Prince Charles Intends to Continue Campaigning When He Becomes King
The Telegraph (UK) ^ | June 28, 2014 | Patrick Sawer

Posted on 06/28/2014 12:47:51 PM PDT by Cecily

The Prince of Wales is determined that his campaigning and charity work will continue even after he becomes King, emphasising the importance of what he calls “sticking to your guns.

In a rare interview Prince Charles let it be known that he wants the trusts and charities he has set up – whose work covers a broad range of social and environmental concerns – to carry on when he assumes the role of Monarch.

That raises the prospect of a future King Charles III being seen as a supporter of causes, some of which may come into conflict with the views of the public or even the Government of the day – a scenario that could cause complications in Britain’s constitutional monarchy.

This clown won't rest until he destroys what is left of the British monarchy. He needs to watch the British version of the "House of Cards" series to refresh his memory of what a prime minister may do to rid him/herself of an annoying, oppositional monarch.

Part of his problems stem from him being reared by a queen.

I’ve never thought that he’d BE king. I know the Queen has designated certain roles to him but somehow I see her living long enough that the crown passes directly to Wills. We can hope!

Chas appears to be a fool of the first order, what with all that inbreeding. At least the gene pool expanded with his marriage to Diana and their 2 sons seem more, um, human?

Long live the Queen. Long enough to have the crown skip Chuck and pass down to William.

The Monarch takes little direct part in Government. The decisions to exercise sovereign powers are delegated from the Monarch, either by statute or by convention, to Ministers or officers of the Crown, or other public bodies, exclusive of the Monarch personally. Thus the acts of state done in the name of the Crown, such as Crown Appointments,even if personally performed by the Monarch, such as the Queen's Speech and the State Opening of Parliament, depend upon decisions made elsewhere:

Prince Charles has a couple nuts rolling around in his head from some of the antics and things he’s said. One unimpressive man...royalty wise...in his case what one wears doesn’t fit the man under the clothes.

“. . .reared by a queen,” comes from a Saturday Night Live skit about an embarrassing incident involving Charles and a gay valet in 2003.

I honestly believe that The Queen is trying to outlast her son Charles. Wait until he has actually died, or is old enough so that spreading rumors of his ‘Tragic and Rapid Deterioration, no doubt due to the onset of Senility’ will be easily accepted. One month (one week?) after Charles is taken out of the lineage, then Elizabeth steps down, and then hands the crown to Prince William.

“T0his clown won’t rest until he destroys what is left of the British monarchy.”

Labor already hates the Monarchy, and King Twit will finish it off with the rest. Well, Elizabeth did every thing but do a “late, late, term abortion” to keep him off the throne.
“King Charles the Last”!!

I would think there is always the caveat that a deal is voided if the person assigned with the duty is seen to be severely and chronically incapacitated from this point forward. Failing that, Charles could be ‘convinced’ to abdicate if under duress, real or presumed. There may be a variety of ‘undisclosed scandals’ that can be used to make the water of public life a very hot and uncomfortable place, even for a Prince.

Cromwell wasn’t yet in a position where he was solely responsible, but he was certainly one of the moving forces behind Charley’s decapitation.

Which occurred, BTW, because Charley believed firmly that he, as king, was not obligated to keep any bargains he made if they became inconvenient. Since he believed equally strongly in his obligation to execute those who rebelled against God’s chosen ruler, those rebels were in self-defense forced to kill him first.

A slightly more pliable and dependable man could probably have kept his head by inaugurating the long English trend towards constitutional monarchy. His son Charley II, for instance.

Another good argument against continuing the long-pointless monarchy. Jughead plants trees in Turkey wearing muzzie garb, badmouths US businesses, and in general acts like the great pillock that he is. Off with his head!

He will destroy the monarchy.

He is an idiot. He could last 20 years or more bloviating about global warming and the religion of peace..

Not sure people will be willing to wait for William and George.

The Royal Family ceased to have any legitimacy the day killing subjects of the Queen in the womb became “legal,” and the Queen did nothing. On that day, of course, Hitler won.
