This is yet another reason I hope that Queen Elizabeth II can hold out to at least her Diamond Jubilee (nine years hence), and preferably to whatever follows. I keep hoping that he'll marry Camilla Parker-Bowles, convert to Roman Catholicism (as he seemed formerly inclined to do), or convert to Islam (in which he now seems interested), all of which would remove him from the succession, since the King must be considered an impeccable Anglican (divorce is okay, but remarriage most certainly would not be). I'd prefer for someone like Prince Andrew, who fought in the Falklands War, to reign, but not only Charles but also William and Harry would have to be removed. Neither of Charles' children have expressed any public opinion on the war, to my knowledge, and both seem fairly immature.
Is it to late to get Margaret Thatcher in line for the throne? Yes? Drat.
