Charles always saw the red boxes... as far as I know. He's been a working royal since he was 30 and hte queen alwasy kept him in the loop - and now of course as she is older, he has takne on more of her duties, just leaving her to do what she can do without getting too tired.

I don't think she will ever abdicate but she will more and more rely on her family and especially Charles

I mantain my previous opinion: abdication is not a practical option due to the legal complexity to implement it (involving all the Commonwealth realms), but a regency looks increasingly likely as the Queen gets increasingly frail.

A regency in the United Kingdom, however, is not automatically extended to some Commonwealth realms like Australia or Canada. That is not a major problem because almost all of the royal powers and prerogatives pertaining to those realms can now be exercised by the respective Governor General alone, except, most notably, the power itself to appoint a new Governor General, which is done by royal commission, and the power to establish new national orders and decorations, which can be exercised exclusively by Letters Patent of the monarch as Fons Honorum. That may create some complications f the regency is prolonged.
