50 Years from now I think William will still be king - he will only be 75 afterall.

In 100 years the monarch will be someone not yet born.

Unless something really drastic happens, such as a constitutional crisis pitting monarch against parliament I don't think the British people will get rid of the monarchy.

I don't think they will actually be monarchs of most of the countries overseas though, such as Australia. I suspect that Australia will be a republic within the next 5 - 10 years (as once the current PM retires or is defeated in an election we will have another referendum on the issue and a model will be put to the people that they can agree with). I wouldn't be surprised if the monarch stops being monarch of Australia before the Queen's 60 Jubilee.

I Wouldnt be surprised if Charles was on the Thone by mid Summer next year (Remember Queen Victoria passed at 81) with his Coronation early Spring 2008 I Dont think theyll ever get rid of it .

With all the changes taking place in Europe, do you really think there will be a monarchy anywhere?

I am just wondering since the population is dwindling, will there be anyone left to pay for it?

I hope so, because I really want to be 90 years old and still checking out the fashion!

I think the UK is the last country, that will get rid of their monarchy. Even with all the scandals, aren't they very much loved? It's a part of the Brittish identity and tradition. However, far away former colonies like Canada and Australia, and even the near-by North Ireland, might very well cut ties with the Brittish crown.

I think Tony Blair has tried to marginalise the monarchy and detach Britain from its heritage to an extent. If his successor continues down the same road, the monarchy could become quite irrelevant to younger people, and that would make it vulnerable.

Hasn't Blair taken the Queen out of government in some respects? It seems like the jails are no longer in her name, etc., I think! Along with some other things....

I deeply respect Queen Elizabeth and if the monarchy goes, I hope she is resting in peace by then. Hopefully, not for 10 years or so yet!

That's a long time to speculate about. In 1900 no one suspected that less than 20 years later most crowns in Europe would be history. In 1917 who would have forseen the fall of the Soviet Union and the domino effect it produced in the 1990's. Even the revival of monarchic ideas in Russia and other former comunist countries is still amazing to watch.
The monarchy will depend, like all forms of government, on the talent of its 'stars' to keep out of trouble and yet, continue fascinating the news media and the public. Like all things in life, the moment they turn boring we move into the next bright thing that comes along.
As long as the world itself remains in a state of peace and we don't have in this century anything like WW I or WW II, governments we have now will still be around...I hope.

I don't think there will be a monarchy in Spain 50 years from now, in Spain the power of the monarchy goes pretty much on the Kings and the Princes of Asturias simply don't have "it", I don't know how to explain it but I believe they don't have what it takes to keep the monarchy running...

Queen Elisabeth sure doesn't have to worry! I would worry more about Charles then. But seriously, I can almost guarantee, that there still will be a Brittish monarchy in year 2106.

The UK will still be a monarchy in 100 years time unless a major event occurs and the people turn against the royal family. In Australia's case I'm sure Australia will be a republic. As soon as a model is presented which is easy to understand and workable I'm sure it will be adopted.

I think the monarchy will survive, but it is likely to be much diminshed to a mere symbol with a written constitution defining the executive powers of the Government.

I Think the first thing Britian needs to do is get rid of the Labour Party (for now anyway) . Although I Hope Gordon Brown Gets the Job of P.M. (I Think hes a strong Royalist) I Think Beatrice, Eugenie or Gabriella would make a fine Queen its too Bad Prince Michael cant be King he seems like hed be very good Does anybody think theirs the smallest chance we could see Henry of Wales Become Henry IX or would that be to much of a schock for The U.K. Could he take his role seriously. Thanks in Advance.

I think there's a small chance that Harry could become King. After all it's possible that something unexpected and horrible could happen to William. Would Harry take the job seriously I'm not sure.

Anything's possible, lise but I surely hope something tragic doesn't befall William or anyone for that matter.

I think there will still be a monarchy in all present monarchies. With an exception for Belgium. Not that it has anything to do with Philippe, Mathilde and their daugther Elisabeth: Belgium will cease to exist and fall apart.

Flanders and Wallonia will become independent states, ā la the velvet separation of former Czechoslovakia into the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Or Flanders will join the Netherlands, the povince of Luxembourg (now part of Wallonia) will join the neighbouring Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the rest of Wallonia (Ličge, Namur, Hainaut) willl join France.

Just a reminder that this is a thread about the British monarchy in particular. Discussions about the future of monarchies in general would be best in Royal Chit Chat.
