Abdicating monarchs?

In Holland [here] Queen Beatrix hands over to her son.
That's what they do in the Netherlands.

We can only hope that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth will not even consider the idea.
As a general rule, those who are so fond of demystifying and demythologising ancient institutions [a Guardian poll here] are not among their most ardent defenders...

  1. I really don't think the Queen would consider following her uncle's precedent in any circumstances whatever.
