Commonwealth in secret succession plans

Recommended Posts

 Ukshep    22,965

The Commonwealth has secretly begun considering who might succeed the Queen as its head, the BBC has learned.

The issue is hugely sensitive because the role is not hereditary and will not pass automatically to the Prince of Wales on the Queen's death.

The Commonwealth has set up a "high level group" to look at the way the international organisation is governed.

This group is meeting later, officially to review how the Commonwealth is run by its secretariat and governors.

However, senior sources added that the gathering in London would also consider what happens when the Queen, who turns 92 in April, dies.

Hmm. Her birthday is in one of my watch months for this year. I wonder if this connects symbolically in some way to expectations. When and if she dies. And if there are any signs in the heavens??

Who gets the £100M+ gold buggy she parades around in? 

Who would want it? too much wealth display for my liking. Like a gold buggy. Seriously. Like the f**k? you know what I mean?

Not knowing anything about how all that works, but if a high level group needs to see who is the best fit, then it seems more like a Hollywood production that has become unnecessary????

Oh it's all unnecessary to be honest! As long as they don't come out with some sheet about a hidden heir to the thrones with more right to rule... Oh boy would that be entertaining.... but still terribly divisive.

With the way things are going this could be a strong possibility. Our society has been about secrets,lies and deceptions.:pulling-hair:
