The queen is dead, long live the king

No, not really. However, should the queen snuff it, the heir might not be Charles, but Albert Turnbull.


The BBC has found someone who is descended from King Harold as part of an alternative history where William of Normandy didn't win the Battle of Hastings. However, Albert Turnbull is also descended from William of Normandy and Alfred the Great - which means, I think, that he might have a superior claim to the throne that the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha-Windsor lineage.

I'm not a fan of the monarchy and this just shows how arbitrary it is.
