Succession talks ahead
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.
