Probably wishful thinking by a few letter writers in the Daily Mail.
Probably - it certainly misses the point that any such arrangement would have to sorted out before queen dies, as Chas becomes king upon the instant of her death.
However if I were in Chas's shoes, I would be inclined to be king for a year or two, but not be crowned, and then abdicate in favour of Bill.
I can't see that happening. It's the job Charles has been groomed for (can you say that word in relation to the Windsors?!) since he was born.
It's true that he is nothing like as popular as William but he doesn't have anything to abdicate for.
