Default So, will we see a new monarch in Britain, soon?

Looks like that very well could happen any time. She had a good run. 96 y/o and the longest reigning monarch in their history.

While I only care two shits about the royals, I do not like that weasel dood charles.
he is weak, I am reminded of the scene from Braveheart, Longshanks in the tower tossing a body to the ground.
Then again you have to give him some credit, as very few men are brave enough to marry their grandmother,,,

Flag has been lowered...

I never understood the idea of the Monarchy in the UK, but she seemed like good people, at least what we were shown.

It's a money thing, like religion and politics.

It is quite a day. I have never known a different ruler of the UK. Born 2 weeks after she became the Queen. Its the passing of an era. No matter what you personally think of the royals, she was iconic. Great Britain has suffered a loss today.
Her son , now King, has never proven himself up to taking over.

Taking over what, exactly? Waving at people in parades? Living lavishly off the taxpayers? Showing up at parties for photo ops?

I believe his new role will include meeting the Brink's armored car at the back of the palace once a week.

I can agree with this. Iconic. Well liked by actual British people. Actually worked in the WWII war effort as a mechanic and ambulance driver, vs. fleeing to safety. I respect that.

Nobody in the newer generations have a clue, nor are they taught, about the devastations and herosim in the World Wars - ore even the civil war. I have my issues about monarchs being designated by heredity, but then I look at American's leadership and think maybe its not so bad.

It's amazing to see how all the kids coming through the doors of the college these days think the civil war was fought solely over slavery when it was actually about states' rights. Sadly, I think hisotry is about to repeat itself because the federal government is trying to turn the states and citizens into its slaves.

They have a King or Queen that pretends to run the government, we have a Brandon that pretends to run the government. Same/Same

No need for hereditary descendants, apparently one can just declare himself something and then run with it, aka Charlamagne the God:
