Queen Elizabeth II to Abdicate Next Year For Prince Charles

The Queen, 94, is England’s longest-ruling monarch and has been on the throne for 68 years.

Leading royal experts have claimed that Queen Elizabeth II will eventually step down next year and make room for Prince Charles. Some Britons believe that her abdication will be the beginning to end the monarchy in Britain, paving the way to realize the public’s desire for democracy and voting of choice for the head of state in the UK. The royal family has recently become very unpopular for their extravagant expenditure of taxpayers’ money on minor family issues while citizens have been bearing the brunt of the pandemic-led lockdowns.

The Queen, 94, is England’s longest-ruling monarch and has been on the throne for 68 years. Robert Jobson, a royal biographer, suggests that the Queen may transfer control to Prince Charles, her son, 71, in less than six months. Mr. Jobson wants the Queen to complete its landmark reign in 2021 at 95. On April 21, the Queen celebrated her birthday–a rare event marked by a Color Troop in June.

Speaking on The Royal Beat, Mr. Jobson said: “I still firmly believe when the Queen becomes 95, she will step down.”

On September 9, 2015, the Queen became Britain’s longest-serving monarch. She exceeded the reign of her grandmother, ‘Queen Victoria,’ who ruled for 63 years, seven months, and two days. Thus, since 2011, Charles has been the longest-serving successor to the throne, breaking his grandfather’s record, King Edward VII, 59 years, two months, and 13 days. 

Does Queen Elizabeth Desire to Abdicate The Throne?

In the same broadcast, Jack Royston, the royal specialist, concurred with the unresolved claims. Mr. Royston remarked that the Queen would not want to award the Prince of Wales the coveted honor, but emphasized that it would be significant provided that they have already granted her son new royal duties.

The Newsweek royal reporter said: “I think she won’t want to. But realistically, she will get to a point where she has handed over everything to Charles. Then, how do you look at your son in the eye and tell him he will not be King?”

As Princess Elizabeth, his mother, took the throne, on February 5, 1952, Prince of Wales was announced as heir when he was only three years old. Princess Elizabeth devoted her life to her eventual role as a monarch on her 21st birthday before becoming the reigning Queen.

She said: “I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong.”

This is not the first declaration that the Queen will abdicate the throne. Most assumed that after 50 years of her reign, the Queen would retire in 2002. On June 3, 2002, the Queen marked her golden jubilee but kept ruling the Britons. Just once in British history has a monarch relinquished the throne — the uncle of the Queen in 1936. King Edward VIII renounced his throne to marry Wallis Simpson, an American socialite, but he would not marry her because she was previously divorced.
