Queen Elizabeth Requests Prince Charles Become Next Commonwealth Leader

On Thursday (April 19), Queen Elizabeth asked the Commonwealth Heads of Government to officially appoint Prince Charles as her official successor.

The meeting of the Heads of Government are expected to meet this week to talk about who they believe should take over. Of course, Prince Charles is expected to become the next successor, as he’s also the natural heir and it’s widely accepted as a foregone conclusion.

“It is my sincere wish that the Commonwealth will continue to offer stability and continuity for future generations and will decide that one day the Prince of Wales [aka Prince Charles] should carry on the important work started by my father in 1949,” the Queen, 91, said at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, held in London, England at Buckingham Palace.

“By continuing to treasure and reinvigorate our associations and activities, I believe we will secure a safer, more prosperous and sustainable world for those who follow us: a world where the Commonwealth’s generosity of spirit can bring its gentle touch of healing and hope to all,” The Queen added.

This is the first time the Queen has come forward with such a strong statement that Prince Charles take over when the time comes.

Queen Elizabeth Mourns Loss of Her Last Corgi, Willow

Queen Elizabeth has reportedly lost her last beloved Corgi, Willow.

If you don’t know, the Queen has been an owner of Corgis for over eight decades, and Willow, who was nearly 15 at the time of her death, was a descendant of the Queen’s very first Corgi, Susan. Willow was put to sleep at Windsor Castle on Sunday (April 15).

“She has mourned every one of her corgis over the years, but she has been more upset about Willow’s death than any of them,” a source told the Daily Mail. “It is probably because Willow was the last link to her parents and a pastime that goes back to her own childhood. It really does feel like the end of an era.”

The Queen still owns two dogs – corgi-dachsund mixes Vulcan and Candy.

Our condolences to the Queen.

“Why do they always go round and round when you want to talk?” the Queen said as the helicopters roared above. “It sounds like President Trump … or President Obama.”

You can watch the moment here.

The full documentary, The Queen’s Green Planet, will be airing on ITV in the U.K. on April 16. Be sure to check it out!
