The queen may retire in 2021, setting a record of 69 years in office

Queen Elizabeth II, 93, may retire when she turns 95 in 2021, with her eldest son Charles as regent, the Sun reported on the 28th local time.

The Regent is the person who actually takes charge of power when the king or queen has not abdicated. It is a taboo word for the royal family, but the rumors about the Queen's retirement have not appeared for the first time. British media reported that the Queen's retirement rumors resurfaced because Prince Charles gradually increased his control over Royal affairs, which is regarded as a sign that the queen may be about to retire. Elizabeth II has gradually reduced the number of official activities in recent years, from 332 in 2016 to 283 last year, while Prince Charles, 71, had 507 official activities last year. Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, retired at the age of 95 in the autumn two years ago.
