News: Army Asks Prince Of Wales To Assume Crown

6th December 1988: Canadian television reported that rebel British Army generals had approached the Prince of Wales with a view to him assuming the crown following the abdication of the Queen and becoming a figurehead for disparate anti-republican elements in Britain to rally against.

The Prince was concerned that such a gesture would potentially inflame the situation in Britain and declined the approach, as did the Duke of York.
