'No question' of queen abdicating, claims Cameron

Robert Hutton

British Prime Minister David Cameron yesterday rejected any suggestion that Queen Elizabeth II might abdicate, or that the crown might skip a generation and go straight to Prince William instead of her heir, Prince Charles.

"Both of those things are out of the question," Mr Cameron told the BBC's 'Andrew Marr Show,' in an interview to mark the queen's diamond jubilee.

"You get the sense that she will go on doing the amazing job she's been doing as long as she can."

Elizabeth (86) is celebrating 60 years on the throne with a weekend of pageantry. Only one other English monarch, her great- great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, ruled for as long.
