REVEALED: The Queen will ‘NOT abdicate throne for Prince Charles’

The Queen will not abdicate the thrown for Prince Charles, Buckingham Palace insiders have suggested.

Buckingham Palace officials would not be drawn to comment on the matter, but referred to the pledge she made on her 21st birthday, where she said: ““I declare… that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service”.

Allies close to the world’s longest serving monarch have dismissed claims she will request that the Regency Act is enforced in the near future.

The Regency Act 1937 means the monarch can relinquish power to the heir “in the event of incapacity of the sovereign through illness, and for the performance of certain royal functions in the name and on behalf of the sovereign in certain other events”.

The monarch’s duties can be carried out by a regent if it is put into writing that the royal is incapable of carrying out royal functions by three or more of sovereign consorts, the lord chancellor, the speaker of the House of commons or the master of the rolls.

Both royal households have moved quickly to dispel rumours that the Queen was set to follow the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, and retire from public service.

It was rumoured the Queen would step down if she as still the monarch by 95-years-old but one source told the Sunday Times: “The Queen has always been so vehement that there will never be a regency unless she was sick to the point of being unable to perform her duties.

“As long as she’s healthy, regardless of her age, I don’t see a regency. Other members of the royal family can just do more.”

The Queen has recently stopped carrying out long-haul overseas trips as part of her royal duties, with Prince Charles and other members of the royal family taking on more of the burden.

For next years Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia, Prince Charles is expected to officially open the sporting event.

Last week, an Express poll found that two-thirds of Britons do not think Camilla should be Queen.

Our exclusive poll found 67 per cent do not support the Duchess of Cornwall taking the title when Charles becomes king, with just 19 per cent believing she is fit for the role.
