Charles to be next head of Commonwealth

Charles to be next head of Commonwealth Charles to be next head of Commonwealth

During a banquet in Buckingham Palace last night, the Queen said it was her "sincere wish' that the Commonwealth "will decide that one day the Prince of Wales should carry on the important work started by my father in 1949".

Friday, Commonwealth leaders voted to make Prince Charles the next British Commonwealth head.

Following Queen Elizabeth's public call as she opened the group's summit on Thursday for potentially the final time, a series of Commonwealth premiers voiced their support Thursday for Charles as a figure of stability and continuity.

The Queen took over as the Head of Commonwealth in 1952, stepping in for her late father, George VI.

The issue has dominated this week's Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in London this week, and the 53 leaders today met behind closed doors at Windsor to discuss the issue.

But British Prime Minister Theresa May gave her backing to 69-year-old Charles. The career isn't hereditary, as well as a few men and women have indicated that a Non Royal leader are more appropriate at the 21st century.

Leaders of the Commonwealth - the 53-member group of mostly former British territories - have agreed that Britain's Prince Charles will be the body's next head.

In her speech, the Queen said: "It is my honest wish that the Commonwealth will continue to offer stability and continuity for future generations, and will decide that one day The Prince of Wales should carry on the important work started by my father in 1949".

Lloyd Dorfman, chairman of the Prince's Trust and Prince's Trust International, welcomed the news that Charles is to become the next head of the Commonwealth.

Tomorrow Meghan will join Harry for a reception at the Australian High Commission hosted by the nation's Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

Charles also took the opportunity to state his case following a bumpy trip to Australia for the Commonwealth Games in Queensland, during which he and wife Camilla faced criticism for looking bored at the opening ceremony.

The prime minister also thanked the Queen for hosting the event, calling the monarch a "steadfast and fervent champion" of the Commonwealth.

British officials have been paying more attention to the Commonwealth since the United Kingdom voted in 2016 to leave the European Union.

A decision on all successive heads has to be made by the Commonwealth leaders.

But the summit has been penalized by uproar within the procedure by United Kingdom government of some long-term British inhabitants in the Caribbean.

Hannah Furness, royal correspondent at the Daily Telegraph newspaper, said the message from the Queen was the clearest signal yet about the future of the head of the commonwealth.

Its members include small island nations in the Caribbean and Pacific that are among the countries most vulnerable to rising seas, fiercer storms and other effects of global climate change.
