So according to this George V was King, and father to Edward VIII and George VI. When he died, Edward VIII ascended to the throne, but gave it up after 3 months to marry Ms Wallis Simpson. His brother, George VI, ascended... 

For reference see the movie, The King's Speech.   😊

My Dad thinks Elizabeth didn't want Charles to be King, so she was trying to out live him.

But his tenure probably won't be all that long statistically speaking...

If he'd have become King at 25 like she became Queen, there'd be Royal Progeny spread all over the planet...

I simply can't believe the vitriol in that sewer called Twitter, and in some of the press over The Queen's passing... Unbelievable...

Good trivia question: during her reign, who was the only U. S. President Queen Elizabeth II did not meet with?

I would guess Truman since he would have the shortest time as president during her time as queen.

Technically, due to the way the question was framed during her reign, that would be correct too, as when she met Truman, she was not yet Queen...

Kinda like Miss Congeniality 😉
