Queen Elizabeth, soon to hit 88 years young, is preparing to pass along her royal duties to her eldest son, Prince Charles. After 62 years on the throne (has it been that long already? Feels no less than 59 or so), the slow succession of Charles is meant to ease pressure off the aging beauty for a gradual and seamless transfer of power.
The first step in the transition is the merging of Elizabeth and Charles’ press offices, any announcements concerning the monarchy will now come from one source. No mention yet on their twitter accounts merging, it can’t be easy to get @seriouslytherealqueen so she should probably hang on to it.
