Of course he will reign !!!

Prince of Wales will definetely become a king. At this point in time, it is irrelevant to guess reasons why he may or will not accede to the throne.
I srongly believe that people should let Princess Diana rest in peace finally. If Prince of Wales ever bears responsibliity for ruining his first marriage, it will take place in the next world.

Charles is likely to become King in due course, but we don't know what tomorrow will bring. It certainly is possible The Queen could outlive her son and William would succeed as The Sovereign instead.

In any case, his reign will be relatively short, given The Queen's good health and the likelihood of her reign lasting another 10 years at least.

I agree that Charles' reign is likely to be short, like that of King Edward VII.

Queen Elizabeth II is in excellent health and her mother lived to be 101. It is entirely possible that she will reign another 15-20 years. By that time Charles will be in his 80s or close to it, he's almost 60 now.

On the death of the Queen Charles instantly becomes King and William instantly becomes Duke of Cornwall.

Who contacts whom would depend on who was with the Queen when she died e.g. if she died quietly in her sleep like her father did then the first person to be told would be the Duke of Edinburgh who would arrange for Charles to be contacted - either directly or through a member of staff. Not knowing how Philip would react to the death of his wife is why I say that - some people simply can't make that contact. The same with the other members of the family. If the Queen had been ill for awhile, and therefore the family were there when she died then arrangements would be made to contact the PM and make the appropriate public announcements.

Within a day or so an Accession Council would be held for the new King to accept the government (in days passed this would be a signal for a new election so the handing over of the officials seals of office had real meaning but now it is symbolic). Various people will also swear allegiance to the new king e.g. the new heir, the PM, the Archbiship of Canterbury etc.

There will a ceremony in various parts of the UK (London and Edinburgh) to proclaim the new king.

At some time after that (in the more recent past at least 12 months after the death of the previous monarch) the coronation will take place. The time frame relates to the official end of court mourning, which lasts 12 months and the timing of the death. e.g. Queen Victoria died in January 1901 and Edward VII crowned in August 1902 (was supposed to be June but due to his appendicitis it was delayed), Edward VII died in May 1910 and George V crowned in June 1911, George V died in January 1935 and George VI crowned in May 1937 (date originally scheduled for Edward VII) and George VI died in January 1952 and Elizabeth crowned in June 1953. The coronations appear to take place during the warmer months with the longer days - a consideration for the crowds that gather.

There have been reports that the powers that be want a shorter time between the death of the present Queen and the coronation of Charles but appropriate times do have to be observed so the coronation shouldn't take place less than 6 months after the death but also has to consider the climate in London. If the Queen died today for instance I wouldn't expect the coronation before this time next year but if she died in November this year I could still see a coronation next summer rather than wait until the following summer.

From what I have said you can see that there are no simple direct answers because a lot would depend on the circumstances of the Queen's death.

I think Charles will opt for George. We all know what happened to Charles I, and Charles II? Well, he's got my vote for the most lascivious monarch in British history. Will Charles want to follow in those footsteps. I think not.

So why George? Having eliminated Charles, Arthur is too, well, storybook. And Phillip? I'm not sure that Charles will want to follow in the footsteps of the fellow who launched the Spanish Armada...

As far as this Defender of the Faith title, wasn't it the Pope who gave it to Henry VIII before the whole divorce business? Talk about irony...

If Charles could figure out some way to do so, I think he would convert to something else. He has been quite interested in Orthodoxy in recent years; after all, his grandmother became an Orthodox nun.

I'm not sure though that the British establishment (whoever you want to define that as being) will allow Charles or anyone to tweak the coronation ceremony too much, if at all, including and most especially any part that sets the Monarch as the Supreme Governor of the Church of England.

A couple of Georges were not too beloved or too great Kings as well.
I believe Prince Charles will reign under his own name, that is he will be King Charles III. The 'unfortunate' previous Kings with that name are not that much of an issue, imo. When Princess Elizabeth was naming her eldest son 'Charles', she surely knew all about the history of her ancectors and being an Heir Presumpative, she knew her son would one day become King (by the time it was obvious the King and Queen would not have any more children).

So, I guess it's up to Charles to reform the image of his name as far as preceding monarchs go. Wow, what a responsibility in and of itself!

Don't forget about the future. So I guess there will never be another King Henry.

Charles II was the monarch who presided over the restoration of the monarchy after Oliver Cromwell's little interlude, remember. I don't think he deserves to be remembered simply as the out-of-wedlock father of half the current aristocracy.

It's possible that Charles would have opted for George VII if he'd become king in his younger days. But now he's nearly a senior citizen and has been called Charles for so long, it seems to me to be less likely that he'd change his name to George at this stage in his life.

Oh, but it's so easy to remember, and so hard to forget! Cheers, Elspeth!

Both the Princess of Wales,Countess of Wessex, and even the Duchess of Cornwall are descended from Charles II's illegetimate children.

Yet there is the precedent of Edward VII who was known as Prince Albert Edward throughout his time as Prince of Wales. He chose to be known as King Edward, which surprised many people at the time.

Who knows what Charles will choose. I suspect at this stage he isn't even sure himself.

I think he would chose either his first name Charles and be Charles III, however, I think he might also chose to use George which is one his middle names and becoming George VII. It would not entirely suprise me he chose George in honor of his Grandfather. However, Charles will most likely use first of Charles since he has been HRH The Prince Charles, Prince of Wales for so long.
