Worth noting that life expectancy was also shorter back then, though this was likely less visible at higher ages than at lower ages due to the extremely high infant and childhood mortality back then. Someone who was 56 would statistically on average I presume have lived for an additional 10 or 15 years back then.

I would be shocked if Elizabeth II abdicated; mildly surprised if Charles does; but I expect William will. I may not be around to see if my prophecy comes true...

Why William? I thought that Charles would be more likely to abdicate than William, though probably not very likely either since he's already been eyeing the British throne for almost 70 years by this point in time!
