The eldest son of Her Majesty Elizabeth II, Prince Charles is a poor heir to the Crown in the eyes of royal biographer Clive Irving, interviewed on Today Extra on Monday, January 18.
He tackles him unequivocally. Royal biographer Clive Irving, interviewed in the Australian program Today Extra, quoted by the Honey Nine website on Monday, January 18, attacked Prince Charles, whom he perceives as a “completely unsuitable” heir to the Crown of Her Majesty Elizabeth II. “The Queen seems more modern than Charles.
She is very timeless, whereas Charles is a figure of the 18th century,” said the author of The Last Queen, a book dedicated to Her Royal Highness. “It wouldn’t be a problem if he didn’t try to impose his taste on others (…) he prefers to surround himself with sycophants, which is not a good indicator for a future ruler”.
To save the monarchy, Clive Irving found only one solution. “It’s a pity that they can’t really jump from Queen to William,” he said of the grandson of Her Majesty Elizabeth II, who was not in a hurry to be sovereign. This might displease Prince Charles, whose reign would not excite many people.
Already in April 2015, a poll conducted by the tabloid The Daily Mirror had revealed that 56% of British people wanted to see Prince William accede to the throne of England instead of the Prince of Wales. Among the youngest, between 18 and 34 years, 65% favored the Duke of Cambridge.
Her Majesty, ready to resign?
But the opinions of the anonymous can do nothing against the protocol. And with the approach of the 95th spring of Her Majesty Elizabeth II, Prince Charles might be forced to take over sooner than expected, some estimating that the monarch will resign at the dawn of her birthday.
“I don’t think she will want to, but realistically she will get to the point where she has given Charles all her responsibilities and how to look your son in the eye and tell him he won’t be king,” journalist Jack Royston told True Royalty TV’s Royal Beat.
Touched by the coronavirus in March 2020, Prince Charles could however reserve some surprises for the British people because, just like his son and Meghan Markle, the Duke of Cornwall is a man of commitment, especially in the name of the environment.
