In the unlikely event that Prince Charles dies before Queen Elizabeth, will the line of succession change? Who would be the monarch in that case?
Here's What Will Happen If Prince Charles Dies Before The Queen
Queen Elizabeth has reigned since 1952 when her father, King George VI, died. The queen's own ascent to the throne didn't come about in a traditional way. Her uncle, King Edward VIII, made the decision to depart from royal life in 1936 (via Vogue), and recently, comparisons have been drawn between King Edward and Prince Harry.
