‘The A-word is BANNED’ Royal insider REVEALS why Queen WON’T give up the throne
A ROYAL documentary filmmaker has said the Queen ‘will never abdicate’ and has predicted Prince Charles may be more than 80-years-old by the time he ascends to the throne, due to factors such as young royals Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and Princess Charlotte renewing interest in the monarchy.
Nick Bullen, an award-winning filmmaker, has spent years making documentaries about the British monarchy. The filmmaker believes the Queen will “never” step aside – and not just because of her steadfast commitment to her duty. Mr Bullen believes the Queen’s reluctance to abdicate is because of renewed interest in the Royal Family, thanks to younger members such as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

Speaking to Yahoo News series The Royal Box True Royalty TV, Mr Bullen said: “I think the Queen sees what those boys and their wives bring, I also wonder whether she even throws forward to the great grandchildren.
“Princess Charlotte, already at the age of 3, knows how to work a crowd.
“Maybe now through her grandchildren she can see a way of just staying on the crest of that wave.”
On her 21st birthday, the Queen, then Princess Elizabeth, delivered a heartwarming vow to the world in a live broadcast transmission from Cape Town, during the Royal Family’s South African tour in 1947.
One of her most famous lines read: “My whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family” -with the Queen sticking to her vow nearly 70 years later.
Mr Bullen also hinted that Charles, Prince of Wales – while ready to become king at the age of 70 – may not ascend the throne within the next ten years, meaning he will eventually become king when is 80 or older.

Mr Bullen said: “Her mother lived to 101. The Queen is there for the long run. She could live for at least another 10 years.
“She’s seen it all, she’s done it all, she is the ultimate working mother and working woman, and I don’t think she’s going anywhere, anytime soon.”
Prince Charles has been seen as preparing for the role of King throughout the course of life after being formally invested to the role of Prince of Wales in 1969 in a public ceremony.
Charles is the longest reigning Prince of Wales in history and the longest serving heir apparent.
But the Daily Mail reports the Queen informed her inner circle that if she is still in power by the age of 95, she will ask for the Regency Act to be implemented.
The act is a piece of legislation that would grant Charles full power to reign even if she is still alive.
In 2017, Charles was appointed the Queen’s successor as Head of the Commonwealth. and she has been increasingly handing over patronages and royal duties to younger family members in recent years.
