    You may be thinking of Henry the VIII's famous "annulments", which were done so as not to piss off the Pope/Catholics. Has nothing to do with succession, and if you haven't heard the Windsor's aren't Catholic so they don't need to tiptoe around the concept of divorce.

    More likely Edward the VIII, who abdicated the throne to marry an American divorcee.

    They must have changed the rules if Charles and the Rottweiler were even being considered for the top job.

    Crap. I googled around and apparently it's a hoax. Freaking fake news.

    Our celebrities do too do good works!

    Of course they're being well-paid, wined and dined, and accorded luxurious travel accommodations, so that they can try to strong-arm governments and individuals into donating to charity so the celebrities don't have to spend their own money.

    But still....
