JUST CURIOUS

PLEASE ENLARGE I just read this.
Funny how some silly things just keeping running thru your mind...and you just want an opinion on it...well here is a question that I have pondered a number of times...
I had often wondered ....since Prince William seems to be much brighter and have a lot more "on the ball " than his Father ...would/could QUEEN ELIZABETH see to it that WILLIAM becomes KING instead.... after her death ?

WHAT DO YOU ALL THINK ?

JUST CURIOUS,
Rose

Prince William should be King.........I don't know if he will be.

I think william looks so much like dianna that the queen may think of dianna every time she sees him and will not put him in power considering she seems to blame his mother for alot of dissension among the ranks in that family , that being said I dont think she will put william in power over his father .

Susan I agree with you.

phonelady, Yes he does look MORE like his dear mother. ( GOOD THING )
I so understand your theory.
But if she TRULY has England's FUTURE welfare at heart... (even after her death,) it would seem like she would want WILLIAM to be KING all the same. JMOPO.
It WILL be interesting to see what happens, but you know her mother lived to be over 100....I may not be around to find out what happens...in fact, I hope I am not, if she remains on the throne that long.
Has a KING or QUEEN ever stepped down because of their age ? .... I don't think so.
But I am sure there must be a time when even SHE would recognize that she is NO LONGER capable of handling the duties of being Queen....were she to live as long as her MOTHER did.
She will soon have reigned as long as Queen VICTORIA did..imagine that !!!

I find queen victoria quite racy for her time and I dont think this queen is that racy but yes hopefully she will realize one day that she is no longer capable of sitting on the throne .

It's funny, I had this exact conversation with my husband the other day and he insisted (in that way that you know you should just let him think he's right as there is no WAY you can get him to see another point of view) that Charles will HAVE to be king as he is next in line. The concept of the Queen making arrangements for it to be passed straight to William seemed to sound like nonsense to him, though I'm certain it can happen. God help us if we end up with Charles as our King, he's far too much like his father if you ask me. At least William has some concept of the real world that the rest of us live in.

I had this LONG comment about all of this..and it disappeared...DANG !

ANYWAY..the "gist of it" was
LONG LIVE :- KING WILLIAM.

He would be MUCH better for England and the WORLD with the gene's his MOTHER passed down to him in the "care factor" department..AND the "real world experience" department.

Thanks for commenting.

The only way for Prince William to become King, would be if Prince Charles abdicated his position to the throne after he is made King.

Rose ~Victorian Rose ~ said...

Thanks Sally....what is your feeling about this...would you like to see that happen ?

No, I believe Charles should become King on the death of his mother, the Queen. William will then become King and his wife will become Queen on the death or abdication of King Charles.
