Not Prince Harry and not Prince Andrew are a threat to the continued existence of the monarchy, but Prince Charles. Royal expert Libby Purves comes to this surprising conclusion. In The Times, she explains why the heir to the throne is most likely to damage the crown.

London – Ironically, in Prince Charles (73), royal expert Libby Purves (72) sees a “perhaps bigger problem” for the continuation of the monarchy. More conspicuous candidates would actually be Prince Andrew (62), who caused great concern with the abuse scandal that ended in a comparison, or Prince Harry (37), who has brought the royal family into disrepute with his memoirs and interviews. But in The Times, Purves backs up her statement with surprising arguments.

“Inappropriate”: The new generation is skeptical about Prince Charles’ interventions

The heir to the throne’s failure to understand how inappropriate his charities and interventions can seem to a new generation is putting the future in jeopardy, says the British radio presenter. Libby reports in “The Times” that only 61 percent of the polls are in favor, especially young Britons could apparently do without the monarchy. The financial scandal that brought the son of Queen Elizabeth II (96) into the headlines is viewed extremely critically.

But the 73-year-old age of the Queen’s firstborn alone poses a problem for many. Apparently, he is not trusted to understand today’s society. The wish arose again and again that Prince Charles should give up his place in the line of succession so that the scepter could be handed over directly to his son Prince William (40).

Queen Elizabeth II is indomitable but not immortal and well aware of it

The monarch would have done everything to carefully pave the way for her successor, Purves now writes in The Times. She reduced her travel and had Prince Charles open Parliament, symbolically only the crown was placed on the throne to show that Queen Elizabeth II is still in office. It is also her express wish to see Camilla as the king’s wife at her son’s side when she can no longer manage the royal business herself.

According to royal connoisseur Purves, neither Prince Harry’s attacks nor disgraced Prince Andrew have the potential to pose a major threat to the royal family’s standing. Her dramas were becoming less and less important, she estimates. But she sees the permanent heir to the throne with different eyes: “If there are any real difficulties in the dynasty, then they are with the heir, Prince Charles.” Sources used: Instagram #clarencehouse, thetimes.co.uk
