Labour MP demands a wallflower king

November 24, 2014

According to The Guardian:

Prince Charles’ intention to become an “activist” king could force the nation’s political class to rethink the role of the monarchy, MPs have been told.

[Labour MP Roger] Godsiff told parliament on Thursday that “…parliaments…are going to have to decide what the role of the monarchy is in relation to the new constitutional settlement”.

Comments by the prince’s allies that, should he replace his mother, Charles planned to continue speaking out on issues that mattered to him sparked warnings that this could precipitate a constitutional crisis because the monarch would be breaching conventions of political neutrality.
