King Charles III what kind of monarch will be?

King Charles III

Charles has thoughts. He articulates them. He's 73. He could be unable to turn it off. The heir has spent his entire life supporting his beliefs. To that end, he has founded royal think tanks, foundations, and trusts to promote "holistic answers to the difficulties confronting the globe today."

Charles has admitted that as king, he will have to voice his ideas less publicly and frequently – but his biographers are skeptical.

Charles, once labeled as a lunatic by his opponents because he admitted to talking to trees, is right on schedule for 2022.

At last year's COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, he was a rock star. He is zealous. While the world's politicians fiddle, he feels the globe is going to hell.

"He'll be a different kind of king." "Charles is a sophisticated thinker, romantic, and sentimentalist," observed royal biographer Robert Hardman, author of "Queen of Our Times."

Political neutrality is frequently regarded as critical to the monarchy's survival in modern times. However, in Robert Jobson's 2018 book "King Charles: The Man, the Monarch, and the Future of Britain," the author paints a monarch who wants to "lead as monarch, not just follow."

We could all see that Elizabeth adored horses, sensible shoes, dogs, handbags, the Church of England, shooting stags, Land Rovers, tradition, Prince Philip, duty, and her frequently bumbling, occasionally dysfunctional tabloid fodder family.

But, after a 70-year reign, what did she truly believe about any of the important topics of the day? Apartheid? Feminism? Brexit? The queen was adamant that the monarch should not meddle in politics. As a result, most royal observers had to rely on reading the tea leaves to determine her position.

According to pollsters, many Britons do not love Charles, but they also do not strongly detest him. While some still hold a grudge against him, many seem to have forgiven him for his role in his tragic marriage to Princess Diana, which ended in tragedy, more than 25 years later. He was a serial adulterer. He was, nevertheless, madly in love. It turned out that Camilla was now queen consort.

Episodes of the popular television show "The Crown" depicted him as a chilly fish, a harsh man who was unhappy with himself. Those who know Charles, on the other hand, report that he is a really warm person in person. The queen kept a long receiving line going at a palace celebration. Charles continues to linger.

"His staff often says that his investitures take a lot longer than the queen's, because she's pretty adept at having a few words and the handshake and then, right, that's off you go," Hardman told The Washington Post. "Whereas Charles is much more likely to strike up a discussion and say, 'Oh, you're a sheep farmer.' What kind of sheep do you raise? "It's just a different strategy."

He can be awkward in public. Tonally incorrect. As when he boasted about his eco-friendly Aston Martin sports car, which ran on wine and cheese.

Over the years, he has taken some unusual — and curiously particular — opinions on things like the greatest sheep breeds and the significance of excellent joinery carpentry. He also has enormous ideas about climate change, urban blight, organic farming, and how modern architecture is dehumanizing.

The future king is questioned about allegations of interfering in public affairs in the 2018 BBC documentary "Prince, Son, And Heir: Charles At 70." "Really?" he responds. You don't say anything."

"But I've always been attracted, if it's interference, to be concerned about the inner cities as I was 40 years ago, and what was happening or not occurring there, and the conditions under which people were living."

"I won't be allowed to do the same things I've done, you know, as heir, so of course, you operate within the constitutional constraints," he told the documentarians, referring to Shakespeare and how young Prince Hal grew up to be Henry V.

When asked if his involvement will continue in the same way, Charles replied, "No, it won't." I'm not so foolish; I understand that being sovereign is a separate exercise."

The interview itself is a stark contrast to his mother. Queen Elizabeth II never conducted a newspaper interview throughout her life, despite the fact that she lived during a period when the British press was hostile to the monarch. Despite having faced the media buzz saw, the worst of the worst tabloids in the 1990s, Charles has spent hours and hours with the BBC.

The queen firmly believed in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. As "Defender of the Faith and Supreme Governor of the Church of England," she was a religious figure. Her Christmas messages frequently included a reference to Jesus.

Charles is spiritual rather than religious. He feels that we have fallen from grace, from a more traditional, natural, Edenic state, by submitting to mechanistic, technological, modernist thought much too much.

Charles laments how the Age of Convenience resulted in the Age of Disconnection in his 2010 book "Harmony," a 336-page exposition of his royal philosophy.

The queen had numerous charities, as does Charles. However, he has gone much further in using his to express a point of view.

As Duke of Cornwall and Duchy of Cornwall overseer, he was in charge of 129,600 acres of property spread across 20 counties in southwest England, with a concentration on "sustainability," one of his favorite phrases — and not one the queen dwelled on.

To promote his ideas on traditional architecture on what he calls "the human scale," Charles has created a completely new experimental planned community called Poundbury, with low-rise buildings, front gardens, and reduced car use, based on the "new urbanism" that the king has referred to as his "vision for Britain."

Over four decades, the Prince's Trust has also assisted a million young people in Brian and across the Commonwealth with free courses, grants, and mentorship opportunities.

Charles has foundations and donors, which has resulted in a few minor scandals, like claims of financial payments from a former Qatari prime minister delivered in a suitcase and a Fortnum & Mason shopping bag. The Charity Commission declined to conduct an investigation. According to Charles, all gifts have been lawfully declared and accounted for.

Charles has announced his intention to return to Buckingham Palace in central London, an edifice his mother had primarily abandoned since the plague. But the new king also says he wants to streamline the monarchy and put it on a more modern footing.

One of the queen's final quandaries was what to do with Prince Andrew, who has been mostly excluded from public life since his settlement with a lady who claims she was sold to him by convicted sex offenders Jeffrey Epstein Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.

What King Charles does with his son, Prince Harry, is still unknown. Is he working to reintegrate Harry and Meghan into the royal family? After they resigned from their royal duties, relocated to California, and then complained to Oprah? Or hold them at bay? Some indications of his plan may surface in the coming days.

There are already hints of change on the first day. The future monarch greeted mourners at Buckingham Palace on Friday, reaching out to grab hand after hand until one woman thrust herself forward to offer a kiss. (Recall that no one was allowed to touch the queen.)

Jane Gibbs, 58, said her grandmother was a lady's maid to Princess Margaret, the queen's sister, at Buckingham Palace on Thursday night. She praised the queen as "our sovereign" and "better than any president" while speaking from beneath an umbrella.

Jill Creswell, a retired Londoner, sat next to her, holding a bunch of flowers. "We were in tears," she said. She claimed she supported Charles becoming king because he was next in line, but she made it clear that William would be "our king." She then sang the national song, "God Save the Queen," a few moments later.

Many individuals did this, sometimes loudly, sometimes softly, and occasionally in response to a brass band somewhere among the throngs of thousands.
