The marriage of Prince Willam and Kate Middleton captured the imagination of the public in a way that hadn’t been done since his late mother, Diana, became a royal in 1981.
However, it now seems very unlikely that Prince William will ever become King William.
After the Queen’s illness at Christmas, concerns were raised for her health and many began speculating on what her son Charles will be like on the throne when she passes away.
Controversially, Dr. Bob Morris, of University College London’s Constitution Unit, has claimed that he believes Charles will be the one to destroy the British monarchy!
In comments that will appal royalists, he told The Daily Star that the fate of the thousand-year-old institution will be ‘impossible to predict’.
His concern stems from Charles’ many passion projects like farming, the environment and social deprivation.
The royal family is banned from getting involved in the government since 1688 and Morris is convinced that Charles will not be able to remain ‘neurtral’.
‘As King he would have the traditional rights to be consulted, to encourage and to warn,’ he said.
‘Should a King seek to exceed these traditional duties, for example by publicly opposing his government’s policies, then an impasse could ensue,’ he warned.
He foresees a Brexit-style Yes/No referendum on whether or not the monarchy should be abolished and if that happened, what would it mean for Will, Kate, Harry and Meghan?
Not to mention the next adorable generation?
Only time will tell.
