How long will Queen Elizabeth II take before relinquishing her throne to the next one in line?
Now that Britain is celebrating the Queen’s 60th diamond jubilee. Does she intend to fade while on the throne? Is there no pity for the son?
I think she will die as Queen, she feels it's her duty.
I doubt that she will. It has long be held that she sees the position as a sacred duty.
H.R.H The Prince of Wales had been groomed for the role of King but loyal subjects of H.M. The Queen are happy ELIZABETH REIGNS over us. Her Majesty has shown such awe inspiring performance in her Royal duties to sheer perfection. Long live The Queen
May be it is high time the grooming stopped to eradicate speculation on succession issues so that heirs can live without looking forward to ascending to the throne, now that the Queen lives for ever.

What does Queen Elizabeth carry in that pocketbook?I mean isn't everything taken care of for her. Car keys? She has a chauffer. Wallet? I'm sure she doesn't have much of a need. Beauty supplies, I'm sure that's taken care of by a team of makeup and hair artists. Cell phone? I'm sure communication...
