Prince Charles: patient King in waiting

The upcoming third season of the popular British TV mini-series The Crown will commemorate the 1969 investiture of Prince Charles as heir to the throne, a ceremony that anticipates coronation – the sanctification of the British sovereign. Last week, HRH Queen Elizabeth hosted a celebration for Prince Charles on the 50th anniversary of his investiture, as a personal, Constitutional and cultural statement.

For more than a millennium the monarchy has been the cornerstone of British culture, and the continuity of ancient traditions is a counterweight to the modern tendency to despise the past and reinvent the culture according to the whim of the moment. The monarchy itself isn’t immune to cultural fads. Last week, for example, Vanity Fair reported that the Duchess of Sussex, Megan Markle, planned to raise the child she is expecting with the Queen’s grandson Harry as “gender fluid.”

The palace rarely responds to rumors but it has been at full throttle to squelch a story it considers inimical to the character of the monarchy. There must be no ambiguity about the gender of a child who might conceivably become the British sovereign one day.

2. Well if people

are at all realistic about the succession, aside from some huge tragedy involving the other members of the Royal family, there's little chance that Harry and Megan's child would gain the throne.

There are like five potential rulers ahead of this child, so


But yeah...poor Charles. I don't know how much or how little he wants to be King, but he's got to have mixed feelings at this point.


PS...eagerly awaiting the release of the third season of The Crown.

3. I wonder how badly Charles will screw this up...

He is known for being barking moonbat crazy. He kowtows to muslims and even wore arabic clothing for a while...he may well be a convert.

Not rulers, but heads of state.

5. The British ( German ) Monarchy is no longer relevant.

6. As a ruling body...

they likely are irrelevant, but as a form of entertainment, they still manage to deliver the goods
