The Queen would leave the throne at 95: William and Kate are ready to replace her. But for Harry and Meghan Markle there is no room in the new Monarchy
Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle in comparison: the truth about their enmity
Queen Elizabeth would be seriously considering retiring on her 95th birthday in 2021. Rumors of the possible abdication have agitated experts on royal matters who are now wondering who will succeed her to the throne.
According to the natural line of succession, Prince Charles will be the next King, but it seems – according to rumors reported by New Idea – that the Palace is considering whether to entrust the Crown directly to William, eldest son of the Prince of Wales and Diana, thus jumping a generation.
According to experts there would be clear signs that William and consequently his wife Kate Middleton are the privileged candidates for this transfer of power (perhaps this is why Kate wore Elizabeth's earrings at the cenotaph). In fact, the Dukes of Cambridge have been taking on more and more institutional positions for several months, that is since Elizabeth was forced to cancel and then drastically reduce her public commitments due to the pandemic, in consideration of her advanced age. So much so that in the face of this second wave, she withdrew with Prince Philip to Windsor.
However, at the age of 94 Elisabetta did not shirk some essential duties, such as the ceremony during Remembrance Day or her presence at the Defense Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) with William. Evidently, however, he feels more and more urgent the need to guarantee a peaceful succession and to entrust the Monarchy to fresh energies. And here is the point.
In fact, Carlo is already 71 and has lived all his life in the shadow of his mother. So, William and Kate, much younger, much closer to current issues, are the ideal candidates to succeed Elizabeth. But the transition would not be painless. In fact, a source close to the Palazzo told Us Weekly that it is very difficult for the Sovereign to deprive Charles of the throne. "Carlo sees it as his birthright, he has dreamed of it all his life and His Majesty would find it very difficult to deprive him of this". "Carlo will be King and will have his wife Camilla by his side," the insider stressed.
On the other hand, it seems that many in the Court would like the Crown to pass directly to William. And the fact that he did not reveal his positivity to the virus was a way to protect his rise and prevent panic from spreading over Harry becoming King.
Speaking of Harry and Meghan Markle, according to what New Idea reports, there would be no more space for them in the new Monarchy, whether it is Charles or William to take power. Lady Diana's former butler, Paul Burrell, who is well versed in the affairs of the Royal Family, has in fact declared that the Prince of Wales will not include Harry and Meghan in his plan. "Charles made it clear that he intends to streamline the Monarchy and reduce the number of Family members working full time to those in the immediate line of succession." And anyone who thinks of exploiting his noble title will be invited to pack up under the reign of Charles.
Well, Harry and Meghan will get well served, but basically that's what they wanted: to live independently from the Crown. And they are succeeding, given the millionaire contracts and the money they take for each public intervention. If we want to be honest, Lady Markle seems to point to another type of building, namely the White House. Already in these presidential elections he made his voice heard and rumors circulate about a possible candidacy in four years.
