The royal family’s televised events have garnered buzz and generated more interest in the royals who are led by 93-year-old Queen Elizabeth. The recent revelations by Prince Andrew, the Queen’s son, in an interview regarding a sex scandal have turned more eyes towards them. This led to the Queen stripping off Prince Andrew of his royal duties and not letting him attend royal engagements. The monarch was firm on her decision and asserted power despite Prince Andrew being her own son. It is said that this decision was taken into account with opinions from Prince Charles and Prince William.
Now, a latest report suggests that Queen Elizabeth may consider passing the baton to her heir, Prince Charles, as soon as she turns 95. According to a report in People, the Queen may want to pull back from public life in favor of Charles — in 18 months’ time when the Queen turns 95.
The news reportedly first surfaced in Prince Charles’ biography by Robert Jobson in 2018. In the book, Jobson wrote, “One senior aide told me that the Queen has given the matter of her passing hears considerable thought and believes, that, if she is still alive at ninety-five she will consider passing the reign to Charles.”
However, the Palace refuted such news during the week and told People, “There are no plans for any change in arrangements at the age of 95 — or any other age.” Well, given the fact that the Queen put her foot down and fired her own son from royal duties speaks volumes of the authority she still commands.
