After almost 68 years on the throne, it’s no surprise that questions are being asked about how long the British monarch Queen Elizabeth II can keep going. After all, at the time of writing she’s 93 years old. Moreover, her son Prince Charles has reportedly been taking more of a hand as a power behind the throne. Nevertheless, the Queen persists. And recently, word emerged which has shed some light on her future plans.

There has been talk that Charles is now a “shadow king,” who may step in when the Queen reaches 95. That will happen in April 2021. It doesn’t happen very often that a reigning monarch steps aside to allow a regent to take control. But the necessary legislation exists and could, in theory, be utilized.
