THE Queen is preparing to make Prince Charles “King in all but name” – 67 years after she turned from Princess to Monarch.

Her Majesty today marks the anniversary of her accession to the throne – but any celebrations will be bittersweet.

Today is of course also the day her dad King George VI died, enabling Princess Elizabeth to become Queen.

She had been staying in Africa with Prince Philip, en route to a diplomatic visit to Australia, when the news broke.

But the announcement of her dad’s death on February 6, 1952 would not reach her in Kenya until the next day.

For 24 hours a young Princess had no idea she had just become queen.

When officials finally got through to the Queen’s royal aides to inform them of the news, it was then passed on to a stunned Prince Philip.

He would decide to take his wife on a walk through the foothills of Mount Kenya.

It was there, 4,000 miles away from London, where he broke the news and changed a 25-year-old Princess’s life forever.

The now-Queen then cut short her trip to go back home and, having left a Princess, Elizabeth arrived back in the UK as Queen.

And now, 67 years later, she is preparing for another major change – making her son and heir to the throne a “King in all but name”.

A source previously revealed to Daily Star Online how, when the Queen turns 95 on April 21, 2021, she will trigger the “regency act”.

This legalisation – only used once before – would see Prince Charles made a Prince Regent at 70 – becoming King in all but name.
