Just recently, Queen Elizabeth has just become the longest reigning British Monarch and it looks like she’s ready to pass on the throne. To make it even better, it looks like Prince William and Kate Middleton are getting it! Read below for the full details:

Things are turning unexpectedly in the world of the British royal family. According to a report as per Hollywood Life, Queen Elizabeth wants to crown the Dutch and Duchess of Cambridge the King and Queen! To everyone’s surprise, this means that she’s skipping giving up the throne her next successor, her son Prince Charles.

A source of the palace told OK! Magazine  said that everyone is surprised and with the Queen’s decision,

“They’re stunned. The idea of having Charles step aside for the good of the monarchy had been whispered about, but they never believed it would happen… when Kate found out, the first thing she did was call her mum and dad. They are absolutely overwhelmed.” the source told OK! Magazine.

Prince William and Kate may be too young to acquire the throne, but these two are very well0liked by the people of England. This may be one of the reasons why the Queen chose to skip and give it to a pair of 33-year-olds. Aside from that, the Queen took the throne when she was only 25, a couple of years younger than these two!

As for Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, this news was hard for them to handle. Still, Prince Charles understands his mom’s decision because it is what’s best for the royal family.

If it is true that Queen Elizabeth is passing on the throne to William and Kate, then it might likely happen after her 90th birthday next April 2016.
