Suc­ces­sion talks ahead

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

A de­ci­sion on whether the Prince of Wales should suc­ceed his mother as head of the Com­mon­wealth is ex­pected later this week, Down­ing Street has said.

Theresa May’s spokesman de­clined to say whether the prime min­is­ter thought the po­si­tion should go to Charles, stress­ing it was a de­ci­sion for all lead­ers of Com­mon­wealth states. The is­sue is to be dis­cussed on Fri­day when lead­ers of the 53 gov­ern­ments gather at Wind­sor Cas­tle.

The po­si­tion is not au­to­mat­i­cally held by the Bri­tish monarch.
