The author, Emily Andrews, the Sun’s well-briefed royal correspondent has a reputation as something of a Republican, but there is no denying the fact that the ever-closer reality of King Charles III remains deeply troubling to the British people.
Just this weekend Charles was forced to effectively give up any intentions of taking over his mother’s job before her death. A front page story in the Sunday Times, stuffed with quotes from the Queen’s courtiers, shot down notions which often seem to emerge from Charles’s supporters that the reins of power should be transferred to his care sooner rather than later.
Charles people made no attempt to counter the story; a wise move.
