The BBC has learned that talks are secretly underway to determine who will succeed Queen Elizabeth II as head of the Commonwealth. The role does not automatically pass to the Prince of Wales when the Queen dies. She will be 92 this year.

James Landale, BBC:

The Commonwealth has set up a “high level group” to look at the way the international organisation is governed.

This group is meeting later, officially to review how the Commonwealth is run by its secretariat and governors.
