Prince Charles, 70, is the heir to the British throne as the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. The father of Prince William and Prince Harry has been prepared to become the ruler of the British monarchy ever since he was young. Though some critics suggest that Princess Diana’s former husband is not fit to become a King, Royal supporters believe that the Prince of Wales is going to be a good leader regardless of all the issues and scandals he previously got involved in.

Now, reports are claiming that Prince Charles has “snatched” the crown away from Queen Elizabeth II. Globe contended that the husband of Camilla Parker-Bowles proclaimed that he is now a “temporary regent” and is not planning to give up the throne anytime soon.

An unnamed source, allegedly, told the tabloid that the father-in-law of Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle is, currently, “in charge” after Queen Elizabeth II’s health exacerbated. “[Prince Charles is]saying it’s only temporary until the queen recovers her strength, but Camilla’s been guzzling her gin in celebration and braying drunkenly to her servants that they’re in charge for good and everybody had better toe the line or else!” the tipster, allegedly, said.

For starters, a temporary regent, in the British monarchy, fulfills the duties of The King or Queen whenever he or she travels overseas or in case the current ruler is unwell. Only a primary member of the Royal family, who is at least 18 years old and in line for succession to the throne, is qualified to take the title.

Though Prince Charles can be pronounced as a temporary regent since he fits the qualifications, it is impossible for him to step in as the sovereign since the Parliament sets the laws regarding accession. Moreover, the good guys at Gossip Cop said Prince Charles will only become The King if Queen Elizabeth II decides to step down and pass on the crown, which she has no intention of doing so long as she is still able.

Thus, this report about Prince Charles being the new temporary ruler of the British monarchy is untrue and could just be another tactic of the tabloid to generate income from the members of the Royal family. With Globe’s history of publishing sensationalized rumors and using phony sources, this could be just another work of fiction waiting to be debunked.
