Queen Elizabeth II pledged to spend her life serving the monarchy and the royal family. However, she might follow Prince Charles’ footsteps and retire when she reaches the age of 95.
For decades now, Queen Elizabeth II did nothing but the best for her people and family.
But all reign shall come to an end that the talks about her abdication have been buzzing these past few years.
There are rumors that the Queen will never give way to Prince Charles and abdicate. But a royal biographer suggested that she will step down from the throne once she becomes 95.

A royal commentator sat down for an interview with The Royal Beat on True Royalty TV. He claimed that Her Majesty will leave her post next year.
“I still firmly believe when the Queen becomes 95, that she will step down,” Robert Jobson said.
Meanwhile, Newsweek royal reporter Jack Royston disagreed a little and said that the Queen will not want to.
However, Royston also pointed out that the Queen already handed over everything to Prince Charles.
“…then how do you look your son in the eye and tell him he is not going to be King?” he went on.
The palace has never confirmed any of these talks yet. But it is worth noting that Prince Philip retired years ago and chose to enjoy his life now.
Currently, Queen Elizabeth II does her royal duties again. During the peak of the coronavirus pandemic, she and her husband isolated themselves. This caused the central royal members to step up and cover for her.
Princess Diana more powerful than Queen?
Aside from questioning the exact time of her abdication, the royal commentators also spoke about how Princess Diana thought she was more powerful than the Queen.
In 1995, the late Princess of Wales participated in a bombshell BBC Panorama interview. She outed Prince Charles’ infidelity during that time and revealed ugly truths about the royal family.
“That period between the separation announcement [of Charles and Diana], she [Diana] actually was on the ascendancy of getting everything she wanted,” Jobson said.
After doing the interview, the royal princess, reportedly, thought she was more powerful than the Queen. However, Queen Elizabeth II thought everything she did was enough.
It has been 25 years since the interview, yet the thought still lingers in royal watchers’ minds.
