It’s hard to imagine a time when Queen Elizabeth will no longer reign! She has been part of our lives, history and commentary for so long that it’s going to take a lot of practice when we have to start saying “King Charles”!!
What an interesting idea. Although you refer to the First and Second Regency, there have been numerous regencies in English history – for instance during the minority of Henry III and the illness of Henry VI. Katherine of Aragon and Catherine Parr were also regents for Henry VIII while he was away at war. There are many others. However, I’m not sure of the legal statuses of these earlier regencies, so you are probably right in that the regency of George III is the only modern regency and any subsequent regency would be covered by the same statute.
