Bookies suspend betting on Queen ABDICATING
BOOKMAKERS have today suspended bets on the Queen abdicating on Christmas Day as the Royal family gathered for their annual pre-festive lunch.

Favourable odds of 10-1 were being offered on Her Majesty announcing she would step down from the throne during her speech on December 25. However, after seeing a flurry of activity, bookmakers Coral have now closed betting on a potential abdication.

The firm's Nicola McGeady said: "Throughout the year there has been major speculation about the Queen's future but today's gamble has really caught us by surprise.

I personally look forward to seeing proud Britons grovel before King Charles and Queen Camilla.

I doubt they'll let Charles be king - more likely to be William.

Re: Bookies suspend betting on Queen ABDICATING
The Royals have managed to call their heirs the main name in succeeding Royal houses.

Tudors .... Elizabeth

Stuarts......Charles

House of Orange.....William

House of Hanover.....George.

I hope the Queen will not abdicate as the Stuarts reigns were troubled times.

The shorter Charles' reign the better as far as I am concerned.

He will not keep his council like the Queen and there are people with long memories who have not forgotten his behaviour towards Diana.

He has done other things which I have heard about and am not impressed with.

He is too much all about " me" and making money off other peoples' work and too little service and care for his people.

Remember the Greeks lost their throne. Kings do not loose their throne for no reason.

I thought they already said they wouldn't be skipping Charles to get William?


Clearly that would be the people's choice, but since when did the peasants get to decide these things?

That would probably be a horrible democratic precedent for feudal monarchists.

The whole idea of them and us is so out-dated would anyone actually want the job next ?

If they behaved like normal people they could walk down the street like anyone else.
