Chapter 1

Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence of the British sovereigns since the year 1837. Although in use for the many official events and receptions held by The Queen, the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace are open to visitors every year. Buckingham Palace has 775 rooms. These include 19 State rooms, 52 Royal and guest bedrooms, 188 staff bedrooms, 92 offices and 78 bathrooms. In measurements, the building is 108 metres long across the front, 120 metres deep (including the central quadrangle) and 24 metres high. The Palace is very much a working building and the centrepiece of Britain's constitutional monarchy. It houses the offices of those who support the day-to-day activities and duties of The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh and their immediate family.

The Palace is also the venue for great Royal ceremonies, State Visits and Investitures, all of which are organised by the Royal Household. Although Buckingham Palace is furnished and decorated with priceless works of art that form part of the Royal Collection, one of the major art collections in the world today. It is not an art gallery and nor is it a museum. It is a stronghold in British society. It is going to be the home for a future king and his wife.

There were people who believed Charles, Prince of Wales to be a childish and cruel man. He nearly lost his wife and used his own children to make him more popular. He was considered to be cold hearted and self-loathing. It's a wonder to some on why his own wife Diana hasn't left him. Yes, he was all this. But he was not an awful man. He was hardly great enough to be the Prince of Wales, let alone the King of the United Kingdom. He had something in him, he had compassion. Charles cared for his own people. More than his own mother. He wanted to be involved in politics but his future role as a constitutional monarch infuriates him.

But the people never knew about this, all they knew were his scandals and unpopular mistakes from his past. People still thought of him as self-loathing and nobody wanted that for a king. Some believe that if Charles becomes king, Britain will become a republic. That is what three-tenths of the population want anyway, while the other seven-tenths support the monarchy. For those who support the monarchy, will they be ready for an elderly man with big ears to become their king.

Charles has been waiting for more than 60 years to become King, but many problems will face his way in order for him to fulfill his destiny. The stubborn Prime Minister David Cameron, the radical Jihadist who want Britain to be a Muslim caliphate. The Black panther groups and the ethnic nationalist don't help the country at all. Is multiculturalism worth it because it threatens what makes Britain great. Charles is the defender of the faith of only one church and not many.

Charles seemed to dislike the press and how they would treat him and his family.

"Bloody people," He once mumbled under his teeth when the press showed at a vacation house for him and Diana. "I can't stand these bloody press."

"Charles, please keep calm." Diana whispered to him.

"I can't stand these people," He whispered back to her. "They treat us like the bloody Kardashian whores. If you and me are going to be King and Queen, they need to take us seriously."
