Prince Charles needs to get comfortable in his role because Queen Elizabeth II is shutting down all abdication discussions around her.
Several reports circulated online, and they claimed that Her Majesty is stepping down from the throne in April of 2021.
According to royal insiders, that is not going to happen. The Queen will remain the head of the Commonwealth for the rest of her life.
And now that the medical breakthrough that the world was waiting for — a vaccine for the coronavirus — is closer to becoming a reality; she plans to return to work as soon as possible.
Royal aides explained that the 94-year-old monarch has a deep sense of duty, and she meant every word she said in 1947: “I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong.”
Sources from the palace claimed: “We’ve always pointed people to the declaration she made to serve the country for all of her life. There are no discussions that I am aware of relating to a Regency.”
The Queen is said to be optimistic after scientists’ announcement about working to end the pandemic, including Uğur Şahin.
Şahin is the billionaire scientist behind Pfizer and BioNTech’s breakthrough COVID-19 vaccine that is more than 90 percent effective in trials and will be out in a matter of months.
Talking to the UK’s Guardian, the immunologist and physician explained: “If the question is whether we can stop this pandemic with this vaccine, then my answer is: yes, because I believe that even protection only from symptomatic infections will have a dramatic effect.”
The Queen is eager to perform her royal duties once the Covid-19 vaccine is released. Her goal is to become the world’s longest ever serving monarch and take that title from Louis XIV of France, who was on the throne for 72 years.
Earlier this month, Queen Elizabeth joined Prince William at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory at Porton Down near Salisbury to meet with experts working around the clock to find a cure for Covid-19.
She was slammed for not wearing a mask, and her staff responded by telling Mirror Online: “Specific advice on this visit has been sought from the Medical household and relevant parties, and all necessary precautions taken, working closely with Dstl. All Dstl staff have also been involved in the UK’s response to Covid-19, so are well versed in the necessary precautions.”
The Queen seems more determined than ever to do her job.
