It’s almost time for Prince Charles to take over.
That’s what a new book claims.
According to the Mirror, if Queen Elizabeth reaches 95, she plans to make her son Prince Regent.
She will continue to fulfill her oath to the people, while making sure the country has a monarch who is still able to carry out duties.
The claims are being made in royal correspondent Robert Jobson’s new book, Charles at 70: Thoughts, Hopes, and Dreams.
The Regency Act hasn’t been invoked since 1810, during George III’s reign.
This pretty much means he will be king in every sense except name.
And don’t forget second wife Camilla. She will be queen.
According to the Express, their wedding statement read it was “intended that Mrs. Parker Bowles should use the title HRH The Princess Consort when the Prince of Wales accedes to the throne.”
Charles has already started working like a king: he reportedly works 14 hour days and carries out more than 600 engagements every year.
