Charles has plans (or so it is said) to reduce the size of the Royal household and he would be well advised to do this. A monarch must keep close control over those associated with him or her. The current Queen is insulated from dubious associations due to her extremely long reign and upstanding personal behaviour. Charles, however, will not be so lucky. He has been given an extremely raw deal from the British tabloid press due to his catastrophic first marriage and the likes of the Sun will be only too eager to bury him if they can. That said, he has the makings of a good modern King if he ever gets the chance.Thre is only one option - Charles and I see nothing wrong with him. He may not last long, but his son William seems good as well. The main thing for any monarch is to never do or say anything contrversial. Obviously the older they are the better. This probably should apply to the monarch's close family as well, but is much harder to control.
