Time for Queen to stand aside

KING Juan Carlos' abdication of the throne is commendable. Like Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands before him, the time has come for a renewal of the monarchy.

Queen Elizabeth II has been a source of strength, unity and cohesion in Britain. Her grace, dedication and intuitive empathy have had far-reaching domestic and international clout. However, it is time to inject young and fresh blood into the monarchy.
