Nepotism, but what else is new.

So, the Queen would like Charles to carry the Commonwealth can after she has kicked the bucket. Now there's a surprise.

Nice lady and all, and although I'm no royalist she's done a good job but crikey, give it a rest and let's see the whole débâcle of inherited privilege and imperial nostalgia die a natural death.

Time to pull the plug.

It would seem that the commonwealth leaders have agreed that Charles will be the next head of the Commonwealth.

I can’t help feeling this is a great shame and an enormous missed opportunity to celebrate the diversity of nations and people making up the commonwealth by having a Moslem leader next time round. Maybe Mamnoon Hussain.

Hmm, Monarch or Muslim, hmm.

Hate to say it but if that's the choice then Monarch it is, again. Sad

The two things are not mutually exclusive.

Perhaps you would be happier with Muhammad V of Kelantan?

Re: Nepotism, but what else is new.

Here's a revolutionary idea:  How about the people of the Commonwealth electing their Head?
