Queen Elizabeth Will Give Prince Charles A New Powerful Title As It's “Unlikely” She Will Abdicate The Throne, Claims Royal Expert

For as long as we can remember, Queen Elizabeth II has ruled Great Britain. However, with the monarch in her old years, many can't help but wonder who will take over from her.

Well, under the Common Law, the Crown is inherited by a sovereign's heir apparent.

Given that Queen Elizabeth is sovereign, it makes Prince Charles the first in the line of succession to the British throne.

After Charles, comes his son Prince William. Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis are third, fourth and fifth in line respectively. Prince Harry is the sixth in the line of succession.

The Queen will not abdicate her throne

With a recent trend of kings and queens across Europe giving up their crowns for their direct descendants, many are of the opinion that Queen Elizabeth will follow suit.

However, royal expert Moniek Bloks claims that would not be the case as Queen Elizabeth sees her position as a lifelong commitment.

Moniek believes that the monarch will settle for giving Prince Charles a new title as a way of giving him more power.

He said:

"I think if anything happens, it's more likely she'll make Charles regent instead of completely abdicating. I think it's very unlikely that she will abdicate."

According to reports, if Charles becomes regent, he would assume most of the duties of the Queen, but won't be crowned until her demise.

Former royal butler predicts Prince Charles will never be king

Moniek isn't the only one of the opinion that Charles won't be king anytime soon. Former royal butler Paul Burrell believes the monarchy will switch things up the moment Queen Elizabeth dies.

"It's a very controversial prediction, but we will never see King Charles and Queen Camilla sat on the throne of England. Watch that space."

Paul is of the opinion that when Queen Elizabeth finally dies, Charles will realize that he is too old to rule and give up the throne for Prince Williams.

While all these are nothing but speculation, only time can truly tell the monarch's intention.
