Queen Elizabeth II may have been coming there for years, but she has no plans to retire just because she has broken the 90th anniversary.
The beloved queen has been looking after her country for decades and loves her work. Although she certainly has capable heirs in line who can take on the role, she has already informed the world that she will hold onto the throne until her last breath.
That is an impeccable work ethic!
How long has Queen Elizabeth sat on the throne?
Queen Elizabeth II is the longest ruling British prince to sit on the throne. Her journey began technically when her father, King George VI, took on the rich title in 1936. This set up a young Elizabeth as the first in line for the throne. Between her future position and predisposition to care for her country, she began to make progress toward a better United Kingdom when she was just a teenager.
It was not until 1952, at the age of 26, that she would officially change from a princess to a queen. Since becoming a queen, she has won the love of people not only in the UK but all over the world. She is a great patron for many purposes and has raised millions of dollars to build a better place, one cent at a time.
With the people by her side and a healthy daily regime to keep her in top condition, she has managed to retain her place as Her Majesty for 67 years. In three years, she will be celebrating her platinum anniversary at the age of 96.
What happens to the throne after Queen Elizabeth dies?
As the beloved Monarch passes, millions of fans around the world and her loving family will sadden her death. While the family takes the time they need, the government will start using Operation London Bridge. What is that, you ask? OLB is a protocol specially designed for the Queen’s final moments.
Once prominent officials have been updated via secret code words, specific media channels will be driven to adjust their programming to play documentaries and get rid of comic scenes. When the preparations are complete, a public funeral is held to make everyone mourn together. Royalists are sure that the queen’s funeral will be one of the greatest, given her long rule and undeniable popularity.
Eventually her son, Prince Charles, will officially ascend to his rightful place on the throne … but it may take a while for his coronation if the mourning period must first expire. Fortunately, he has the patience of a saint so that he should be able to stop taking a seat until everyone has offered the queen adieu.
Why won’t Queen Elizabeth give up the throne to Prince Charles?
Poor Prince Charles is already 70 years old. The Queen’s firstborn always knew that he was in line for the throne, but what he probably did not know was that he would not be able to sit in the large comfortable chair until he was well into his later years. While some find it cruel that his mother has kept the role to herself for all those years, she has a pretty important reason.
The queen not only looks at her “job” as sworn in office; she looks like she rules as an “incarnation.” When she took her oath at Westminster Abbey, she said she would rule, “all days of my life.”
Others may have taken her words lightly, but it is clear that the simple line has become a decree for Her Majesty. She’s not going to go against her word, because that’s exactly the type of great woman that is Queen Elizabeth II!
As the author of The Diana Chronicles told CBS: “She will not resign because she does not believe this is about an office, but she thinks it is an incarnation. She does not walk to the office. The queen dies like queen in her bed. “
While she is planning to go out fighting, there is a fancy act entitled the Regency Act that could give Prince Charles the title of Prince Regent. The act, which starts on April 21, 2021, passes on the responsibilities and roles to him while his mother remains the monarch.
So while Prince Charles has to wait until his amazing mother continues to take over the title completely, at least he will get some of that power when she turns 95. Looks like all his patience will somehow pay off!
