Should Prince Charles abolish democracy when he becomes king?
- tentofieldLv 73 months agoBest answer
He has no power to do that. Parliament controls the monarchy not the other way round. Parliament exercises its control rarely but it has done so six times.
In 1649 it sentenced Charles I to death, chopped his head off and abolished the monarchy installing the Commonwealth with Cromwell as lord Protector.
In 1660 it restored the monarchy with Charles II
In 1688 Parliament encouraged William of Orange to usurp the throne. James II was deposed and William and his wife Mary, James's daughter, ruled jointly.In 1701 Parliament passed the Act of Settlement that denied the throne to any Catholic or anyone married to a Catholic. Mary's sister, Queen Anne, was followed by George of Hanover rather than any further Stuarts.In 1936 Edward VIII was forced to abdicate by Parliament if he insisted on marrying Wallis Simpson.If Charles tried to force his will on Parliament, he would be removed from office,

The UK has a constitutional monarchy. That should be abolished

Why wait until then, The Queen should abolish democracy now. After all, Trump already did that in the rest of the world.

He could try I suppose and then after the laughter had died down, Prince William would be declared Regent and we would all live happily ever after.
