Queen Elizabeth just shocked the world with her official announcement about who will take her place as King and Queen of England and Prince Charles is not happy.
Because he’s been passed over, cut from the line of succession. He will not be King the Queen just announced and instead his oldest son William and his bride Kate will be the next King and Queen of England.
Wow this is a bit if a shocker.
Passing over her own son as Queen Elizabeth officially announces she will pass down her crown to her grandson Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton has got to sting a little bit.
Prince Charles is officially out in the British monarchy’s line of succession.
“Her Majesty realized that William and Kate are the future,” said a palace insider. “She has spent 65 years making sure that the House of Windsor survives, and she sees William and Kate as having the energy and star quality to do the job in a modern world. Queen Elizabeth will always do what is best for the long-term health of the monarchy.”
Another well placed source said,
“With all the drama that has surrounded the royal family over recent decades, Elizabeth realizes the monarchy no longer has the respect and power it once had,” another source said. “In her eyes, William and Kate are the two people who can turn that around.”
It is a heartbreaking decision for Prince Charles according to palace insiders,
“Things have been a bit strained between William and his father since the Queen’s decision. But they are slowly getting used to it.”
Charles’ wife of 12 years, Camilla Parker Bowles, however is said to he happy with the decision because she has had enough of the spotlight for one lifetime.
But it is all a moot point for now as one source said, “It’s well-known that the Queen will never abdicate the throne, and at 91, she is in great health. She intends to live to at least 100!”
