Absolutely not! She once said she will be Queen 'until the bitter end', so Charlie you just have to wait. :p

The only way she could be retired is if she was incapacitated mentally, and if we remember the long and productive life of her vivacious mother, the Queen Mum, we have to tell Charlie and Camilla that his mom won't croak until she has reached at least a 100 years old. :)

I wouldnt count on her mothers longevity to guess how long the Queen will live. The Queen has lived a far more stressfull life than the Queen Mum. We do really take for granted the longevity in the family. It might not last and the Queen, god forbid, could croke tomorrow.

Barring a sudden accident, The Queen's health and stamina is excellent and it is highly likely, having reached a very healthy 80 years old, that she still has many years of service to give as the Sovereign.

I'm sure her traveling for state visits will dramatically decline, but she certainly will continue her duties as Head of State and her good works in the UK. She is not going to sit around and let Charles or her other children assume too many of her duties for as long as she is able to carry them out.

I can’t image that Queen Elizabeth will ever retire anytime soon. I don’t want her to retire from being the queen of England.

She won't abdicate.

She will give some of her more public duties to Charles, who has been doing quite a few for her now anyway e.g. investitures.

The reading of the boxes, signing legislation and audiences with the PM she will continue doing until her dying breath.

How long she will live? Only God knows and he will take her when he is ready and not before.

Then I too will join in a chorus of God Save the King (Charles III).

HM The Queen

I Believe that Her Majesty takes Her Oath, taken at Her coronation, very seriously and She has absolutely no intention of retiring.

GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!!!

Is an Abdication coming up?????

I have read in three magazines in the past weeks about a rumour that Queen Elizabeth would be preparing the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth to an abdication. This is due to the fact that The Queen is giving her son, Prince of Wales more and more Official Engagments on her behalf and some Official State Visits to the Prince of Wales. Do you think that an upcoming abdication is to be expected?

I honestly don't think an abdication will ever happen since she has basically promised to serve her country till the day she dies. I think Prince Charles is getting more official engagments simply because the Queen is not getting any younger and so can't make all the engagements and trips she would like to and this would also be good preparation for him when/if he becomes king.

The Queen will never abdicate. She takes her oath to serve as the Sovereign for life very seriously. Her health and stamina remain excellent and she will continue to carry out as many of her duties as her health allows.

The Prince of Wales and other members of the royal family will certainly increase their workloads on behalf of The Queen as she gets older.

i also don't think the queen will abdicate. she is very professional and her commitment to the country is great. moreover, the wedding of the prince of wales with camilla is quite recent and i think the queen may think it's good to give the duchess some more time to adjust (it's not even a year since she married and since she started her role as princess, not enough time to form her as a queen consort).

Just my thoughts. The Queen is not going to abdicate. When Queen Juliana of the Netherlands abdicated she said something like 'Typical Dutch' (I don't recall the exact words, but it was something like that), so a lady who speaks such firm language is not likely to abdicate soon, if at all... :)

What magazines were these articles in?

I have to agree with everyone else here--Queen Elizabeth won't abdicate.
