In this horary, I asked the question, 'Will Prince Charles Succeed his Mother to the Throne?'.
The answer to this this question might seem like an obvious 'yes', as Charles is the heir, but it may not be that simple. There has been a lot of speculation that Charles may be happy being the Prince of Wales, and when the time comes for him to ascend to the throne, he may simply pass the title onto his son, William.
Charles has also been subject to quite a bit of scandal over the years, particularly involving his relationships with Diana and Camilla Parker-Bowles. The British public have never quite forgiven him for his affair with Camilla, given that British affections, and indeed the affections of the whole world, were very much with Diana. The public's opinion of Camilla is reflected in the fact that when Camilla married Charles, she was not allowed to then officially become the Princess of Wales, lest the public should become outraged, she has instead been given the title of 'Royal Consort', which is hardly flattering.
William is a great deal more popular with the people, so this may be one reason that it might be decided that he should take a short-cut to the throne.
The answer to this question also is not an obvious 'yes', because, after all, you never know what is going to happen. Charles could for some reason or another meet his end before the death of the queen.
The reason I find this chart so interesting is because in the chart, the reigning monarch is shown by the MC, and of course, Charles, the heir to the throne and the Crown Prince, would then be shown as the 5th from the MC as the queen's son and heir. This brings us to the 2nd cusp. What is of interest is that if we count the 10th from the 2nd, to represent Charles future destiny and ascendancy to the throne, this brings us to the 11th cusp, which happens to be exactly conjunct Regulus
, the king star!
Of course, this does not mean that Charles will definately ascend to the throne after his mother, it may simply be descriptive of the nature of the issue in question, but surely it is very interesting that such a star should be in such a place in the chart.
Will Charles ascend to the throne, what do you think?
I provide this chart for your perusal:
Remember the exact conjunction of the 11th cusp to Regulus at Leo 29, this cusp is sextile Mars, Charles significator.
