Since Queen Elizabeth has reached the age of 90, royal fans have been muttering about her potential retirement. And who can blame them? Her Majesty has established herself as a living legend now that she has the longest reign in British history. Even more amazing is how many people still love her.
Nobody knows for sure why Queen Elizabeth has not yet decided to retire. Some speculate that it is because she is so healthy. Others wonder if she trusts that her son, Prince Charles, will take over. And then there’s the most logical reason – maybe she just doesn’t want it.
But now that Queen Elizabeth’s husband, Prince Philip, is officially retired, rumors about the Queen’s resignation are re-circulating. There is really a sad reason why the queen could finally retire after all this time.
Royal experts think Queen Elizabeth will step down when Prince Philip dies
Although Queen Elizabeth is fairly healthy and comes from a long line of good genes, no one can live forever. And now that her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, 97 years old and retired, painful but necessary realities are coming to light.
As Royal Expert Duncan Larcombe explained to The Royal Box: “Many people think that maybe [Queen Elizabeth] would resign as soon as her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, died … She has always been with him, by her side and now he is retired. “
Some speculate that the queen would like to spend her remaining years with her husband, not a royal act. If not, they think she will at least retire after his death.
Spectators wonder if the queen is lonely
Sometimes the lonely people in the world are the ones surrounded by the largest crowds. Although Queen Elizabeth has many admiring fans and often spends time with her family, this does not mean that she is sometimes not isolated.
Royal experts pointed out, for example, what ‘lonely’ Her Majesty looked like while riding in the carriage during the celebration of Trooping the Color this summer. Who misses the event? Her husband, Prince Philip, who usually drives her in the carriage.
Queen Elizabeth could reign for another decade
Of course nobody knows exactly how Queen Elizabeth feels, except the prince himself. Even if retirement is possible or even probable, there is just as much a chance that the queen will remain in her post until her last day of life.
Whatever happens, Queen Elizabeth has cemented her place as a huge influence on modern times. She has taken exceptional steps in promoting equality initiatives and giving the royal family an overall positive perspective. In other words, one of the main reasons why we are all so obsessed with the royal family is because of the queen.
We wish her the best in whatever way she chooses, whether it is about retirement or a continuation of her long and prosperous rule.
