Experts Weigh In On Whether King Charles Could Take A Cue From The Danish Queen and Abdicate

Experts Weigh In On Whether King Charles Could Take A Cue From The Danish Queen and AbdicateThe abdication of Queen Margrethe of Denmark has opened up the topic about whether King Charles may consider abdicating to make way for his younger and more modern son Prince William.

King Charles,  Was Crowned Just A Few Months Back, After Becoming The Longest Heir In-Waiting In History.

His ceremony was poignant, came with all the pomp and pageantry that that type of historic occasion aspires for, and opened up discussions about religious and racial inequalities in Britain. In fact, Charles used the ceremony to bring all of Britain together, regardless of faith or color.

He still reportedly has a lot on his mind when it comes to his status, but experts are convinced he may step down if his health is ever threatened. Here’s what they’re saying.

King Charles Might Step Down In “Ten Years,” Royal Expert Claims

On New Year’s Eve, Denmark’s Queen Margrethe, 83, surprised the world when she announced her intention to abdicate after 52 years of service. This decision, of course, was influenced by her recent surgery.

“The surgery naturally gave rise to thinking about the future – whether the time had come to leave the responsibility to the next generation. I have decided that now is the right time. On 14 January 2024 – 52 years after I succeeded my beloved father – I will step down as queen of Denmark,” she said in the televised announcement.

Her son Prince Frederik and his wife, Princess Mary, will be taking over.

Royal biographer Phil Dampier believes Charles could be inspired by this move, rather than seeing it to the very end like his mother did.

“It must make you wonder if in five or ten years’ time King Charles might think about doing the same if his health suffers or he just thinks it is a good time to pass on to William and Kate while they are still young,” Dampier told MailOnline.

“Our late Queen would never abdicate because of what happened in 1936 when her uncle abdicated and her father came to the throne. But times change.”

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams also echoed these thoughts, saying that Charles might understand why Margrethe viewed an “aging” monarch bad for the institution.
