Sky News host Rita Panahi says Prince Charles “is everything the Queen is not” and she “fears for the future of the monarchy” when he ascends the throne.
“I don’t think he’s going to be able to stay away from these contentious issues, to understand his role and not to preach about climate change or Israel or other issues he’s spoken about in the past,” she said.
“For the sake of the monarchy and for the sake of our constitution, I do hope the Queen holds on and perhaps Prince William takes over and Charles just goes off with Camilla and has some quiet time”.
Ms Panahi said everything the Queen represents “is something to be admired”.
“Even staunch Republicans would have to admit she’s absolutely conducted herself beautifully throughout her reign,” she said.
