Does this suggest Prince Charles WILL hand the crown to Prince William and make him king?


Prince Charles may never be king, according to the latest odds.

Odds give the Duke of Cambridge an outside chance of usurping the throne.

Bookies Betway have it at 11/2 that Prince Charles will hand down his crown to his eldest son Prince William, 34.

The online bookmaker currently makes the Prince of Wales odds-on at 1/10 to become the 42nd monarch.

However, odds of 11/2 for Wills to take the throne suggest there’s a chance the crown may be passed on.

This means a bet of £10 on Prince William to get made the next monarch would get you £65.

Rumours of the Queen’s planned abdication have resurfaced in recent weeks, though the leading online bookmaker thinks she’ll see out the next two years at least. 

It’s 25/1 for Her Majesty to abdicate in 2017 and a slightly shorter, but still unlikely, 20/1 for Elizabeth to hand over the crown in 2018.

Betway’s Alan Alger, said: “Although Prince Charles appears to be nailed on at 1/10 to be crowned the oldest-ever UK monarch, we’re certainly not ruling out William taking the throne next at 11/2.

“Ongoing whispers of Charles’ plans to step aside have left Prince William at 11/2 to be the next King, while her Majesty is 25/1 to hang up her crown and abdicate in 2017.”

It was claimed that the long-serving monarch, 91, is said to have told her trusted circle that she will step down age 95.

This would mean that the Regency Act would come into force.

Royal commentator, biographer and former Daily Express correspondent Robert Jobson said: “They have all confirmed that a regency with Charles taking the lead is now, at the very least, a real possibility.”

But would the public accept Camilla, Charles’ second wife, as queen?

A shocking Sunday Express poll has found that the majority of Britain will not accept Camilla becoming Queen.

As many as 67 per cent of those questioned opposed this move and only 19 per cent believed she is fit for the role.
