    It was posted in the news not long ago that Charles would be her heir. For years the Tabloids drooled that William should be named.

    Doesn't mean it was new news; the papers were just reporting a known fact. Charles has been next in line to the throne after Elizabeth since the moment he was born.

    That wasn't news. He was born into the position.

    Hold up - I don't understand this part. Who was ahead of him until age three and why?

    At 69-years-old, Prince Charles is the longest-serving heir in UK history - having been first in line from the age of three - and would become the oldest ever British monarch to take the throne.

    His mother. He was born in November 1948, Elizabeth II was proclaimed queen when her father, George VI, died in February 1952.

    I admire her too. Poor woman lost her last Welsh Corgi and she seems to have hit it off with Meghans beagle.
