British Queen Elizabeth II is reportedly preparing her grandson Prince William for more important roles in the future.
The 95-year-old monarch is sending Prince William to Dubai to represent her on his first official trip to the United Arab Emirates.
Queen Elizabeth, who will mark her platinum anniversary this year, is reportedly sending the Duke of Cambridge to Dubai at the request of Britain’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.
Elizabeth was proclaimed queen on February 6, 1952 after the death of her father, George VI, although her coronation was in 1953.
At 95, she will be the only British monarch to have ruled for 70 years, and she has called for anniversary celebrations to promote a sense of unity.
Prince William, the eldest son of Prince Charles and Diana, is the second in line of succession to the British throne.
He is visiting Dubai on February 10th.
