Skipping Charles wouldn't have just caused a rift in the family.

It would have caused a Constitutional crisis that likely would have brought the monarchy down. Literally.

There's a mechanism for a reigning monarch to abdicate, which is what Edward VIII did. But there's no mechanism for a reigning monarch to skip over the next hereditary heir to designate someone else to be monarch.

Well, there is mechanism for ensuring certain individuals don't ever ascend to the throne ...

I was going to add that they should include a couple like "robbericide" and "crookicide" and "childmolestericide," but ran into that damned Server Error message again.

I added "robbericide" and "crookicide" and "childmolestericide" to my Dictionary in case I wanted to use them again.

I also wanted to point out "mundicide" to RoadKingLarry.

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
