Prince Charles will not enjoy the same popularity as Queen Elizabeth II.

The Prince of Wales is expected to take over the throne after Queen Elizabeth II. However, a royal expert warned Prince Charles that he would not inherit the current monarch’s popularity. Instead, the monarchy’s popularity might be diminished without Queen Elizabeth.

“The reality for the monarchy is that when the Queen dies one of the reasons for the monarchy’s popularity will be gone,” royal expert Tim Ewart said on “The Royal Box.”

“A large part of the popularity of the monarchy is based on the personal popularity of the Queen. There are suggestions that he’s not as popular as she is. We know that.”

The expert added that Prince Charles’ two sons Prince William and Prince Harry have helped increase the popularity of the royal family with their increasing public appearances. He believes that the Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex’s efforts are what the Queen wanted.

There are talks that Queen Elizabeth II will relinquish her throne to her eldest son in two years. According to royal author Phil Dampier, the monarch will be passing her power to Prince Charles when the 93-year-old royal turns 95.

Queen Elizabeth II will reportedly remain the Queen, but Prince Charles will be taking over most of her duties. Several reports claim that the Queen will do this by regulating the Regency Acts which will make the Prince of Wales a “king in all but name.”

Prince Charles has been preparing for his future role. He has ramped up his efforts to get himself ready to be the new king when the Queen passes away.

Earlier this month, Prince Charles celebrated his 50 years as the Prince of Wales. In the week of the celebration, he undertook 20 engagements across the Wales with his wife Camilla Parker Bowles.

In related news, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles always bring a bizarre and disturbing item whenever they travel abroad — a bag of their own blood. The royals do this in case they need blood transfusion and to ensure that they will receive urgent medical treatment wherever they are in the world. This is also helpful when they are in countries where reliable blood supply is questionable.
