    Default Content From Coral - BOOKIES SUSPEND BETTING ON THE QUEEN ABDICATING IN 2014

    This from yesterday and featured in the Daily Telegraph...

    BOOKIES SUSPEND BETTING ON THE QUEEN ABDICATING IN 2014

    Leading bookmaker Coral has suspended betting on the Queen announcing her abdication before the end of the year, following a large gamble in the Windsor area this afternoon. The firm slashed the odds on Her Majesty stepping down this year into 1-2 from 3-1 following the gamble, before suspending the betting altogether.

    As the Queen starts to relinquish some of her duties as monarch, Coral are as short as 1-20 that Prince Charles takes the reins next, while Prince William can be backed at 8-1.

    “Today’s significant gamble suggests that the Queen could hand over the reins sooner rather than later. With her 88th birthday approaching, the Queen has started to relinquish a number of duties to Prince Charles, leading to major speculation about the monarch’s future,” said Coral’s Nicola McGeady.

    ** Next Monarch

    1-20 Prince Charles, 8-1 Prince Williams

    I think they are slowly lining Charles up for Her Maj to step aside, but over a long period. Don't quite think the public have the same love or bond with Charles yet so he'll start to take some more roles on to help with all that.

    but then again.....

    We certainly do need to bring a more dynamic monarchy. I would bring in Will's, wouldn't Kate look good by the side of his throne.
    Who else agrees?

    Nothing wrong with the queen if you ask me, and she knows her horse racing

    I vote Philip, he's good value, but im happy with the current queen. Thebookiesoffers makes a valid point.

    Those who would like to skip straight to Wills and by-pass Charles completely should join me on the side of Republicans. That way, if Wills was who we all wanted to represent us we could vote for him.

    I do concede that the Queen we have now has been an excellent monarch but for me she is the exception that proves the rule. The fact we now have King Charles to look forward to is exactly the point why I would like to see monarchy abolished.... but in the UK, what are the odds on that?
