The Queen is likely to give Prince Charles a new title when it comes to the heir apparent taking over, claims an expert. This will be to mark the transition of power.
- Queen Elizabeth has been on the throne since 1952, serving as queen for 67 years.
- She is likely to stay on the throne until she dies, so will give Prince Charles a new title to mark the transition of power, an expert has claimed.
- This comes after the royal news that Prince Harry's and Duchess Meghan’s titles could be changing too, as they are up for debate in the coming month.
Queen Elizabeth has served on the throne for the last 67 years and a royal expert has claimed that she isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
It is believed that the Queen, who ascended to the throne back in 1952 after her father King George VI passed away, will remain on the throne until she dies, rather than abdicating and passing the crown to her son Prince Charles.
However, a royal expert has suggested that to mark the transition of power between her and next-in-line Charles, the Queen will bestow a new title onto him.
Speaking to the Royal Central podcast, royal expert Moniek Bloks suggested that the Queen won’t follow suit of several other European monarchs, who have passed their crowns onto their descendants.
‘I think if anything happens, it’s more likely she’ll make Charles regent instead of completely abdicating,’ said Ms Bloks.
‘I think it’s very unlikely that she will abdicate.’
By making Prince Charles regent, the Queen would be passing on the majority of her royal duties to her 70-year-old son, without losing her role as reigning monarch.
This move would mark the transition of power between the mother and son, before Charles would be crowned king after Queen Elizabeth II passes away.
The Queen would be able to make the move by triggering the Regency Acts, a series of laws that allows the removal of powers from the monarch to an appointed member of the Royal Family, should the monarch be unable to carry out their duties.
Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.
Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).
But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.
When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
