Charles could ‘rewrite constitution and let William take power after Queen dies’

Prince Charles may rewrite the constitution and hand the crown to Prince William, Princess Diana’s former voice coach has claimed.

The Prince of Wales is heir to the throne and has long wanted to implement a slimmed-down monarchy, it is believed.

However, some have questioned the role he will take on once the Queen passes away.

Stewart Pearce, who worked with Diana from 1995-1997 and helped her master her public speaking, believes the Prince of Wales would prefer if his son took the reins.

He told the Daily Star: "She [the Queen] is preparing to leave, and when she leaves the whole psycho-physical nature of monarchy will change.

"And who knows, constitutional law may be rewritten.

"He [Charles] may not take the throne, he may hand it to his young son."

Asked if Charles would rather his son took power, Mr Pearce replied: "Oh sure, he doesn’t want to do it…such a difficult task."

Other senior royals have been preparing William for the crown for years, with he and Kate Middleton already taking on greater responsibilities.

Mr Pearce added: "William has been part of the conversation since his 11th or 12th year, he’s been groomed."

The Duke of Cambridge’s role has become even more significant since the departure of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle last year.

Asked if William would be content to ascend to the throne before Charles, Mr Pearce said: "Well, the prime motive is duty.

"The prime behaviour is in support of heritage and tradition as an iconic status for the British people to have something to refer to, in the way that Her Majesty has been this iconic statement for over 70 years.”

Pearce, 68, who recently released Diana: The Voice of Change, earlier dismissed the supposed rift that has reportedly pushed Harry and William apart.

The Duke of Sussex has twice stated that he and his brother are on "different paths".

However, Mr Pearce claimed: "They’re not saying 'therefore we are in animosity'.

"It’s just that the withdrawal mechanism, so to speak, that Harry and Meghan used had to be severe because of what they had been witness to."
