There is no doubt that Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton have become the face of the British monarchy. Their young kids George and Charlotte are winning everyone’s hearts, their royal tours are a visual spectacle and the next step logically would be to become the King and Queen of Britain.
But, can that really happen? Well, after all Prince Charles is the next in line to the throne. The 68-year-old royal and his wife Camilla will assume the throne after the current monarch but this doesn’t mean that people aren’t wondering if Prince William can become the next King.
In fact, if the latest news is true, Prince William may just wear the crown. The Queen decided to pass on the royal baton to her grandson and believes that Prince William and his wife can restore some of the faith in the ancient institution.
According to a source, the Queen believes the young couple really has a power to curate a new image for the royal family.
“With all the drama that has surrounded the royal family over recent decades, Elizabeth realizes the monarchy no longer has the respect and power it once had,” the source said.
The source said that the even though such a decision would dent the father-son relationship, the royals understand that duty comes always first. Since the Queen made her decision known, their relationship already has been a bit strained but they’re moving past it.
