Prince Charles religious views may put his position as future king at risk.

In a new documentary titled "The Madness of Prince Charles," the religious experts speak about the Prince of Wales position and how his views on religion may affect his position as the next heir.

"For the last 500 years, the reigning British Monarch is crowned the title of supreme governor of the Church of England and Defender of the Faith, Henry VIII by the Pope in 1521 for his early support for Roman Catholicism," the clip said (via Daily Express).

"However, Charles views on religion go against a long-standing tradition in the Royal Family, after the Prince of Wales declared to be the defender of all faiths," the voiceover continued. "He has praised Islam, Sikhism, Buddhism, the Greek Orthodox church and other un-Orthodox beliefs, going against the traditional stance taken since the reign of Henry VIII."

"If he can't, in all honesty, be supreme governor of the Church of England, then perhaps abdication," Reverend Gordon Warren, former rector of Limehouse, said on the program.

According to Tom Rowley, a journalist for The Telegraph, when Prince Charles ascends the throne he doesn't want to be cast as the Defender of the Faith, which is a title held by each monarch. Instead, the future king wants to be the Defender of Faith.

Earlier this year, Prince Charles delivered his first Easter message. In his statement, he asked to free the Christians, Jews and Muslims from the "barbaric grip of those who distort and misrepresent faith."

Prince Charles also called that those who were persecuted for their religion should not be forgotten while adding "for their faith and for their life" were "in our prayers."

In related news, Prince Charles may opt for a different name when he becomes king due to the negative connotations in the name "Charles."

The next in line to the throne may choose any of his middle names. "He might choose one of his other names Philip, Arthur or George," Dickie Arbiter told Hello!

However, according to previous reports, it is unlikely for the Prince of Wales to be King George. There were talks about this in the past years, but Clarence House reportedly denied it.
