I kind of wish we could just skip Charles so we could have a young monarch.

I do actually because I'm in the Illuminati. Now stop talking to me before I send someone to make you disappear.

The monarchy is fake and bull**** anyway.
Goes against most of British political values and the political stance here.

Why don't we just draw a line under it all after the queen finally kicks the bucket. They're a ****ing embarrassment in 2015. Charles seems to have been suspiciously close to Savile too.

She's clearly waiting to steal the title of longest reigning monarch of England from Vicky, which will officially be the case from September 11th 2015 (Unfortunate date much #Illuminaticonspiracynutters)

There will come a point, which will come as a crushing blow to Charles, when the PM will recommend to the Queen a change in the order of succession.

The problem is that not only will we not have a young monarch soon, we will never have even a moderately young monarch.

If you look at the age of ascending the throne in the past:-

George III 21
George IV 57 (but Prince Regent from 49)
William IV 64
Victoria 18
Edward VII 59
George V 44
Edward VIII 41
George VI 40
Elizabeth II 25

Prince William is currently 32. If the Queen lives as long as her mother, Prince William will be 46 before his father comes to the throne.

She should wait because we need to know what was in Charles' letters before he becomes king.

I expect she will handover sometime soon. Charles will then have it long enough to implement his plans of streamlining the royal family before then handing over to his son.

Agree with previous points raised; The royal family is a complete mockery of fairness and equality in this country. It should have been abolished long ago. Not a particularly nice family either.

I do not want a king that values homoeopathy as treatment for cancer over rigorous, clinical, scientific based trials.

Because no one wants Charles in the throne, so we're hoping he kicks the bucket as soon after he gets it as possible.

We keep the monarchy for tourism purposes and because they can break up parliament in the event of dissonance between MPs and the people. If a monarch tried to execute any unreasonable or significant power other than that, it would be broken up in a second.

Because she doesn't want to let go of power and status and admit that she's getting too old for the job. Poor Charles though, by the time he's King he'll probably be at death's door.
