Queen Elizabeth still reigns as she and the rest of the United Kingdom celebrate her Platinum Jubilee this weekend, but it won’t be long before it comes time for her son Prince Charles to ascend the throne. Though he’s been known as Charles his whole life, there is a chance that when he steps up to rule the nation, he will have a change of name. There are some historical foils in the family tree that might make him hesitant to call himself King Charles III.

Queen Elizabeth is set to begin celebrations in honor of her Platinum Jubilee this week after a rough year, both personally and as the head of state. Her son Prince Andrew’s scandals weigh heavily on the public mind while on a more personal level it’s only been a year since the queen lost her husband Prince Philip. That loss, in addition to several health issues including a sprained back, a COVID-19 diagnosis, and another mystery ailment that led to an overnight stay in the hospital last fall plagued the aging monarch over the past year.

Prince Charles Steps Up Amid Queen’s Health Crisis

Amidst these health problems, Prince Charles has been stepping up more than ever to fill his mother’s impressive shoes. Recently, he and his own son Prince William opened Parliament in Queen Elizabeth’s stead, though the speech he read was the one the queen had intended to give herself before reluctantly bowing out of the event. Now more than ever Charles seems to be poised to ascend the throne, though we of course hope it will be many years before he’s tasked with doing so.
