Commonwealth group to meet amid reports it will discuss Queen's successor

A “high-level” group of Commonwealth leaders are meeting to review the governance of the Commonwealth nations – amid a report that the group will also discuss the succession to Queen Elizabeth when she dies.

At the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in 2015 the Queen told Commonwealth leaders she could not “wish to have been better supported and represented in the Commonwealth than by the Prince of Wales who continues to give so much to it with great distinction”.
