Date December 6, 2019 15:44

After the recent news about Prince Andrew’s stepping back from royal duties following a public scandal, royal watchers started making suggestions that Her Majesty plans to retire too when she turns 95. Here is what the Palace responded.

Does the Queen plan to retire?

In recent time, there’ve been a lot of rumors in the media considering the Queen’s soon retirement. Multiple sources reported that Her Majesty plans to retire at 95. Now, Queen Elizabeth is 93.

The reports claimed:

Planning for Charles to become king has been going on for some time. A transition is plainly already underway.

Another hint to speculate about the Queen’s retirement came after her son Prince Andrew had to step back from royal duties following the massive scandal.

Fans suggested that amid this stressful situation, Her Majesty would prefer her son Prince Charles to protect the Crown and become the King in the nearest future.

Palace’s response

But what do we have for real?! The Palace rep confirmed to People that Her Majesty has no plans to retire soon.

The spokesman admitted:

There are no plans for any change in arrangements at the age of 95 — or any other age.

God bless the Queen! As you see, people like to speculate about life of the royal family. But let’s not believe all rumors about monarchs!

Royal expert’s opinion

But what about the King-in-waiting Prince Charles?!

Royal expert Moniek Bloks suggested that the Queen will more likely assume Charles with more power by giving him a new title.

The expert said:

It’s more likely she’ll make Charles regent instead of completely abdicating. I think it’s very unlikely that she will abdicate.

We wish our charming Queen to stay on high spirits for many more upcoming years!
