Royal Announcement: William & Kate Will Officially Be King & Queen


Take a look at your newest soon-to-be King and Queen of England! Today, Queen Elizabeth officially announced that she will be passing down her crown to her grandson Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton. This, of course, means that the Queen has skipped over her own son, Prince Charles, in the British monarchy’s line of succession. Bummer.


Click link for article...

wow... Didnt see this coming. It makes one wonder whats going on in the Royal family where Her Majesty the Queen would skip over her son, Prince Charles. I can only imagine how pissed he would be however from what I have read over the years I think Camilla will take it worse. She is the typical elite and looks down on commoners.

If anyone from the UK thinks otherwise let me know.

Either way an interesting development. I am curious if this is signaling the end to Royal rule in the UK.

“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.”


Or at least the end to the traditional standard.

Very unlikely to be true. The succession to the throne is controlled by Act of Parliament (1701 or 1702- must look it up). Not her decision to make.
This is an American source, isn't it? I can tell by the phrase "excited for the change". In British English, we are excited about things that are happening, and excited for [on behalf of] the people who benefit from them.

P.S. Also the words "Kate Middleton" give it away as not having an official source. She stopped being a Middleton when she got married. "Kate Middleton" is lazy and illiterate press usage.
P.P.S. Another giveaway is the loose title "King of England".

I came across it on yahoo news page. Im not familiar with the source they are citing though. The comments seem to suggest this is fake news as no official royal announcement exists on their website.

I don't use Yahoo news, so I don't know how easily they get caught by the fakes. When I saw the headline, I was expecting the source to be one of those satirical sites that sometimes catch unwary ATS posters.

This isn't the Queen's decision. The laws for succession are quite specific.

Only if Charles abdicates upon taking the Throne would this happen.

This is total crap. Made up. Dare I say that it's FAKE NEWS.

The OP article cites a source, that cites a source.

There is nothing official about this. It's just fantasy. Besides, the only way for Charles to be bypassed in the line of succession is for him to abdicate, or remove himself. The Queen cannot make an independent announcement as this ain't legal. Any decision like this would not be announced by Life and Style Magazine.

You need to question what you read before you believe it.

Given I cant find a normal news source for this I flagged the thread to either be deleted or moved to the hoax bin.

Maybe prince Charles is ill ? ....but if there's not a serious illness, then I can't see him giving up his heir rights to the thrown, nor Camille either .

Apologies if I sounded a bit grumpy.

In the UK we have something called Parliamentary supremacy, which means that Parliament controls the line of succession. Parliament could, by changing the law, decide to skip Charles in the succession, but that seems unlikely unless he demonstrated that he was totally unfit - e.g. has dementia. Even abdication (of Charles) would require Parliamentary approval. The current laws are clear on succession; Charles is next.

The monarchy in the UK is not a popularity contest with a celebrity spin. The mechanics of the monarchy are built into government and politics both in the UK and across the Commonwealth. It's not something that is taken lightly.

I hope this is more helpful.

Of course he’s ill. Ask Lady Diana, she’ll tell you all about it.

Anyway, without a reputable statement, and some fluff from all but two sites isn’t exactly official, this can in no way be taken seriously. Who knows, maybe the Queen does have plans to divert from usual practice but we’d need to hear her say it. Supposing there is even a tad of truth to this then one has to wonder as to the reasons, maybe it is about health but it would be fair to assume that Charles’ physical condition is better than the Queen when considering his age, he could potentially reign for 25 years. Maybe he doesn’t want to reign at all, maybe the Queen regards him a liability. Maybe she’s not even going to pass it to William and this story is simply a diversion, it could be that they’re going to forfeit entirely. The timing sure is interesting, though.

As others have stated, this is fake.

I'm about 99% sure of it.

That being said, Prince Charles might just abdicate once the opportunity comes. He'll know what the public thinks about him in relation to the crown, he's a busy man and does plenty of royal duties as it is.

He's very fond of the programs and commitments that are of his own making too, he'd have to give a lot of it up or hand over the reigns to others.

I suspect he'd rather not if it comes to it.

The source for Yahoo is SheKnows (IMO, s# reading anyway)
THEIR source is some magazine called "Closer Weekly".
That rag's source is some magazine called "Life & Style".

I have yet to find anything on "Life and Style" saying this. Methinks "Closer Weekly" is full of BS.

While it sounds like the source is dubious at best, it does make perfect sense.

NOBODY wants Charles for a King. Australia and New Zealand are just waiting for old Liz to die before declaring independence. This is in part motivated by the fact we cannot stand Charles.

IF Wills and Kate took up the throne, it may present a viable argument to remain part of the Commonwealth. If Charles is crowned King, we will declare independence quicker than one can say 'Stuff you England'

I with this was true, I do not hate Charles but he is somewhat of a disgrace and has dragged the royal establishment through the mud the way he treated his wife and with his relationship and later marriage to Camilla, his grand uncle was dethroned for far less as at least he was NOT married when he had his affair.
If Parliament approve his succession rather than skipping it to the far more suitable William then that also show's a moral decline and decline in public standards of parliament itself (ok we all know it is a den of thieves anyway but you get the point and there are still men and woman of honor in both houses).

So though doubtful and there has been no televised announcement on this, it would be a news flash, over all the newspapers and on all the headline's of every channel in the UK, I do wish this was true.

You know though I actually think Charles despite his moral failing and betrayal of his wife which many in this nation will never forgive him for since we still love Diana, would actually be a good king, now remember it is only really a ceremonial role and the monarch has nearly no power at all but does have plenty of duty's so is really a state employee appointed for life but still other than the bad way he treated Diana he does have some very good attribute's, he is pipped on all point's by Will's though.
