Commonwealth Heads of State Agree For Prince Charles to Be Their Next Leader

👤 By Christian Smith

Commonwealth leaders have appointed Prince Charles as the next head of the organisation.

At the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) that took place in London this month, the Queen, 91, had appealed to leaders of  53 countries for her son to take over her role “one day.”

She said: “It is my sincere wish that the Commonwealth will continue to offer stability and continuity for future generations, and will decide that one day the Prince of Wales should carry on the important work started by my father in 1949.”

A high powered group, which includes the former Nigerian finance Minister, formed  by Patricia Scotland, the Secretary-General of the Commonwealth Secretariat, discussed the non-hereditary role in February.

But, it was not until today that a decision was made to appoint Prince Charles.
