However, the queen turned 93 this year, and people can't help but wonder for how much longer she'll rule.

"There are no plans for any change in arrangements at the age of 95 - or any other age", the spokesman told People. And Prince Andrew's longtime friendship with Jeffrey Epstein was uncovered, which has become such a scandal that he's been forced to step back from his royal duties.

A palace source added that there were discussions about Prince Charles taking over particular responsibilities with Prince Andrew withdrawing from royal duties, but that in no way means Charles will be ascending to the throne any time soon.

Earlier this week, it was reported that the Duke's father, Prince Philip, ordered him to take a step back from royal duties amid the controversy following a tense meeting with him and Prince Charles.

It is a long way believed Charles striking his foot down is his procedure of making ready for the "Prince Regent" role in which he would possess care of day-to-day royal exchange on behalf of the Queen. Giuffre says she was forced to have sex with Andrew on three occasions while being trafficked by Epstein, allegations he has repeatedly denied.

The British media are hinting that Queen Elizabeth II is thinking of retiring in 18 months when she turns 95.

The Royal Family are well-known for their love of horses and the Queen has demonstrated her own passion for it, securing her first win as an owner when Choir Boy won the Royal Hunt Cup in 1953.

The royal family broke royal tradition previous year, opting to open gifts on Christmas morning, rather than Christmas eve like they usually do, a tradition that is linked to their German heritage. In 6, the world's first stamp, the Penny Black, featured an effigy of the head of Queen Victoria, as engraved by William Wyon (official chief engraver at the Royal Mint) to mark her coronation in 1838. Family insiders, however, point out that the Queen made a solemn declaration when she was a young woman about serving the monarchy for her entire life. Almost five years later, 93-year-old Queen Elizabeth has no plans on slowing down.

William and Kate are also parents to their son Prince George, six, and one-year-old son, Prince Louis. Future queen Kate Middleton was on-hand on Thursday to welcome world leaders alongside Queen Elizabeth at a palace reception in honor of the 70th anniversary of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. "The Queen is as busy as ever in terms of audiences, investitures and meetings".
