Prince Charles is "entirely unsuitable" to be a king because of his out-of-date persona, a royal author has claimed.
Clive Irving, author of the latest biography The Last Queen, was asked of his opinion in the event that the Prince of Wales becomes the future king.
Speaking on Australia's Today Extra with hosts Sylvia Jeffreys and David Campbell, the expert shared his thoughts.
He said: "Entirely unsuitable. I think it is in danger of driving over a cliff as soon as Charles appears.
"It's a curious thing the Queen seems more modern than Charles.
"She seems very much timeless, whereas Charles is fundamentally an 18th-century figure. He hates many modern things.
"That wouldn't be a problem if he didn't try to impose his own taste on other people."
He claimed that Charles likes to remain in his "cocoon of 18th century", adding: "He likes to have sycophants around him, which is not a good sign of future ruler and he uses sycophants to reinforce his own weird ideas."
While both Sylvia and David gasp and respond in disbelief, Clive said: "It's a pity they can't jump straight from the Queen to William, they can't do that because that's not how the constitution works."
He also declared that the Queen "will likely be the last female monarch in England" after pointing out that all Her Majesty's immediate successors are male.
It came after a royal astrologer predicting that younger royals could be set to take on more of the Queen's high profile roles in 2021.
Debbie Frank wrote for Hello Magazine: "Turning 95 in April is a huge milestone birthday and the Queen's Spring stars are when joyful Jupiter makes a celebratory fly-past of her own Jupiter and Mars.
"Saturn also opposes her Moon, signifying a great marker point in her reign and a completion which could mean she will pass over some of the responsibilities to the younger royals.'
