Queen abdication fears dismantled as monarch will not step down: ‘She’s anointed!’


THE Queen is unlikely to abdicate, according to royal experts, as her Platinum Jubilee approaches.

The coronation is a religious ceremony and Her Majesty has a strong Christian faith.

Speaking earlier this year, Mr Vickers told the Guardian: “One main reason why the Queen will absolutely not abdicate is unlike other European monarchs, she is an anointed Queen.

“And if you are an anointed Queen you do not abdicate.

“It would be completely illogical to abdicate just before that extraordinary anniversary.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to celebrate.”

Joe Little, the managing editor of Majesty Magazine, also highlighted the speech the Queen gave on her 21st birthday in 1947 when she was Princess Elizabeth.

She said: “I declare before you all that my whole life whether it be long or short shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong.”

“But as monarch, she will continue as long as she is physically and mentally able to do so. I think it is in her DNA.

“It also goes back not only to her speech in 1947 in South Africa but more specifically to the oath she took at the time of the coronation.

“She is a committed Christian. That’s the contract she made with God, and I think something she feels can’t be broken. It’s just how she is.”

If the Queen was unable to carry out her constitutional duties, a regent could be appointed.

The Queen’s coronation took place on June 2 1953.

The coronation is an occasion for pageantry and celebration but it is also a solemn religious ceremony.

The service is conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury at Westminster Abbey.

She acceded to the throne on February 6 1952 when she was 25 years old.

Throughout 2022, the Queen and other members of the Royal Family will carry out engagements to mark the historic milestone.

Celebrations will also take place during a four-day weekend in June.
