Queen Elizabeth

There are indications that Prince Charles is preparing to take over the leadership of the British Royals whenever his mother, Queen Elizabeth turns 95.

The Queen’s oldest son met with his father at Sandringham yesterday, November 26, to discuss the continuing fallout from his brother’s disastrous TV interview about his links to Jeffry Epstein.

Prince Charles’ key role in “retiring” Prince Andrew from public life has fed speculation he is preparing to become “shadow King”, which would see him control day-to-day royal affairs while his mother remains monarch.

Queen Elizabeth will turn 95 in 18 months. 95 was also the age at which her husband Prince Philip withdrew from his public duties.

There is talk among courtiers that she may use the milestone to allow her son to become Prince Regent, the Sun reports.

A royal source told the paper: “The scandal surrounding Andrew and Epstein gave Charles an opportunity to step in to show that he can run The Firm. No one is bigger than the institution of the Royal Family. Not even Andrew, the Queen’s favourite son.

“Charles recognised that and acted decisively — like the king he may well soon be. This was the moment when Charles stepped up as Prince Regent, the Shadow King”

A combined team of riot policemen and operatives of the State Security Services (SSS) are currently searching the residence of Ibrahim Magu, the suspended boss of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Recall that Magu was suspended as Acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday.

President Buhari had set up the panel to probe various allegations levelled against Magu, following a petition by the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, and the Department of State Service (DSS).

Meanwhile, a source close to the presidential panel set up to investigate Mr Magu said operatives were detailed to conduct searches at Mr Magu’s private home in Karu and his official residence in the Maitama District of the Nigerian capital.

“As I speak with you our men are on their way to Maitama, having finished with his house in Karu,” the source said.

A domestic staff at the residence confirmed the presence of the security men as of 7:30 pm.

He said the security operatives arrived in four vehicles and spent over an hour searching the house.

“They searched the house but found nothing so they wrote a report and both of us signed,” said a security guard in the house who was not authorised to speak.

Mr Magu was arrested in front of the EFCC office in Abuja by security officials on Monday, over allegations of corruption, insubordination and abuse of office by Attorney-General Abubakar Malami.

He was driven to the Presidential Villa, Abuja, where he appeared before a presidential panel investigating alleged corruption and insubordination.

After his appearance before the panel, he was taken into custody by the police, where he was held overnight by detectives.
