    I just saw this video. Quite illuminating. I had no idea that Her Majesty has such an impact on the world.

    Why would they have to print new currency?
    Washington has been dead for awhile too, and we still see his face just about every day.

    Is there some law that they have to immediately reprint with the new monarch's picture?

    In commonwealth countries the Queen is the titular head of state and technically "owns/issues" all the currency. So yes, they would have to immediately update and issue new currency featuring the new monarch although I believe the old currency is still considered "valid" by custom. The entire Monarchy system and how it relates to the former empire is a huge hodgepodge of laws and accepted custom that has the weight of law in commonwealth courts.

    Here's a good likeness of the future King to put on the Pound note.

    If her Majesty was smart, she would pass over Charles and designate Prince William king. England needs a young, hip couple to lead the way.

    Isn't he the one the other day saying the world population was too big, effecting the hunting in Africa??

    What's he want to do have open season on humans?

    I think all the Royals are nuts. :crazy:

    I think she made an oath to the people to be their queen every day of her life.

    I think Charles and his behavior had damaged the allure of the royals. I read something about how the Queen is grooming the grandsons so they can undo Charles' influence. I think it had something to do with the way he treated Diana. Plus, Charles is a loony leftist, and drinks the MMGW tea. I wonder if perhaps the Queen is afraid to give him the keys.

    But with Prince William and Katherine the Hot, I think the royals have a bright future in England. I think they represent the Crown well.

    She is pretty nice looking for sure. Can you imagine waking up next to Camilla every day. Just the fact that Charles can do that should disqualify him on judgment alone.

    Charles should definitely abdicate in favor of William.

    I was under the impression that John Goodman was next in line.

    My wife would cry, a lot.

    Charles would become king, unless he has died already. He would have to abdicate for William to become king. I do not believe the Queen can just choose her successor. There are rules of succession, just like in the US with death of the President.

    Charles is not well liked. If not careful, he could cause a call for the end of the monarchy. He would hopefully abdicate before that happened.
