Commonwealth 'in secret talks over who will succeed the Queen' as Prince Charles won't automatically become...

Quote
A "high-level group" from the Commonwealth is set to hold secret talks over who will succeed the Queen, it was reported.

Prince Charles will not automatically become head of the Commonwealth when his 91-year-old mother dies, as it is not a hereditary position.

The group, comprising former heads of state and cabinet ministers, is meeting in central London later to consider who will take over when the Queen's reign ends, the BBC reported.

Commonwealth in secret succession plans - BBC News

Quote
The issue is hugely sensitive because the role is not hereditary and will not pass automatically to the Prince of Wales on the Queen's death.

The Commonwealth has set up a "high level group" to look at the way the international organisation is governed.

This group is meeting later, officially to review how the Commonwealth is run by its secretariat and governors.

Succession of Head of Commonwealth role ?not part of group?s mandate? | BT

Quote
The Commonwealth Secretariat has denied that a high level group of Commonwealth officials has met in London to consider who might succeed the Queen as its head.

In a statement, it maintained that the issue of succession was not on its agenda.

It is thought the issue of succession may instead be discussed behind closed doors at the summit, during a day?s private retreat in Windsor for the leaders of the Commonwealth countries.

The Queen and Prince Charles join forces after Commonwealth row | Royal | News | Express.co.uk
Quote
Prince Charles and Camilla made a surprise appearance at the Buckingham Palace reception, hosted by the Queen, celebrating the Commonwealth diaspora in the UK.

The heir to the throne's appearance comes a day after the BBC claimed Commonwealth officials have been discussing who might succeed the Queen as the head of the institution.

But the Commonwealth Secretariat has denied that a high level group of Commonwealth officials has met in London to consider who might follow the monarch.

Charles spoke passionately about the potential of the family of nations to make a difference to the major challenges facing the world during his tour of south-east Asia and India last autumn.

It seems Charles is worried.
