Commonwealth in secret succession plans

February 15, 2018

According to the BBC:

The issue is hugely sensitive because the role is not hereditary and will not pass automatically to the Prince of Wales on the Queen’s death.

The Commonwealth has set up a “high level group” to look at the way the international organisation is governed.

The agenda for the summit…says there will be a discussion of “wider governance considerations” which insiders say is code for the succession.

Any decision about the future would have to be made by the Commonwealth heads of government at the time of the Queen’s death. But there is no formal process for choosing her successor.
