The Queen remained engaged in her role for almost 70 years and has continued to dutifully fulfill her commitment despite her age and a series of crises that have rocked the royal family in recent years. Prince Charles and Prince William have stepped up and taken on more functions to help Her Majesty continue to deliver on her crucial mantra of ‘being believed’. But although the Queen has signaled her reluctance to abdicate, royal commentator Luisa Ciuni has suggested that she may soon choose to make Charles her regent and relinquish almost all of his duties.
“The role of Prince Charles has passed to his son, William, and his wife. But she does everything else.
“It… keeps her doing whatever she does morning, afternoon, and night.” ”

Ms. Ciuni added: “It will certainly be very difficult to replace it, replacing it in the hearts of the people will be impossible”.
As regent, the Prince of Wales would assume the majority of the Queen’s duties but would still have to wait until Her Majesty’s death to be crowned a full king.
The UK was last placed under a regency during one of George III’s last episodes of illness, forcing his eldest son George Augustus to take over between 1811 and 1820.
The current rules governing the role of a regent were set out in the Regency Acts of 1937, which would allow the Queen to pass the majority of her roles to an appointed member of the royal family.

“I think it’s highly unlikely that she will abdicate. “
Only 21 years old, the Queen is pledged to stay on the throne for as long as she lives – sending a clear signal to British and Commonwealth citizens that she would not trigger a new constitutional crisis like her uncle, Edward VIII , had done during his abdication in 1937.
Her Majesty said, “I can do my solemn act of dedication with an entire Empire listening. I would like to make this dedication now. It’s very simple.
“I declare before you all that my whole life, whether long or short, will be devoted to your service and to the service of our great Imperial family to which we all belong.
“But I will not have the strength to carry out this resolution alone if you do not join in with me, as I now invite you to do: I know your support will be unwavering.” May God help me honor my wish, and God bless you all who are willing to participate. ”
