The monarchy already has one compelling motive to crown Prince Charles as King.
According to sources, Queen Elizabeth II does not intend to abdicate or stand down as a reigning monarch anytime soon. This will undoubtedly add years to Prince Charles’ “waiting time,” despite the fact that he appears to have already waited long enough to be dubbed the longest-serving heir apparent in British history.
However, this configuration should not be sustained for an extended period of time. After all, the monarchy has been coping with a problem that only Prince Charles can easily handle once he becomes king.
The royal family’s costs have been a huge issue for the monarchy for years, and the Prince of Wales’ plan – which Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip do not support – is the only way to keep the British on their side.
According to documents obtained from Buckingham Palace last year, the Royal Household accepted £19.6 million more in taxpayer funds than they had in previous years. According to the most recent Statista data, this expense is only expected to rise.
If this is the case, the monarchy may become a burden, which the people will undoubtedly despise.
The royal palace could resolve this and continue to reign the monarchy if they pushed Prince Charles to the throne immediately, as his plan to cut down the monarchy would significantly reduce their daily costs.
Reduced royal family members mean lower outlays, which is what everyone wants, especially since the country is currently in difficulty owing to the coronavirus outbreak.
The only alternative left is the heir to the throne’s plan to reduce the number of members, and Prince Charles has been waiting for eight years (since he revealed the plan in 2012) to implement his “future vision” in re-establishing the monarchy.
When Prince Charles becomes King, he intends to promote solely the works of those closest to the monarchy, namely the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Cornwall.
Furthermore, the Prince of Wales has the potential to fund the entire monarchy because he has been the patron of over 400 organisations in his 71 years of life.
His Royal Highness also personally founded 18 of the 19 organizations listed under “The Prince’s Charities.”
With approximately £100 million in annual income, Prince Charles’ “The Prince’s Charities” has become the largest and most successful philanthropic effort in the United Kingdom, ranging from funnelling donations to maintaining historical structures.
Aside from these financial concerns, the Prince of Wales’ approach would help to alleviate the drama and speculations that have engulfed the royal family since Prince Andrew’s ouster and the departure of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from The Firm.
With all of the negative publicity surrounding the royals, it is time for Queen Elizabeth II to step aside and give Prince Charles his due.
