Global news outlets suspect the Monarchy may fall when Queen Elizabeth II dies. The intention of this piece is not to offer a history lesson of The Royal bloodline, rather inspire discussion— will Centry-old, British Monarchy die with the Queen?
For 70 years (February 6, 1952), the entire Earth’s human population, has only ever known one woman to reign over England. Whatever “reigning” means. But, I digress.
Queen Elizabeth has made history in so many ways:
- First televised coronation (1952)
- Longest reigning monarch, by seven years
- Only British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee
- Mentored by Winston Churchill
- First televised Royal wedding (1947)
- Televised birthday speech (1947)
But one bad apple spoils the bunch. Well, that expression really doesn’t seem to apply here. Maybe the opposite- one good apple couldn’t save the bunch? Either way, it seems the scandals connected to the royals could make The Firm crumble.

- Then the ungodly idea that Prince Charles becomes the King of England in his 70s after the world has seen him live and learn under a microscope.
