    So I am reading that something is going on and staff has been summoned to the Palace. Rumours are it is HRH Prince Philip. Anyone heard anything?

    Some French media outlet reported Phil passed but denied by the palace.

    Either an odd hoax, presumptuous reporting, or the French reporter acting on rumours and hearsay over official Comms.

    I guess we will soon find out!

    Prince Philip will no longer be carrying out public engagements from Autumn. This is an official announcement from Buckingham Palace.

    Remarkable that they continue to do so many engagements in their 90's.

    I am a huge fan of our Royal Family... tho I do hope the crown skips straight to WIlliam

    A few of the commonwealth countries such as Canada and Australia plan to give up the Queen as the head of state when the Queen gives up the crown. I think it would go a long way to salvage that relationship with those countries if William is made King, though I don't foresee Charles wanting to do that somehow....

    Excuse me but Charles is just a few weeks younger than me ! ;):)
    I personally think he'd be a great King and admire his ethics but not so sure about Camilla as Queen ! Although she'd be known as the King's Consort wouldn't she?

    Because at his age, to take on what she has been use to doing nearly all her life is a different thing, fresh younger blood could be better for the country.

    Of course, otherwise we would have two monarchs.
