The time has finally come. This generation will be able to see Queen Elizabeth II pass the throne to Prince Charles.
The Prince of Wales jetted back from New Zealand after hi tour to encourage conservation and sustainability of the environment. As expected, the heir to the throne head straight to Prince Philip in Sandringham to discuss the issues surrounding Prince Andrew.
The two royals reportedly discussed and focused on the Duke of York's ties with the now-deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Aside from letting out his frustration over the controversial revelations by his brother, Prince Charles also took the time to talk about the forthcoming retirement of Queen Elizabeth II and his preparations to become the king.
People called him the "shadow King" for now after British biographer Robert Lacey exclusively told the Times of London that Prince Charles and Prince William convinced the Queen to get rid of Prince Andrew.
Since he already started his role as the next King, royal watchers believe that they will now see him more in royal affairs while Queen Elizabeth II spends her remaining time as the Queen of the monarchy.
Prince Philip withdrew from his royal duties at the age of 95. Queen Elizabeth will turn 95 in 2021, the year which can also possibly mark the transition of the monarch.
According to The Sun, Her Royal Highness may use the remaining months to prepare Prince Charles to become Prince Regent.
A source also divulged in the same report that the scandal about Prince Andrews's ties with Epstein gave the Prince of Wales a chance to step into the light and prove that he can run the palace.
Prince Charles also has 600 engagements per year. With this fact alone, royal watchers thought that the heir to the throne has prepared himself since day one and let himself to learn more about the monarchy alone.
Prince Charles Starting To Be a King
The Prince of Wales still has 18 months before he becomes the new King of the monarchy, but he already showed his power to Prince Andrew.
According to Telegraph U.K., sources revealed that Prince Charles is enraged after watching the Duke of York's BBC interview on his involvement with Jeffrey Epstein.
Prince Charles remained silent about the issues until now. Even the staff who accompanied him kept their lips shut throughout the tour.
But since he already started to open up about the issue to his father, Prince Philip, watchers expect him to finally meet his brother anytime soon.
The two never established a good and close relationship with each other since the very beginning, and they grew further apart when Prince Charles announced in 2012 his "future vision" of re-establishinh the monarchy by shutting out its wider members.
Once he becomes king, he would only be highlighting the works by those closer to the throne -- which include the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Cornwall. This vision would also slash down the number of working royals to reduce the royal family's costs.
Now that Prince Andrew has stepped down from his duties and Prince Charles already planning on getting rid of most of the royal family members, there should be a massive change in the monarchy in the near future.
