A king's abdication seems no longer unthinkable
William is needed now more than ever. On Monday, the palace announced that Charles had been diagnosed with cancer. Outpatient treatment has reportedly already started. During this period the king should not come out in public. Step along Queen Camilla (76) and sister of Charles Princess Anne (73) Especially William.
Constitutional expert Craig Prescott from London's Royal Holloway University, believes there is no question William will become head of the royal family sooner than expected. “When Charles came to the throne at 74, it didn't look like he would be in good health for another 20 years. That assumption is now broken,” he said, adding that recent developments have made abdication – perhaps in 10 years – more likely. “There may be a real need to bring the next generation with William,” Prescott said.
The king himself may be quiet in the future. Charles and Camilla reportedly flew to Sandringham, in the east English province of Norfolk, by helicopter on Tuesday. They were previously spotted smiling and waving in the backseat of a car in London.
