Royal latest: Insiders say Prince Charles plans on big changes when he is King | Royal | News

He may become king one day and Robert Jobson’s ‘Charles at Seventy’, looks at the first 70 years of his life so far. Upon becoming King, Charles would become the Head of the Church, like his mother, Queen Elizabeth II is currently. According to Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Charles wants to set new ground upon becoming the Head of the Church.

Mr Jobson notes: “Clearly, our next Supreme Governor of the Church of England plans to do the job a little differently.

“‘He is an individual who wants to chart new territory and that will be interesting indeed,’ says Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury. ‘He is very outspoken.’”

Mr Jobson also wrote how Charles has cultivated many other religions in order to have a more balanced understanding of faiths around the world.

Mr Jobson believes faith has been important for Charles: “During his visits around the country he makes sure he is balanced, visiting Sikh, Muslim, Hindu and Christian communities.

“He has studied the Koran in-depth and has been a student of the Arabic language for years.

“He has also visited Judaism in depth and is close to Jonathan Sacks, the former Chief Rabbi.

“He believes that both faiths have a ‘great deal in common’ with Christianity. ‘The future surely lies in rediscovering the universal truths that dwell at heart of these religions,’ he has said.”

Mr Jobson explains discussion between faith communities is a long-term aim of Charles.

He writes: “The prince’s belief in interfaith dialogue has been on his agenda.

“He believes that talking openly and honestly can only help strengthen communities and understanding.

“He told his biographer Jonathan Dimbleby in 1994, ‘When you begin to look at what… they are saying you find that so much of the wisdom that is represented within these religions coincides.’”

England renounced the papacy when King Henry VIII was unable to secure an annulment of his marriage to Catherine of Aragon.
