Bio & Commonwealth Leaders May Choose Prince Charles to Succeed the Queen!

By a press release (20/04/18)

President Julius Maada Bio joins Commonwealth leaders today to probably choose Prince Charles to succeed his mother, the Queen.

 

It comes after Queen Elizabeth 11 had endorsed her son as future leader at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) at Buckingham Palace yesterday. She said it was her "sincere wish" that he takes over as leader of the 53-nation body "one day".

The unprecedented move was thought likely to end years of speculation about who will take over as head of the institution her father King George VI first led in the aftermath of the Second World War.

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, arrived for the formal opening of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. But the role is not hereditary and will not automatically be passed to the Prince of Wales on the Queen's death. Leaders are expected to approve the move when they meet at Windsor Castle on today Friday. (Photo: Prime Minister Theresa May welcomed President Bio).

Officially opening the summit at a ceremony in the Buckingham Palace ballroom, the Queen said it was her "sincere wish" that the Commonwealth "will decide that one day the Prince of Wales should carry on the important work started by my father in 1949".

While the leaders are widely expected to fulfil the hopes expressed by the Queen, there was no official confirmation that Charles will be offered the role. The Queen addresses the audience at the formal opening of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.

Prime Minister Theresa May has already given her backing to Prince Charles, with her official spokesman saying: "The Government supports the Prince of Wales as the next head of the Commonwealth. He has been a proud supporter of the Commonwealth for more than four decades."

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Thursday: "I very much agree with the wishes of Her Majesty that the Prince of Wales be the next head of the Commonwealth." (Photo: Prince Charles with his mother, the Queen yesterday).
 


And Keith Mitchell, the Prime Minister of Grenada, told the BBC: "It would be good news, the Queen herself does very well and certainly we have been fortunate to have her leadership of stable leadership over this period. "But having the Prince of Wales would certainly not be an unhelpful act at this point in time."

It has been widely assumed that the Queen, who celebrates her 92nd birthday on Saturday, is probably presiding over her last CHOGM in person as she has not taken a long-haul flight for a number of years and the venue for the biennial summit moves around the globe.
 


The Queen has been head of the Commonwealth since coming to the throne in 1952, but the position is not automatically held by the British monarch. Leaders were also debating topics ranging from a blue charter on ocean conservation to cyber security and trade.
