Letter: Queen should give Charles a chance

Andrew Marr’s recent fine film on the Queen made little reference to the heir to the throne (in contrast to frequent clips with William and Harry) – just once, when Andrew mentioned that at 63 Charles is the oldest heir-apparent in the world.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if, after the Diamond celebrations, the Queen announced her retirement?

If anyone deserves a rest she does – and so does her consort, bless him.

Otherwise, if she lives as long as her mother, poor Prince Charles may be nearing his eighties before acceding to the throne.

That’s cruel.
