In response to renewed speculation that Her Majesty who is now 93, is planning on retiring to make way for her son, Prince Charles, a spokesperson for the Prince of Wales’ office released a rare statement shooting down the speculations.
“There are no plans for any change in arrangements at the age of 95 or any other age,” the spokesman declared in a statement.
The new rounds of gossip and speculation that Elizabeth will retire and step down soon were prompted by the recent announcement that Prince Andrew would be indefinitely stepping away from official royal duties in the aftermath of his widely-panned interview with the BBC, during which he addressed his ties with Jeffrey Epstein as well as Prince Charles taking on more royal roles and duties.
UK based newspapers also reported that it was Charles the Prince of Wales who pushed his mother to strip Andrew of his royal duties.
Royal biographer Sally Bedell Smith has also pointed out that the Queen can’t just decide to step down from the throne, as there are specific processes in place at the palace to determine when it’s time for her reign to come to an end.
“The Queen can’t just wave a queen wand and say Charles you are my regent,” Bedell Smith has said. “It’s not her call — and it’s not his call.”
It looks like our majesty isn’t coming off the throne anytime soon.
