After years of waiting, Prince Charles apparently told Queen Elizabeth that he is not ready to be king.

Prince Charles previously held the title of "king in waiting" for the longest time. The heir to the throne would become the eldest king of Britain when he climbs up the throne, as he is already in his 70s.

The only time Prince Charles will be anointed king is if Queen Elizabeth dies, abdicates, or retires, as is common knowledge among royal aficionados. The final two choices appear doubtful. Thus, Prince Charles can only become king by the monarch's death.

In its Nov. 22 issue, Woman's Day stated that Prince Charles had a change of heart after waiting decades to ascend the throne. The father of two has reportedly realized that he is unprepared to lead the United Kingdom and believes that his eldest son, Prince William, is more fit for the position.

According to an alleged royal insider, Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth spoke shortly after the latter's hospitalization. During their chat, the future king shared his concerns with the monarch and offered that Prince William succeed the queen instead of him.

"It was an incredibly raw exchange. Having ma'am in hospital triggers all kinds of protocols in the event of her passing. And Charles was affected by it. His time at the climate summit reaffirmed what he really wants to do – activism," the unnamed palace insider claimed.

Because of his wife, Kate Middleton, Prince Charles reportedly assured Her Majesty that Prince William is her legitimate successor.

"Charles pointed out that William has Kate – and unlike Camilla, Kate's always been adored by the public and could be a more effective queen. He also argued from a cost-saving perspective, it's it best to pay for just one coronation instead of two in the space of a few years?" the unnamed source explained.

Even though the queen knows where her eldest son comes from, she is said to be furious with Prince Charles. After all, the queen has only recently been released from the hospital, and the last thing she needs is additional stress.

Charles is not as fit as he was before his COVID-19 battle last year," the anonymous insider claimed. The insider added that the queen was taken aback by this. It is also not the first time he has expressed reservations about stepping into her shoes. It is difficult for her not to become frustrated by Charles' fears. But it iss also her responsibility to facilitate a smooth changeover when she leaves this world.

There is no doubting, according to the insider, that the queen is concerned about her son. On the other hand, she has no patience with emotional lags, especially after her health scare. Furthermore, duty always comes first for Her Majesty, and she is well aware that she does not have time to waste given her frail age.

The queen and Prince Charles do not have the authority to amend the Order of Succession, regardless of the magazine's claims. After all, rather than being ruled by Royal Prerogative, the Line of Succession is established by an Act of Parliament.

Sallie Smythe, an enthusiastic reader of royal biographies, wrote on Quora that Prince Charles' birth established the line of succession. He will become the monarch regardless of what happens because he is the queen's eldest child.

Prince Charles may choose to renounce after his coronation to make space for Prince William, although this appears improbable. After all, the heir to the monarch has been awaiting his throne for decades.

According to an online tabloid, Prince Charles' formal moniker may change if he becomes king. He can use any of these four names combined with his royal title because his complete name is Charles Philip Arthur George. As a result, King Charles, King Philip, King Arthur, and King George are all possible names for Prince Charles.

Note that the reports should be taken with a grain of salt. Prince Charles' abdication and handover of the kingdom to his son is not guaranteed.
