The most marketable brand in the UK today is the British Royal family. The Windsor family is UK’s most popular brand whose steps are constantly under watch by the entire world.
Queen Elizabeth II is a strong pillar in the country, but that might not be the case always. The head of the state is a position given to a royal as a birthright. The monarch is born superior in Britain, who has the power to form governments and dissolve governments.
As the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations are underway, entire Britain is now similar to a gigantic Royal Theme Park to celebrate the historic achievement of the Queen’s 70 years on the throne and service to the citizens of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.
There are several people eager to know who will be the next Queen of England after Queen Elizabeth which we will try to decode in our article today.
The successor of the British Throne
96-Year-Old British Monarch, Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-serving monarch in the history of Britain. She acceded to the throne in 1952 at the age of 25.
Everyone is aware of the fact that Prince Charles is heir to the throne however many citizens want to know what will happen when the Queen dies? Can Prince Harry still be king even though he has been relieved of the responsibilities of a royal family member?
British throne succession is determined by descent, sex, legitimacy, and religion. According to the common law, the throne is inherited by a sovereign’s children or by a childless sovereign’s nearest collateral line.
What is Queen’s wish?
Earlier this year, the Queen released a statement in February where she disclosed it was her “sincere wish” that after Prince Charles becomes King, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, would be known as Queen Consort. This implies that Camilla will take responsibility for the full royal role.
Queen said in a statement, “This anniversary also affords me a time to reflect on the goodwill shown to me by people of all nationalities, faiths, and ages in this country and around the world over these years. It is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service.”
Prince Charles replied to his mother saying, “We are deeply conscious of the honour represented by my mother’s wish. As we have sought together to serve and support Her Majesty and the people of our communities, my darling wife has been my own steadfast support throughout.”
Know the Royal Line of Succession
73-Year-Old Prince Charles, the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh will most likely be crowned king after the death of his mother, Elizabeth.
Prince William, the son of Prince Charles and grandson of Queen Elizabeth II is second in the line of succession to the British throne. Third in line is Prince George, the son of Prince William, grandson of Prince Charles; great-grandson of Queen Elizabeth II.
Their next successor is Prince George’s sister, Princess Charlotte, followed by his younger brother, Prince Louis. Sixth in line of succession to the British throne is Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex.
