All hail William and Kate! Just after Queen Elizabeth became the longest-reigning British monarch on Sept. 9, a report claims that she wants to pass the throne on. But in an unexpected turn of events, it looks like Prince William and Kate Middleton might be the ones taking it!
Could Kate Middleton, 33, and Prince William, 33, already be crowned King and Queen? According to a new report, that’s exactly what Queen Elizabeth II, 89, wants! The Queen has decided it’s time to give up the throne just after claiming the longest reign of the British monarch. Much to everyone’s surprise, she apparently wants to skip right over her son Prince Charles and give the throne to Kate and William! Read on for more details!
The Queen has made history once and she’s ready to do it again — but that doesn’t mean her decision to completely skip an heir is any less shocking. In fact, she made such a surprising choice, the Queen even caught Will and Kate off guard!
“They’re stunned,” a palace source told OK! magazine. “The idea of having Charles step aside for the good of the monarchy had been whispered about, but they never believed it would happen…When Kate found out, the first thing she did was call her mum and dad. They are absolutely overwhelmed.”
While it may seem like a risky move to pass the title on to a pair of 33-year-olds, it’s not hard to blame the Queen for her supposed decision considering how much their country and the world loves William and Kate — not to mention their adorable children Prince George and Princess Charlotte! Plus, the Queen herself was only 25 when she took the throne, so of course she trusts Will and Kate!
Although this report may make people around the world happy, the Queen’s insistence to skip Charles has apparently been tough for him and his wife, Camilla, to handle. But according to the royal insider, Charles “begrudgingly understands why it’s best for the crown to skip a generation, for the sake of keeping the royal family relevant and vital.”
It’s great that Charles can hear his mother out! If the report is true and the Queen does pass the throne to Will and Kate, the coronation will take place shortly following the Queen’s 90’s birthday next April. We think William and Kate would make an amazing King and Queen, so we can only hope that what the Queen reportedly wants is what she’s really insisting!
