Kate and William to save Commonwealth from referendums under Charles’ kingship


KATE MIDDLETON and Prince William are thought to be the reason why Commonwealth countries such as Australia and Canada will continue to keep the British Royal Family as head of state.

“The reason being is it’s quite technical in Australia. You have to get a majority in each of the states and it’s the same in Canada and there is much more popular for the monarchy than one would think.

“Charles would be king of those realms and it would have to then take the referendum to change that.

“That’s when I think they might think again about it because Charles will be in his late 70s by then and William and Kate will be very much the Prince and Princess of Wales.

“They’ll be very popular, flying around the world – talking to big crowds.

“I think they won’t be pushing to get rid of the monarchy because, in 15 years’ time, they may be looking at a very different and very popular king and queen.”

The Prince of Wales, who has been first in line to the throne for more than seven decades, is the oldest heir apparent in British history.

Royal expert Stewart Pearce has explained how Charles could step aside and let the Duke of Cambridge take his place.

Speaking to Royally Us on Us Weekly, Mr Pearce said: “We know the position he is about to inherit, it’s going to be very interesting to see if Prince Charles will sit in the throne or will he create some form of a shift in constitutional law to allow his son to sit in the throne.

“That’s going to be very interesting.

“At the moment the right of ascendency is Charles on the throne but I don’t necessarily see Queen Camilla.”

He added: “Constitutional law could be revoked and changed because after all we’re living in extraordinary times.”

Speaking to Palace Confidential on MailPlus, royal commentator Richard Eden said: “Palace officials have been very keen to play down the idea of a summit Charles has called with Prince William to plot the future.

“But they will be having lots of conversations.

“When the Queen is 95, by definition it will be a transition of some effect.”
