Will Prince Charles take the throne before his mother Queen Elizabeth II dies? Rumours suggest that might be the case.
In an episode of Yahoo’s Royal Box, British journalist Phil Dampier says while it is unlikely that the 93-year-old monarch will abdicate the throne, she may start to relinquish her responsibilities in about two years.
“There is talk that when she reaches 95 … that she might slow down, possibly the Regency Act will be brought in,” the author, who has covered the royal family for more than three decades, says in the video. “She’ll still be Queen but Charles will, in fact, take over most of the duties. And, of course, he’s starting to do that already, being at the state opening in parliament and the Commonwealth conference.”
Regency Acts are an act of U.K. parliament that designates a regent to govern if the monarch is incapacitated, absent or a minor. The Regency Act of 1811, for example, designated then-Prince of Wales George as regent when his father King George III became incapacitated due to his mental illness. He served as regent until his father’s death in 1820 and reigned an additional 10 years as King George IV.
The current version, the Regency Act of 1937, was drafted after Elizabeth’s father George VI became king to ensure a regent was designated in case he died or became incapacitated before she turned 21.
However, the act wasn’t used as Elizabeth was 25 years old when she ascended to the throne in 1952.

So. . . would it be appropriate to say to Her Maj "Have a reigny day?"

You could do. She has a great sense of humour. I just rather suspect most people would be too intimidated to say that to the most famous living person in the world.

I will give you this, no snark, no sarcasm. Britain has been incredibly fortunate in its queens regnant, and Elizabeth II is the very model of grace, dignity, and dare I say? majesty for the 20th/21st centuries.

Yes, I would feel comfortable telling her a joke. My only worry would be that it might not be good enough.

It's like when Trump visited the UK recently. Even though I like him, it's true that when he visits other world leaders he likes to present himself as the boss, the big man, and actually makes himself look physically intimidating.

He didn't do that when he met Queen Elizabeth II recently. He seemed to be in awe and overwhelmed in her presence and it seemed to be her, 93 year old woman that she is, who let him know who's boss.

In fact, in a recent Tweet, Trump poured scorn on May and said the only person who he truly respected during his recent State Visit was the Queen.

She'll smile, anyway.

She's a classy dame.

Yesterday she helped to plant a tree. She picked up a spade and started scooping up dirt. Don't forget, she's 93.

Offered help, she politely declined it, saying "I'm still capable of planting a tree": https://youtu.be/ZfNCq9wR7F4

That will be quite enough of the rumours about His Royal Highness losing his virginity, thank you.

Bestiality is still a crime and a sin in Britain.

Bestiality has been illegal in England & Wales since 1558, the year Elizabeth I came to the throne - probably before every other nation on Earth - which isn't surprising considering we are talking about the most civilised nation on Earth.

However, it's still entirely legal in many US states.

We should still be making them, tricked out with more modern engines.

I calculate that's why you can't get laid.

When you fail miserably, start resorting to the putdowns.

In fact, I'm actually quite popular with the ladies. I'm actually quite a looker, it seems. Just last week I was walking home from work when a car full of young women slowed down and I was treated to a lot of wolf whistling. Slightly embarrassing, but it still made me happy.

I rather suspect you don't get such treatment, and never have done.

He sounds like a bit of a cock. I don't know about a cocker spaniel.

The next monarch has already been decided, you idiot. It's Prince Charles.

It's called the Line of Succession, which goes back to 1485, before North America was even discovered.

I don't mind the All Blacks. When it comes to rugby union they have no equal. Jonah Lomu was like a tank.

I don't like the Argies, thought. Not after the war and Maradona's Hand of God. It's just disgraceful stuff. And they are all ugly, brown-skinned, buck-toothed inbreds who were so terrified of British soldiers they actually thought the Gurkhas would eat them (which they probably would have done, actually, had the Argies not run away. The Gurkhas would have slit their throats with their kukris and roasted them on spits in Port Stanley harbour).

Gonna be Jared. Trump's going to demand it on Twitter.
