Title: Successor to Queen Elizabeth II
Post by: Timinator on April 20, 2017, 12:42:28 PM
Ok first I hope she sticks around for many more years, but she is mortal and I'm not a big fan of the idea of King Charles. Imagine if there was a public vote on the replacement? Who would you vote for?

King William with lots of time on the clock, or maybe King Harry? Or another female?

The fact not many people out there have a living memory before 1952 means it will be an interesting time.

I think a King Charles could mean a few countries on the common wealth may change to republics and have their own head of state

I'm not an expert but I don't think we get to vote on the Monarchy ;)

Of course this is hypothetical

Hypothetically, if it were up to a vote, and if they let Americans vote... I'd totally vote for King Harry. :D (though I suspect he doesn't want the job!)

What wrong with old "big ears"?

Damn right! Although even as a committed anti-monarchist I actually don't mind the idea of Charles as the king. I don't like William with his fake "I'm just a normal guy with a normal family and a normal job" act, at least Harry uses his privilege for a suitably royal mixture of hedonism and charity.

if they let Americans vote... I'd totally vote for King Harry

It was your original American obsession with voting that meant that ship sailed long ago (or not as the Boston case had it) :P
