A lot has been going on withing the British Royal Family over the years, but recently, all eyes are on Queen Elizabeth and her health. In the past period, she was seen using a cane to help her walk and it triggered a number of speculations about her condition.
The Queen was forced to cancel a number of meetings and trips due to “preliminary investigations.” It was reported that doctors advised her to rest for two weeks just before her trip to Northern Ireland. The Palace wrote that Her Majesty The Queen is in good spirits and that she sends warm wishes to the people of Northern Ireland and is looking forward to visiting in the future.
It was also reported that she would continue with “light, desk-based duties.”
On November 11, when the people of Britain commemorate those who lost their lives in the line of duty, The Remembrance Day, Queen Elizabeth missed the event and her absence was felt a great deal.
The public got worried of their Queen’s well-being, but seeing her attending her great-grandchildren’s christening on Sunday at a private ceremony held at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor, brought a sense of relief.
Although the Queen seems to be going strong, people can’t help but wonder what would happen when she’s no longer around.
Being the eldest child of Queen Elizabeth and late Prince Philip, Prince Charles, as heir apparent, will become King of England.
Even though the time hasn’t come yet for him to ascend the throne, he wants to make one crucial change when it does.
The marriage of Prince Charles and his first wife, the beloved Princess of Whales, Diana, ended in divorce because he started a relationship with his current wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, while he was still married.
“There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded,” Diana famously said in a 1995 interview.
When Charles and Camilla married in 2005, it was decided that once he becomes King of England, her title would be Princess Consort. That same information appeared on the family’s official website on October 17. “As was explained at the time of their wedding in April 2005, it is intended that The Duchess will be known as HRH The Princess Consort when The Prince of Wales Accedes to The Throne,” the site wrote.
Well, it looks like Prince Charles isn’t happy with this title and is doing all in his power to change that. Reports are he forces his wife to get the title Queen Camilla when the time comes, something neither of his sons are happy about.
According to Newsweek, historian Robert Lacey said, “Privately I discovered both brothers are absolutely sick to the back teeth of Charles trying to negotiate full Queen status for Camilla.” However, it isn’t just the brothers who despise this idea. The public has had their word in a poll done by YouGov back in May of this year.
According to the votes, only 13 percent of Britons believe Camilla should be called Queen, 41 agree she should get the title Princess Consort, while the rest, 28, believe she shouldn’t receive any title.
Hopefully, the Queen would live much longer and we will only discover Camilla’s title in a number of years.
