Victoria reigned from 20 June 1837 until 22 January 1901. I make that 63 years, 7 months and 2 days.
Elizabeth II was crowned on 6 February 1952. Therefore, to overtake Victoria, she would still need to be Queen on 7 September, 2015.
Your humble blogger is of the opinion that that’s what she’d hanging on for and may well abdicate sometime after that.
Charles was born on 14 November 1948, a positively ancient b***er. That would make him 66 years, 9 months and 24 days on that auspicious day of 7 September.
Given the propensity for longevity of the females of the family, albeit from different families, let’s say 86 years but the lesser age span of the men although Phillip is 93, it’s hard to put a finger on how long Charles will go for.
Giving him 86 years as well, that would make for another 20 years for Chas, making Wills [21 June 1982] 53 years old and two geriatric kings in a row might not be what the monarchy needs.
So let’s say the Queen abdicates. When? An auspicious day is the quarterday, September 29th, b’day of my ex-gf and others I know. On the other hand, the Queen might wish to go for the following 6 Feb or even as a Christmas special along with Clara in 2015.
She might abdicate, let Chas in for, say, 10 years and then, with Wills already having become the anti-christ, remembering that the AC does not know it from birth – it comes down upon him later – he bumps off Chas in a polo accident, in a rit of fealous jage over Diana whom he believes Phil and Chas colluded in bumping off.
But here’s the thing.
All three – Chas, Wills and George, die in a helicopter crash when Wills takes them for a spin, James Hewitt’s son then takes the throne – the new Prince Hal whom the people well love – but what no one knows is that it’s not Wills who becomes the AC, it’s Harry, courtesy of that alien spawn.
I’d have a good look at James Hewitt’s antecedents if I were you.
