Would this mean he's effectively abdicating his line of accession to the throne?

No, as the Church of England (where the monarch is the head) has allowed divorcees to marry in the C of E since 2002.

Intersting.

Does that mean any 'commoner' (even someone from Jesmond) could become King or Queen.

And in the event of their partners death would become reigning monarch?

To be fair, would you want to be king. Personally I much prefer being able to do whatever I want when I want.

 

Also, knowing you are a devout atheist, you would struggle with the fact that the Monarchy and the church are so entwined.

Are you sure there Yoyo?

You've not been paying attention, have you?

 

The line of succession remains the line of succession regardless as to whether the current monarch has a partner or not.

 

I.E. If our present queen were to pop her clogs, Charles would become King, not Philip and if Charles  became King and then popped HIS, William would become  Monarch, not Camilla.......and so on.

Even if the next in line was a minor, they would still become King/Queen. A regent might well be elected until the new monarch became of age and this regent could well be the bereaved partner of the recently deceased monarch, but as the monarch no longer has direct rule it would be a position in name only.

 

Happy dreaming!

I think it's lovely - I really think they make a lovely couple and I'm ignoring all of the miseries on Facebook with their horrible comments

I think that's advisable as a general life rule anyway. 

Well said 👍👏 

I agree! 

I don’t do FB but, in RL, I tend to ignore the Negative Nancy types and leave them to wallow in their self inflicted pool of negativity.
