There’s a high probability that Prince Charles will have a full power to reign soon. There have been many rumors that when Queen Elizabeth II turns 95, her son will take the lead. But he will not be King, as she does not intend to abdicate. Still, in case of the monarch’s death, Prince Charles will be the first in line to ascend.

A year before the divorce, the Princess of Wales questioned her husband’s suitability to reign. As a result, the prince convinced himself that his estranged wife and her best friend Sarah Ferguson plotted to replace him by announcing that Prince Andrew would be Regent.

Charles was also afraid that his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles would ruin his reputation and chances of succession. In their turn, the Duke and the Duchess of Cornwall planned to slur the princess as a hysteric and write a book sympathetic to Camilla.
