Prince Charles has been approved to take over from Queen Elizabeth II as the next head of the Commonwealth.

Earlier during the Commonwealth meeting in London, the Queen has appealed to Commonwealth leaders, saying it was her “sincere wish” that Prince Charles takes over “one day”.

In her speech, the Queen 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.”

The Commonwealth is an intergovernmental organization of 53 member states that are mostly former territories of the British Empire, with a combined population of 2.4 billion, a third of the world’s population.
