WINDSOR, UK: The Queen has been urged to start giving up her control over her responsibilities as monarch so that Prince Charles can prepare to reign on the throne. A royal expert said ‘the Queen needs to loosen her control so that he can prepare himself for the next Royal’.

In the recent past, Queen Elizabeth II has had to step down from various engagements due to ongoing mobility issues, leaving her eldest son, Prince Charles, to attend on her behalf. Considering the Queen's age and health struggles, UK constitutional expert Craig Prescott advised her to "loosen" her control, preparing for the "transition" of Prince Charles taking over from her.

Dr Prescott added that the Queen has always taken a very singular view towards her role. He said that it's now needed to look at the possibilities of losing the structure that has been characteristic of her reign. This will help with the transition and prepare Prince Charles for his future role.

Prince Charles has already undertaken a lot of duties and has multiple, prominent roles inside The Firm too. But for all practical purposes the Queen is the solitary face of the British monarchy, even as she depends more and more on other senior royals. Prince Charles can slowly but surely start stepping up for a few more of the Queen's duties that have become a strain on the monarch given her medical conditions and advanced age.

Previously, in May, the Queen was due to attend a state opening of the Parliament but wasn't able to attend due to not being in perfect health condition. During that time, Buckingham Palace released an official reason stating her absence as ‘episodic mobility issues’. This event was also missed by the monarch two times during her pregnancy with Prince Edward and Prince Andrew.

Buckingham Palace confirmed that the monarch would be meeting the new Prime Minister in Balmoral castle in Scotland. This event always traditionally happens in Buckingham Palace itself. Currently, the monarch is in Scotland, where she likes to spend her summer, and will soon be returning to Windsor.

Soon or maybe in some time, the queen has been advised to help Prince Charles prepare for the transition by trusting him with more important duties as he will be next to reign on the throne. What the royal family will decide to do is still a mystery. Will the final decision factor in the British public's reaction to Prince Charles as King with his wife Camilla as Queen Consort?
