    in line for the top Royal Job.

    Funny since about 19 I have been saying Prince Charles will never be King, is this about to come true?

    But.....with the impending wedding Of Prince William to Kate Middleton has agian raised the question of wherever it might be for the best for the monarchy if he succeeded his grandmother her majesty Queen Elizabeth II, when she dies.

    The decision to send him back to Oz and Kiwi land, only a tear after his most recent visit-suggests the royal family recognisers he is the monarchy's best chance of hanging on to Antipodes after the Queen dies.

    William young and has the good looks and ease of his late mother, Dianna.

    from the point of view from The Firm, The duke of Edinburgh christened the Royal Family, William is their stare performericon_razz.gif

    And soon to be wife takes well to to royal life, and we take to her, after they marry next month, then talk that the succession ought to jump to William, will only increase.

    Williams brief trip to last year seems to have been to test the waters in the only one of her Majesty's domination's to have held a referendum on dumping her; but we voted her majesty inicon_cool.gif

    But the year leading up to the 1999 vote the Royal family had was reported as having given up as a bad job But....in the decade since Australia decided to stay true to Betty II, as a cheeky pome news paper put it.

    This is all driving the republican movment of Australia nuts, because Williams popularity, is pushing their advancement backwards, and that bloody good for Oz too.

    Anything that will put those whining Australian republicans in their place, and set them retreating is not a bad thing, as they do not but Oz or our flag first. They want to ignore our past and heritage and start off with day 1.

    I recall the night of the day we voted, and I was in a gay pub, and a number of us wheer standing around, talking about the results of the election that we wheer waiting for, many/most where saying tomorrow will be a new day and new country.

    I was the only one saying the referendum would not pass, as the people of Oz do not want it. I was to awaken the next day to find the people of oz, had voted in Her Majesty; good had prevailed.

    Funny thing si. If one had of been wrong, my phone would of rang off it's hook, so they could of told me so. But since one was spot on, it never rang once concerning the issue at hand.icon_rolleyes.gif

    No Oz had voted in her Majesty!

    I read in a book on the Royal Family that Princess Di once cursed Charles during an argument that he would never be king and that it would be her son who succeeds the Queen. It probably will hold true... and she will have had the last word. icon_biggrin.gif

    It's not good to start pick & choosing monarchs (look what happened to the Greek Royal Family for instance) let things be. Charles is kind man & I am sure will make a good King if he makes it. He is a hundred times better then any politician or president & he supports some execellent causes.

    I saw something the other day, which said that it is illegal in GB for the monarch to abdicate. I'm wondering if that a law passed after her uncle ran off with an American actress.

    I agree,and this is a bloody good thing. More justification, as to why Wills should take over when she dies, and save us all.

    There is noicon_eek.gif, because this has always been on the cards, as many a mother has outlived a child.

    But with Prince William at the helm as King, this will take the monarchy into the future too, and Oz as well.

    Long live our Queen.

    One stands corrected!. and I'll correct it too. It is indeed William Wales not Winder. It may not be Windsor until he becomes King.

    But then there is not a perfect soul on Father Earth, we all make mistakes; thanks matey.

    Nah, Prince Charles will be king... not soon thought, but he will be. It would be too much "bad PR" to have him being skipped.

    If he turns out to be too unpopular he could abdicate and give any number of reasons, but he has to be king. And yet, he might turn out to be a more popular king that expected... or not. Anyway, the Queen isn't showing any sign of letting go of the crown, at least not until becoming the longest reigning royal of the UK.

    On the other hand, I don't know that they will be able to hold Australia as part of the realm if the Queen died. It would help if she "retired" and kept an eye over King Charles' shoulder to ease the transition.

    What I would like to see is that Parliament saying that if Prince William has a daughter first, she can be queen even if she has a brother later.

    Good point and the Act of Settlement should be abolished also as it states that catholics cannot become monarch or marry the monarch, as it is in direct contravention of multiple laws in respect of being discriminatory against catholics and is in fact a sectarian statute!

    The Queen has always been clear she will never abdicate, and by rights they can not dump Charles, he is still next in line, and yes he may well abdicate in favour of William, or die first; whatever was to come first; but he is not king yet.

    One did not take it as an attack, its not a debate if he is Windsor or wales, it's a matter of fact he is indeed a Wales, and I was like OMG, I do know that.

    Honestly guys, do we Americans really care about the Royal Family? Now really. I know Connexion is global but it seems it's mainly targets the American demographic. It just seems the media is force feeding us what we should be interested in and telling us what we should like. When has the Royal family ever been relevant in American society?

    Her Majesty has been rooting in faviour, the first born, may it be a he or she should be first in line.

    The King or Queen is also the head of the Church of England, not suitable for a catholic to hold this position, and as an Aussie, I thank good for Henry VIII, who prevented Oz from being under the tyranny of Vatican City, they would never of allowed us the independence we have today. Also for this transaction was to come to pass, the only way it could be done, would be for a protestant being able to be pope.

    Correct with two living Husbands, but she did help save Great Britten; albeit.
