Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-lived and longest-reigning British monarch, and she has no plans to step down from the throne.
At the age of 94, Her Majesty has decided that she will remain Queen of the United Kingdom and 15 other Commonwealth realms until her death, according to one royal insider familiar with her plans.
Queen Elizabeth has gone as far as banning the usage of the word abdication around her and considers it a “dirty word,” which implies that Prince Charles will not become King anytime soon.
Katie Nicholl recently did an interview with Vanity Fair, where she shed some light on Elizabeth II’s state of mind.
The writer explained: “She views the word abdication as a dirty word never to be uttered in her presence and plans to serve until her death.”
The Queen, the longest-serving female head of state in world history, has taken that decision because her sense of duty and service to the British people is rooted deep in her soul.
According to the royal author, Queen Elizabeth would “never abdicate because it is simply not in her DNA to abandon her people or duty.”
Rumors were running rampant, claiming that the Queen was looking forward to abdicating the throne in April of 2021 on her 95th birthday.
The monarch squashed the abdication chatter with the announcement that she will be celebrating her Platinum Jubilee in 2022.
Sources close to the royal family revealed that the Queen is knee-deep involved with the planning of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
The Queen will be the first British monarch to have reigned for 70 years. She has even decided to water down her 95th birthday next year and is “saving the celebrations” for her jubilee.
The royals will mark the huge milestone with a four-day lavish Hollywood-inspired event from June 2-5.
Organizers are planning impressive and traditional pageantry, many ceremonies, and fancy displays using the latest technologies.
A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “The Platinum Jubilee offers an opportunity for the Queen to express her thanks for the support and loyalty Her Majesty has received throughout her reign. The Queen hopes that as many people as possible will have the opportunity to join the celebrations.”
The Royal Household and Department for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport are jointly arranging the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden added: “Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee will be a truly historic moment – and one that deserves a celebration to remember. We can all look forward to a special, four-day Jubilee weekend when we will put on a spectacular, once-in-a-generation show that mixes the best of British ceremonial splendor with cutting edge art and technology. It will bring the entire nation and the Commonwealth together in a fitting tribute to Her Majesty’s reign.”
Queen Elizabeth seems to appreciate her role in the history of her country.
