How did he become king?


I didn't vote for him. Did some watery tart lob a sword at him?

reply

"watery tart" LOL is that from Monty Python?

reply

Yeah. Holy grail.

reply

Yep. And it's no basis for a system of government!

reply

Well, he has no government powers essentially so good thing he's essentially just the UK's official celebrity and spokesman. The PM and elected reps do the actual governing nowadays.

reply

Well I hope at least the Court Wizard still has some powers.

reply

His mommy die

reply

He was the first to come out of a certain vag.

reply

His mum died and he was next in line

reply

Cute Monty Python reference.

No, he was Queen Elizabeth II's oldest son and her chosen heir in the line of succession. He's spent his entire life waiting for the job, and now he has it.

I remember just a few years ago how a rather crass Brit described Charles' job to me: He basically spent 70+ years putting on a suit and waiting for his mother to die.

reply

I'd like a job where I just have to put on a suit and that's it.

reply

What about a job where you don't even have to put on a suit?

reply

Well sure, as long as I don't have to do anything else.

reply

Naturally.

reply

Congratulations to Charles (on only taking 73 years to get a 'job')

His mother's billions now revert to him, whilst his (reported) billion reverts to his son (king in waiting)

A moistened bint...

It wouldn't surprise me if the truth is that both his father, Prince Philip, and then mother, QEII, died as a result of the Covid vaccine and/or its boosters considering the hidden pandemic of people dying unexpectedly whether young or old and generally in good health as we're now seeing particularly with people in the spotlight (sports players, musicians, actors, celebrities, etc).
