Just wondering if our new king will be prince Charles or prince William. I think it is supposed to be Charles but how will his age affect his reign?

Charles. I don't think they'd skip an entire generation just because he's going to be old, age doesn't make a weak ruler as HM has shown us. Also the thought of Willy the Angry being monarch scares me.  nervous  

I know not everyone likes Chuck either but he clearly wants to be King and has worked hard for it.

Can't Harry just be King instead of Willy?  Angry

I think there might be a scraping of it after HM dies.
Charles is out of touch and Camilla is a tart. Head of Church of England and an adulter...............think when time comes, it might be an issue. All the people that grew up with Charles as heir, will either be dead or past caring
William is immature and with a weird marriage and tarty wife

No respect for Chuckles or Wimpo


I am going with the end of rule after HM ( wishful I know )

If Charles is still alive when his mother dies, he will be King. Skipping a generation would be undermining the entire 'raison d'etre' of the monarchy. Just as going for Harry instead of William because Harry might be more suitable.
If suitability is a guiding rule for the new Head of State, opt for a republic with a president.

So unless some tragedies will occur (and I hope not), it will be Charles III (or George VII, whatever regnal name he chooses) and after that, William V.
That is of course if the monarchy will survive and with heirs like Charles and William, that remains to be seen.

Charles wont live for the Crown. William does not want it, but WK does................

Maybe surrogate baby might be a better King/Queen but one brought up by the clinically insane,not so sure

Okay maybe he hasn't worked to earn the role as such but he has so much more graft as a royal than his bone idle son. If either of the two Princes becomes King then I hope it's Harry.

Charles will be the next King unless he predeceases the Queen or becomes mentally incapacitated or too ill to take on the role.

There is a lot could happen between now and when or if Charles becomes King.

If we do keep a monarchy then I would prefer to see Harry or Bea as monarch. It is after all a ceremonial role and either Bea or Harry would be capable.

I was watching CNN and they skipped right over Pr.Charles to Waity Katey as next Queen now pregnant with the third in line -future King or Queen and William as King, they totally bypassed Charles in the segment, they didn't say William would BE next King, they just said his coronation would take place where the Queen's did today, but they didn't even mention Charles or Cams.  The press is really pushing for William. IMO They don't seem to care about the line? It was such a odd segment the way they pushed W and Kate to the forefront, really weird. I hope a segment producer rewrites it and adds Charles into it, because it seemed so odd.  blink

they also consider who sell and who doesn't. Charles doesn't and Camilla even less.

Most people think that the Queen can bypass Charles and the press plays to that because they know that most do not like Charles (not entering into the discussion if that opinion is right or wrong).

That's quite true, I am surprised how much of the general public think it's a matter of the Queen selecting one over the other.

But Waity doesn't sell either, in fact she seems to p*ss people off more than Camilla if anything.
She is quite easily the most disliked royal at the moment and that's saying something!

I was thinking today that Charles may change when he loses one or both of his parents. He has lost his uncle and grandmother who he was fond of but when you lose parents you start thinking about your own mortality. Sometimes things that seemed important don't any more. So Charles may bail out and retire to Highgrove and Scotland.

The word bail is not in Charles vocabulary. If he is 99 and has one eye working,one lung and one leg he can walk on, he will take that Throne if it comes to him.  bored3

I think that Charles, above all, should know how unsuitable William and Kate really are  IMO if the throne does not go to Harry after Charles, it is finished.  William and Kate will make sure of that.

I believe that Charles will be the next King. He has been the Prince of Wales for decades. It would be nice if he could become the Sovereign.

He is next in line of succession so he will be king.

It would have to be Charles. It's not a monarchy if the people get to choose the next monarch.
