Will Prince William be named King this week?

A decision on whether the Prince of Wales should succeed his mother as head of the Commonwealth is expected later this week, Downing Street says.

British Prime Minister Theresa May's spokesman declined to say whether she thought the position should go to Charles. "He has been a proud supporter of the Commonwealth for more than four decades and has spoken passionately about the organisation's unique diversity", the spokesman told reporters.

The 53 leaders of the Commonwealth may decide this week if Prince Charles will become their next head upon the Queen's death.

The Queen is the current head of the Commonwealth.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the Charles should not automatically take over from the Queen, and suggested it could be a role that works on rotational basis.

Charles will succeed his mother for the United Kingdom crown in the future, but it's not a guarantee that he would be made the head of the Commonwealth as the role is not hereditary. "I just don't think it should be him".

Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland said the Windsor Castle gathering was a chance for the leaders to talk one-to-one without outside interference.

The Queen has been pushing for her eldest son's succession for years.

Asked if he would like to see Charles in the role, Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told the same programme: "That is a matter for the 53". At the last Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Malta in 2015, she had endorsed for Charles to continue her role.

Ms Osamor said that someone who was "level-headed, someone people respect, but also someone who thinks outside the box" would be a better candidate. "That enables them to deal with some quite tricky, sensitive issues, but collectively, collegiately and as part of the family", she said.
