Queen Elizabeth Operates on a ‘100-Year Plan’ — Harry and Meghan’s Exit Was Just a ‘Mere Moment’
Queen Elizabeth and the royal family have had some trying times in recent months. The Firm has dealt with everything from Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex stepping down as senior royals to Prince Andrew’s scandal to the death of Prince Philip.
Still, Her Majesty is reportedly “incredibly happy” with the future of the monarchy. This is because the family operates on a “100-year plan.”
Queen Elizabeth just celebrated her 95th birthday
Just days after the death of Prince Philip at the age of 99, Queen Elizabeth celebrated her 95th birthday. The queen turned 95 on April 21, and she marked the occasion in a low-key way at Windsor Castle.
Her birthday fell within the two-week royal mourning period for the Duke of Edinburgh, which was observed until Friday, April 23. Prince Philip died on April 9 and was laid to rest on Saturday, April 17.
Her Majesty wants longevity
According to True Royalty TV founder Nick Bullen, the one thing that Queen Elizabeth wants for the monarchy more than anything after she’s gone is “longevity.” Bullen told Fox News that the queen is “incredibly happy” with what the monarchy will look like in the future.
“I believe the one thing she wants for the monarchy is longevity. She wants to leave it in a better position. And she’s pleased with the three kings who are in line to take over, which would be Charles, William, and with time, George,” Bullen said.
Queen Elizabeth has given her entire life to the crown
Bullen went on to explain that the world has changed significantly during Queen Elizabeth’s reign. When she inherited the throne from her father, King George VI, it was February 6, 1952. At the time, she was just 25 years old. Her Majesty was formerly crowned on June 2, 1953.
Just a few years prior, the then-Princess Elizabeth said in a speech in South Africa that her lifelong commitment was to the crown.
“I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong,” she said.
Queen Elizabeth and her family operate on a ‘100-year plan’
Bullen notes that when you consider everything the queen has been faced with, she’s “led an incredible reign.” And, despite all of the scandals in recent years, he says the palace will simply “carry on.”
“I’m told that the Windsors operate on a 100-year plan,” Bullen shared. “That’s why things like Harry and Meghan leaving or speaking out are mere moments in history. They are short-term. But the Windsors think long-term. And it’s my understanding the queen knows her family will carry on with her legacy long after she is gone.”
Her Majesty leads by example
Mike Tindall, the husband of Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter Zara Tindall, was one of 30 guests who attended Prince Philip’s funeral. The former rugby star recently said on his podcast The Good, The Bad, and The Rugby that the scaled-down funeral (due to the pandemic) was exactly how Prince Philip would have wanted it.
“I think it was the perfect day, how he would have liked it. If that makes any sense whatsoever. No fuss, get on with it,” Tindall explained. “And my love for the Queen was even better, she sat there completely on her own. Separated herself in terms of, ‘this is what the world is right now, and I’m going to lead by example’ and she’s amazing, literally amazing.”
