A national newspaper has suggested that the Queen is close to stepping down from the Royal Family and allowing Charles to take her place. It comes as the Queen released a statement regarding the awful terrorist that took place in London a few days ago.
Speaking to CTV News, royal expert Richard Bethelson explained: “I myself felt that, after the Duke of Edinburgh retired at 95, it set the way and was a bit of a trial balloon for the Queen to follow suit in a few years.”.
It’s not clear yet whether or not the Queen will step aside but it would be highly unlikely for the Queen to do so. It’s thought that the Queen will die on the throne, although, there has been suggestions that she may step aside if her health was to take a serious turn for the worse.
The United Kingdom has been rocked by political turbulence. It comes as a general election will hit the country on the 12th of December. It isn’t clear yet if the Tories will secure a majority.
