News: Prince Charles Agrees To Take Crown

31st December 1988: CBC reported that Prince Charles, at the time in exile in the United States, had, after representations from military and political leaders, agreed to be crowned King. Charles had not taken the decision lightly as he had initially believed that such an act would fan the flames of war in Britain, but the continued violence, break-up of the Union and foreign intervention led him to change his mind. The Republican Government in London condemned the decision as "illegal, inflammatory and of no consequence".
