Prince Charles may not “abdicate” the throne to give it away to Prince William. Royal biographer Penny Juror claimed that there is “very, very little chance” that Prince William will become the King before Charles. She claimed that the Prince of Wales will be the “best Monarch” this country has ever had since he is preparing for the last 70 years. The abdication is only possible if Prince Charles’s popularity amongst the public deteriorates during the Queen’s death.
Royal biographer Penny Juror told Podcast Royal: “I think there is very, very little chance that it would happen, constitutional Monarchy means our Monarchy is based on hereditary and if you start deciding that you should abdicate for somebody else then you lose the logic, I mean of keeping it within the family.
“I think it is inconceivable that he [Charles] would pass it along.
“As you say, he has been preparing it for a very long time, he would be the best-prepared Monarch this country has ever had. The only way, the only circumstance that I could see a change to that if, at the time of the Queen’s death, he was for whatever reason so unpopular, the public really didn’t want him but I think that is very, very unlikely.”
Jonathan Sacerdoti told Express.co.uk: “I don’t think there’s a strong argument for it and I think that Prince Charles will be a different kind of monarch to his mother and William will be a different kind of monarch to his father and grandmother.
JUST IN: ‘He’s terrified!’ Prince Charles ‘dreading’ becoming King
“I think there is no chance that Prince Charles will be King for as long as his mother.
“It’s just statistically and mathematically impossible.
“It will be a very different reign in just that respect.
“But I don’t see why he should pass the crown downwards and I don’t think that would be desirable from anyone’s point of view. He’ll bring to the role his own agenda.

The unit states: “Under common law, Prince Charles will automatically become King the moment the Queen dies.
“Prince William could only become King if Prince Charles chose to abdicate.
“That would require legislation, as happened with the Declaration of Abdication Act 1936.
“The line of succession is regulated by Parliament (as in the Act of Succession 1700, and the Succession to the Crown Act 2013); it can be changed only by Parliament and cannot be unilaterally altered by the Monarch.”
