Queen Elizabeth, the longest-serving Monarch of Britain, might give up her throne to her son Prince Charles. The royal experts asserted that the process of transferring the authorities to Prince Charles is underway and would be completed within two years when Queen turns 95.

They have attributed Queen’s decision to hand over her responsibilities to Princes Charles to an incurable disease, adding that in such circumstances Queen would have no option but to delegate the throne to Charles before she abdicates or passes away.
Queen Elizabeth, reign spans for 66 years and counting, sparked worry among her followers when she was photographed with a large purple bruise on her hand while shaking hands with King Abdullah and Queen Rania of Jordan. Doctors have since said the bruise was most likely caused by a minor injury as people whose age are more prone to bruising.
There is talk that when she reaches 95 in a couple of years she may slow down and possibly the Regency Act will be brought in.
Her health condition encouraged a debate on media regarding the transfer of power and the fate of monarchy if the ruler contracts diseases like dementia, ALS or any other like that.
Queen Elizabeth who was always under the opinion that she would not abdicate and that her role as Queen is a life-long commitment, might be forced to give up due to health reasons.
The royal experts are of polarised opinions that if Queen Elizabeth will step down from Monarchy, or will she appoint Prince Charles, as her regent keeping executive powers with herself.
Sorry Prince Charles, Queen Elizabeth is hanging on to the throne for a little while longer. https://t.co/LEfNmK91UZ

Royal expert Moniek Bloks asserted, “I think if anything happens, it’s more likely she’ll make Charles regent instead of completely abdicating.”
Another expert claimed that this will happen in two years when Queen turns 95.
Royal author Phil Dampier claimed that “There is talk that when she reaches 95 in a couple of years she may slow down and possibly the Regency Act will be brought in.” Adding that, “She will still be Queen but Prince Charles will take over most of the duties.”
He informed that Prince Charles has already started taking over her responsibilities, his presence at Commonwealth and the state opening at the parliament is symbolic of his ascension to a higher post. He also accompanied Queen to her trips to New Zealand and Australia.
Regent means a person is appointed to administer a state because the monarch is a minor or is absent or incapacitated. That means Charles would function as Prince regent for Queen Elizabeth II. For Prince Charles to fill in for his mother, he must receive the consent from Philip, along with the Lord Chancellor, the Speaker of the House of Commons, the Lord Chief Justice of England, and the Master of the Rolls who will pass Regency Act.
