PRINCE Charles could have competition for his position as next in line to the throne, as an American has launched a bid for his title.
The royal family has been warned by Allan V. Evans that he intends to liberate their estates, assets, lands and titles within 30 days.
According to the eccentric, who took out an advert in yesterday’s Times to stake his claim, he is a descendant of the first king of Wales.
Mr Evans, of Colorado, says his ancestral links date back to the third century and that he is a descendent of Cunedda Wledig — an early Welsh leader in the 5th century.
He goes on to claim that his ancestors were also the forebears of the royal houses of ‘Lloyd, Tudor and Stuart’ and he has ancient links to the King of the Isle of Man. However, the Queen need not worry just yet — as he has been kind enough to wait until after she dies before assuming the throne.
The advert says Mr Evans: ‘Shall not out of greatest and most deepest respect depose her in life for the great service and selfless sacrifice that she and her husband has rendered to this great nation.’
But he isn’t finished there. He concludes his return to claim the crown is the fulfilment of JRR Tolkien’s writing in The Lord Of The Rings. ‘For the Legend was not a myth but was indeed true, and more than a mere Tolkien story, that the men of the West are now returning and now is the time of the return of the King,’ he writes.
The attorney general has not yet received any claim from Mr Evans.
