The Queen, who is currently 93, is reportedly working on a plan to hand over all her power to Prince Charles as soon as she turns 95.
The move would be part of the 1937 Regency Act, used in situations similar to this one, where a reigning monarch is able to give up power to their heirs if they feel they are no longer able to perform their duties.

The Sun is reporting that Charles is quietly preparing to take over operations in the background.
Royal author Phil Dampier told Yahoo, “He is starting to do that already, being at the state opening in Parliament and the Commonwealth conference.
