CHARLES TO BECOME ‘QUASI-KING’
Prince Charles will become a “quasi-king” as he steps up as “patriarch of the family” – but the Queen will “never abdicate”, a royal expert has claimed.
Robert Jobson has said the Duke of Cornwall will do “state visits” on the Queen’s behalf, however there is “no doubt” the monarch will “carry on” following the death of her beloved husband Prince Philip.
Talking to Omid Scobie on ABC’s podcast The Heir Pod, Jobson – who penned the book Prince Philip’s Century – said that there is “scope for change”, suggesting that Charles, 72, will become a “quasi-king”.
“The Prince of Wales will step up, in a way he’s already been doing that for the past five years, but now he truly is the patriarch of the family because the Duke of Edinburgh is dead,” Jobson said.
