Based on the Latin word for Charles 'Carolus' and precedent of the previous two King Charles the BBC have already referred to it as the 'new Carolean era'.It is a sad day but I'll be very happy to get to 96 and still have all my marbles!
We have had six Georgian eras and two Elizabethan eras, What now, Charlian? Doesn't have the same ring somehow..
My wife watched many documentaries on the old girl, WOW. She was so smart guess she even put things in place to limit what Chuck does, going to monitor him from the grave.Apart from Victoria and Elizabeth II that is how it has been for centuries.
The BBC got widely criticised for blanket coverage of the death of Prince Philip, and they are making the same mistake again on the death of Queen Elizabeth.Today the BBC is devoting it’s main channel to her life, mind you they keep putting bloody Paul McCartney on, the odious little creep.
My memory is too good for me to want to watch the same clips dozens of times in one day, I turn off the TV in frustration.Well I have been watching it all day
well , the queen's husband lived to the ripe age of 99 right? Those people seem to live a long time ! So , i'd put Charles in the range of 95 to 100 years of age . I wonder what they're eating to live such long lives... During her 70 yrs reign, many people were born and died within that period...I wonder how long Charles will live for, or even reign for. Definitely not for 70 years that's for sure. Can't imagine more than 20 in the most optimistic outlook. Old Charlie is 74 ish right now. I think 15 could even be high-balling it so lets go with that. At that point William would become the next king at the age of 55.
There are some interesting theories regarding how the very rich and powerful tend to achieve such longevity, but I'm not sure I believe any of them.Those people seem to live a long time !
