MONTREAL – This won’t be the warmest way to send off Prince Charles.
A new documentary is airing on the final day of his trip to Canada and its main premise is hardly flattering: it predicts Charles’ coronation could spell the demise of the monarchy in Canada.
The documentary – “After Elizabeth II: Monarchy in Peril” – notes that while the Queen is widely liked, people just don’t feel the same way about her offspring.
It says many still harbour ill will toward Prince Charles for his failed marriage to Diana and don’t like his outspokenness and quirky ideas.
The documentary notes a Canadian poll where two-thirds of respondents expressed support for ditching the monarchy once the Queen dies.
Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, are currently on an 11-day Canadian tour.
The documentary will be broadcast on CBC on Nov. 12, just as the royal couple departs.
