Accession will not silence Charles

Hope for a more active monarchy, or a threat to Britain's constitutional settlement? Only the wimpiest sort of soft royalists will be afraid of the latter. I personally would love to see a more active monarchy, have far more respect for the Prince of Wales than any prominent British politician, and am sure he will make an excellent King!

In principle, I would accept a more active monarchy, but I'm not sure Britain is ready for that. We have been used to Elizabeth II's silence for a long time.

The media will give Charles hell if he says something potentially offensive or politically problematic once he becomes king.
