Queen Elizabeth II did not become the longest-reigning British monarch in history by accident — she has certain ways of doing things, and many are disappointed that Prince Charles has failed to follow in his mother’s footsteps.
After 68 years on the job, the Queen is known for keeping her thoughts to herself.
Her Majesty is politically neutral, does not vote, and keeps her nose out of controversial social issues such as racism and sexism. Even when the Amazon forest was on fire, Queen Elizabeth stayed mum on climate change.
Compared to the future King of England, who is known to talk about economic issues and has a passion for the topic of global warming.
In a new interview, royal author Clive Irving explained that Prince Charles reveals too much.
The author of The Last Queen: Elizabeth II’s Seventy Year Battle to Save the House of Windsor told the Express: “Charles and the Queen are very different in nature and manner.”
He added: “It’s a very vivid difference. You’ve got the Queen, who has always succeeded in concealing what she really thinks about anything. And Charles, whom we know almost too much, I feel we know more than we need to know about Charles.”
Recently, Charles delivered a speech where he addressed climate change, the British and German economies in the midst of the pandemic.
Charles said the following while standing in front of the German parliament: “We must stand alongside each other in determined defense of the future we owe our children and our grandchildren. The challenges to that future are manifest, whether from this dreadful pandemic or from the existential threat to our planet and our way of life from climate change.”
The heir apparent added: “As our countries begin this new chapter in our long history, let us reaffirm our bond for the years ahead. And let us reflect on all that we have been through together and all that we have learned.”
Elizabeth II’s oldest son went on to say: “Our histories bind us tightly together and our destinies, although each our own to forge, are interdependent to a considerable degree,”
Former royal butler Paul Burrell is urging the Queen to take things a step further by saying Charles has too much baggage and Prince William should take his place.
While on Vicky Pattison‘s podcast, The Secret To, Burrell also pointed to Charles’s age as a reason for him to step aside.
Pattison added: “I quite want to see Prince William as King.”
Burell replied by: “Well, it is the Prince of Wales’s birthright, of course, to become King. He has waited all his life to do that job. His ex-wife Princess Diana said she did not think he would ever be King because that job would give him too many limitations.”
The Queen is an institutionalist, so it is unlikely that she will change the order of things, some observers say.
