If it wasn't for the fact that it would muck things up for William I would far rather see the crown go to Anne. I know that would cause all sorts of constitutional problems, but thats just the way I feel.
Charles is too damaged as a result of the whole Diana saga to deserve to be King.
HMQ knows this and will hold on as long as possible. The nation would largely accept William but not his father who would do the monarchy untold harm.
He should accept that he is happy to be with Camilla (presumably) and let it pass a generation.
I don't believe he was "bamboozled by a blonde bimbo" If anything it was the other way round.
Diana was innocent at the outset and was used as suitable breeding material then cast aside when her role was fulfilled and she looked for the fulfilment she wasn't getting from Charles who was still longing to be with Camilla.
"The problem comes if the non-political figurehead forgets that is his role and thinks he has useful opinions." That'll rule Chaz out then.
Sixty four years in the waiting, sixty four years of prime upkeep costs, sixty four years of wasted preparation posibly all for naught and you say "we don't really have the structure for an executive president", we've had sixty four wasted years to plan an alternative.
