Report: Queen Elizabeth ‘Preparing To Abdicate’

It’s common knowledge that Queen Elizabeth is Great Britain’s longest-reigning monarch in its history. But could her rule be coming to an end? Last year, one tabloid reported the queen was abdicating her throne. Gossip Cop is returning to this story to see where the royal line of succession stands today.

Is Queen Elizabeth Leaving Her Position?

This time last year, New Idea claimed that Queen Elizabeth was making preparations to abdicate after last year’s Trooping the Colour. The “low-key” event couldn’t be held with its “usual pomp and ceremony” due to COVID. One royal family biographer told The Telegraph that “the Queen’s reign is effectively over. Corona has practically put Charles on the throne.”

It’s because of that interview, New Idea claimed the queen was thinking of passing the crown on to Prince Charles. As Gossip Cop pointed out, the monarch worked from home. She appeared on video calls to British caregivers. She still gave her Christmas address like she does every year. If the publication would have read the Telegraph interview a little further, it would have seen the paper’s praise of the throne, saying this was a “seminal moment” that showed “how quickly the monarchy has adapted to the coronavirus era.”

What’s Going On With The Royal Family?

The previously referenced royal family biographer was later refuted by The Telegraph, calling his statements a “gross underestimation of the Queen’s ability to adapt to challenges put in her path.” It’s clear, even a year later, that tabloids will pick and choose whatever quote or fact they want and trim it to fit their narrative, especially when to comes to the royal family

Since this story was first published last year, a lot has changed for Queen Elizabeth. First off, Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle had another baby and are officially living in the United States. The couple has infamously spoken out against the crown but has remained loyal to the queen, naming their daughter in her honor. Her majesty’s beloved husband Prince Philip died in April. Despite a pandemic, family scandal, and death — all valid reasons to leave her position — Queen Elizabeth has remained dedicated to her rule.

New Idea has always touted the rumor that the queen would be stepping down. In March 2020, they claimed Prince William and Kate Middleton had taken over her duties during the coronavirus lockdown. Similarly, a story from this April falsely reported that the queen’s oldest grandson had already been coronated, with plans for the current monarch to step down. A report from May 2020 said her will had been leaked to the public, indicating that she was stepping down as sovereign. As Gossip Cop predicted, none of that happened.

Britney Spears Has Her Day In Court And Makes Some Shocking Accusations: ‘I’m So Angry, It’s Insane’

For the first time since her conservatorship was put in place in 2008, Britney Spears spoke in public and in open court about how she feels about it. She didn’t hold back and some of her accusations she laid out for the judge are shocking, even given the context of the conservatorship. According to the singer she’s “so angry, it’s insane.”

As Gossip Cop has reported in the past, the singer’s conservatorship is complicated. Jamie has been in charge since it was first imposed after Britney’s very public mental breakdown in 2008, which landed her in the hospital twice. It’s also incredibly restrictive, according to an article by the New York Times published yesterday. The 39-year-old singer told a court in 2016 that she didn’t even get final say over what color her kitchen cabinets were painted. Jamie has controlled virtually every, from her finances to whom she dates.

In the last couple of years, things have gone from bad to worse for Jamie Spears. In January 2019, he suffered colon rupture that almost killed him, which forced Britney to cancel her upcoming Vegas residency. In September 2019, Kevin Federline, the father of Britney’s two teenage children, filed a restraining order against Jamie after alleging he had a physical altercation with one of their sons.

In August of last year, Britney and her lawyers asked the court to amend the conservatorship, asking that Jodi Montgomery, a long-time caregiver to Britney, be instated as the sole conservator, removing Jamie, though no decision was made at the time. With this latest appearance, she’s clearly had enough, laying out all the hoops she must jump through just to do things the rest of take for granted, like visiting a friend’s house without permission from the conservator. Now, she has told the judge, “It’s my wish and my dream for this to end.”

Appearing via Zoom, Britney Spears calmly laid out everything she doesn’t like about the conservatorship and what changes she’d like to see happen. She knows she’s become a cash cow for her family, and is trapped by her father’s conservatorship, saying, “I should not be in a conservatorship when I can work and provide for my family.” Maybe the most shocking accusation was how her sex life is being controlling, Britney says she wants to get married and have a baby, but, “I have an IUD in my body right now that won’t let me have a baby and my conservators won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out.”

What this means, in the long run, is still unclear, as the courts will have to make a decision on the future of the conservatorship. While the movement to #freebritney has grown over the last few years, it’s ultimately in the judge’s hand now, but as Britney said in her appearance today, she “just wants [her] life back.”
