparently, caused quite the scuffle between the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and her mother-in-law Camilla Parker Bowles, who didn’t take the news very well.
According to sources close to Buckingham Palace, the Queen thinks that Prince William and Kate Middleton are more ‘ready’ for the throne than Prince Charles due to the numerous scandals he’s been involved in, including his affair with Camilla while still married to Princess Diana.
The Queen chose her grandson to be her successor because she thought he could take the throne into the modern age.
Camilla, however, disagrees with the decision and thinks it is Kate Middleton that is forcing this ‘arrangement’, pushing her out of the picture.
It has been reported that Palace Communications staff are being ordered to be up-to-date on the 1937 Regency Act that gives power to the heir. Also, it surfaced that the Queen recently had a mock coronation of Prince William and Kate Middleton, which started the rumors as to who was going to be next in line for the throne.
In the meantime, Bowles thinks they are trying to go over her husband’s head with all of this, reports Proud-Patriots. There are even speculations that this is some kind of revenge for Charles’ affair which hurt the throne in more ways than one, and they have never fully bounced back from it.
