Hello and welcome to the forums. You'll certainly obtain a lot of information here about your area of interests. As far as Prince Charles abdicating in place of his son, abdication is not an action generally favored in the BRF and unless Charles was of great age, infirmed or incapable when he ascends the throne, I doubt that he'd give way in favor of William. IMO, I'm sure he'd want his years of tenaciously waiting for the crown to be rewarded and abdication would also cause William to come to the throne sooner than I'm sure he expected or is prepared to. But no one can ever predict what anyone will do under a particular set of circumstances, so that remains to be seen. In any case, I look forward to seeing you here.
