Queen Elizabeth Issues Statement Addressing Retirement Rumors

Share

"The Prince of Wales is fundamentally running the family now".

A statement from Clarence House, Charles's London palace and office, denied the Queen has retirement in mind or even that there have been discussions about it. "There are no plans for any change in arrangements at the age of 95 - or any other age", the spokesman says.

This remarkable fact is a testament to Queen Elizabeth's stamina as Britain's longest reigning monarch.

However, in the Prince of Wales 2018 biography "In Charles at Seventy", the royal biographer Robert Jobson stated that Her Majesty will start a period of regency if she is still alive when she turns 95. And Prince Andrew's longtime friendship with Jeffrey Epstein was uncovered, which has become such a scandal that he's been forced to step back from his royal duties. "Her Majesty is in her nineties and can understandably only do so much", a source told the publication, who also reminded 95 was the same age that Prince Philip retired from royal duties.

Though Meghan and Harry have been on the queen's radar, and William's alleged affair was an unfortunate scratch on the royal reputation (it appears now, though, that the rumors were untrue), nothing has shaken the royal family this year quite like Andrew's drama.

In response to the new claims against Prince Andrew, a palace spokeswoman said the allegations are "not something we would comment on".

Following afternoon tea or a walk with her dogs at Sandringham (where the Queen traditionally stays over Christmas), the Queen, 93, will choose her look for the evening ahead.

"Let's get off our knees and abolish the monarchy", read the headline on columnist Suzanne Moore's piece in The Guardian last month. "This was the moment when Charles stepped up as Prince Regent, the Shadow King".

United Kingdom based newspapers also reported that it was Charles the Prince of Wales who pushed his mother to strip Andrew of his royal duties.

Instead, Kate Middleton said that Princess Charlotte and Prince George woke up "very early" on the 25th of December to open their presents.

The affiliate stated the Prince's "sexual urge for food" was on full show at one social gathering held within the late 90s - hosted by a British artwork seller and his "unique overseas spouse" - the place he would reportedly lie again and permit the fashions to take a seat on his lap.
