Queen Elizabeth news: Prince Charles ‘must do the heavy lifting’ for Her Majesty as monarch ‘deserves’ to rest


PRINCE Charles must “prove he is capable” of continuing the Queen’s legacy as she “conserves her energy”, a royal writer has claimed.

Britain got a glimpse of Charles’ reign as he stepped in for The Queen at the State Opening of Parliament earlier this month.

Royal writer Omid Scobie, a friend of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, says Charles must now begin to “do the heavy lifting” in carrying on the Queen’s legacy.

Writing for Yahoo, the Finding Freedom biographer wrote: “With the Queen now comfortably in the final chapter of her reign, now is the time for Prince Charles to prove he is truly capable of continuing her 70-year legacy (and a final chance to capture the imagination of those still unconvinced).”

He added: “Whether Charles has exactly what it takes will only be seen once he ascends the throne, but one thing is for sure — The Queen has earned every right to conserve her energy for celebratory moments that the nation can enjoy alongside her.”
