The Queen has been at the center of speculations.
In recent days, numerous speculations were about a possible abdication.
Although she celebrated during the confinement the absolute record of sixty-seven years of reign, she is rumored to be willing to abdicate, in favor of her eldest son, Prince Charles. Of course: this is not the first time it is said that the queen could leave the throne. But this time, many seem to believe it. Starting with an authorized source such as Andrew Morton, biographer of Lady Di and Meghan Markle. In his columns in the journal “Telegraph”, he explains that the pandemic “brought Charles to the throne.”
The queen, who celebrated her 94th birthday in April, and her husband, who turned 99 this week, are at great risk because of her age. The precautions to be taken before the pandemic are not compatible with the real lifestyle. In fact, Elizabeth II is in contact with many people every day, moves crowds behind her on her walk and is too exposed to the virus. “He’s always loved going out and meeting people, but he can’t take that risk. The brutal truth is that his executive reign is over,” Morton says.
However, it still seems unlikely that the queen, who ascended to the throne at the age of 26 and dedicated his life to his mandate, seems unlikely. When you think twice, it seems unlikely that you will abdicate. Even in the face of the pandemic. Although it is true, and all sources agree, it should deprive itself of resuming its actual rhythm. At least until the disease is eradicated. But is that possible?
Meanwhile, there is speculation that Elizabeth II could give Prince Charles more responsibility. For several years now, the Queen has asked Prince Charles and Prince William to take more place in the foreground. If you have survived more than six decades of crises of all kinds, why would you now leave your duties? They’re all questions and speculations. But perhaps the coronavirus will also change what for so many generations has been normal at Buckingham Palace.
