Ok, sorry but I have to clear a few things up,
1) A monarch wouldnt go to the UN to announce abdication, it has to be dealt with by the house of commons in the UK
2) the law concerning who is next in line to the british throne is over 500 years old, it CANNOT skip prince charles.
Her Majesty's speach to the UN will be one of reflection, upon how much has changed and how much is still to do, as the longest serving head of
state, and arguably the most respected, i'd imagine the recetion will be pretty special.
I am proud of the british monarchy, they rise above the politics, yet have the power to influence, Queen Elizabeth II makes me proud to the British
