Princess Anne says King Charles is well prepared for the throne

With less than a week to go until the coronation, Princess Anne has shared her feelings about King Charles III’s reign with CBC News. “Well, you know what you’re getting, ’cause it’s been handy[c]for a while, and I don’t think it will change,” Anne explained. “You know, he is committed to his own level of service, and that will remain true.” Anne noted that “the monarchy is about continuity,” and keeping that in mind is an important part of the struggle with Charles filling the big shoes of their late mother, Queen Elizabeth II. “My mother was queen for a very long time. And although you know it could happen, you don’t really think about it much. . .” Anna added.

Maintaining this ‘continuity’ which Anne sees as vital to the success of the monarchy means the royal family must refocus its allegiance on the next. “For the rest of us, it’s more a question of, OK, we have to change the way we accompany,” she insisted. As for how she feels about her own role in being crowned a prestigious Gold-Stick-in-Waiting, Anne didn’t shy away from taking on the title. “So I said yes, and most importantly, it solves my dress problem,” she joked. It’s clear that Anne would take on any role the new king and queen might ask of her, and given her respect within the family, they might well accept her.
