The Queen is expected to step down and pass on all her duties to Prince Charles in 2021, a royal expert has extraordinarily claimed.

Robert Jobson spoke on True Royalty TV‘s The Royal Beat where she expressed she believes the Queen will retire from royal life in 2021.

The biographer said: “I still firmly believe when the Queen becomes 95, that she will step down”

Newsweek‘s royal reporter Jack Royston disagreed however, saying: “I think she won’t want to.

“But realistically she will get to a point where she has handed over everything to Charles and then how do you look your son in the eye and tell him he is not going to be King?”

Mr Jobson has previously told the Daily Mail: “I understand the Queen has given the matter considerable thought and believes that, if she is still alive at 95, she will seriously consider passing the reign to Charles.

“Her Majesty is mindful of her age and wants to make sure when the time comes, the transition of the Crown is seamless.”

Mr Jobson made another grand claim about Princess Diana, saying Princess Diana was “more powerful than the Queen” before her 1995 Panorama interview.

He said: “That period between (Charles and Diana‘s) separation announcement, (Diana) actually was on the ascendancy of getting everything she wanted.

“But she did this (Panorama) and I think she thought she was more powerful than the Queen. The Queen thought enough was enough and the shutters came down.”
