Queen Elizabeth Will Apparently Pass The Throne Down To Prince Charles As Soon As Next Year

Her reign first began after the death of her father in 1952

As Queen Elizabeth II begins her 68th year on the throne, it looks like she may be stepping down when she reaches 95-years-old to hand over her titles to her son, Prince Charles.

Speaking to True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beatroyal biographer Robert Jobson said: “I still firmly believe when the Queen becomes 95, that she will step down.”

Newsweek‘s royal reporter Jack Royston also added: “I think she won’t want to. But realistically she will get to a point where she has handed over everything to Charles and then how do you look your son in the eye and tell him he is not going to be King?”

Due to celebrate her 95th birthday in April 2021, Queen Elizabeth’s step back from the monarchy may take place within the next six months.

Becoming the Queen of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland in 1952, Elizabeth II had to take the throne after the sudden death of her father, King George VI.

With her coronation taking place at Westminster Abbey on June 2, 1953, she is now the longest-reigning monarch in British history and still carries out royal engagements, even during the pandemic and at 94-years-old.

Jobson also weighed in on another royal family member, Prince Andrew, who’s been in the spotlight (and not for the right reasons).

Jobson admitted that he doubts Her Majesty’s third child will ever return to royal duties, after he disappeared from the public eye following revelations about his entanglement with Jeffrey Epstein.

“Can he come back from this? No. No way can he come back from this,” Jobson said.

“He has to be cleared by the FBI. If he goes over there, he opens himself to a large can of worms. Whatever he was doing at the parties was unsavory.”

If Jobson is correct, there looks to be some monumental changes coming to the royal family in the near future.
