King Charles III has ’90 days to save monarchy’ as Firm in ‘dangerous’ period

The newly-appointed King Charles III has just 90 days to save the monarchy after the Queen's death, one of the Royal Family's biggest critics has claimed.

As is written in Royal law, the second Her Majesty passed away, her son became the new head of state.

And with that role, Daniela Elser says, comes a 90-day period in which he has to try to save the monarchy and the Commonwealth.

Writing for, she said: “For King Charles III, as a father and as sovereign, the next 90 days will be one of the most dangerous periods in the history of the House of Windsor, not least because once the black crepe has come down, once the flags are back at full mast, in Commonwealth countries like Australia the murmurings of the Republican movement are likely to become increasingly clamorous.

“There is, most obviously, the fact that the new Head of State, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith and Head of the British Armed Services is a man who, for decades, was simply not that well liked.

“Even after a lifetime of having dedicated himself, most notably to environmental causes, and of having established his mould-busting Prince’s Trust charity, the numbers paint an unflattering picture.”

As it stands, the Commonwealth consists of 54 independent nationals, such as Botswana, Keny, Namibia, India, Singapore, Pakistan, Barbados, Jamaica, Malta, Australia, Nauru, Tonga and New Zealand.

The Queen was ruling monarch and head of state for 15 other countries, including Australia, New Zealand and Fiji, with those duties now being passed down to Charles.

An official message of condolence was made on the Commonwealth's website overnight.

Secretary General Patricia Scotland said: “It is with the greatest sorrow and sadness that we mourn the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

“After a long life of faith, duty and service, a great light has gone out. Her Majesty was an extraordinary person, who lived an extraordinary life: a constant presence and example for each of us, guiding and serving us all for as long as any of us can remember.

“Throughout her reign, and seven decades of extraordinary change and challenge, Her Majesty was the epitome of duty, stability, wisdom and grace.”
