Queen Elizabeth II's longevity has helped anchor Britain during an era of unprecedented change, but has also left the royal family an aging institution.The 89-year-old queen, who next week surpasses Queen Victoria to become the country's longest-reigning monarch, shows no sign of abdicating, even if she has stepped back a little from public duties in favor of her 66-year-old son and heir Charles.Charles' son Prince William is second in line to the throne and his eldest son George third, followed by George's little sister Charlotte – a strong dynasty that could continue for another century.Many commentators predict a slow period of transition of power to Charles.A recent ComRes survey for the Daily Mail newspaper found that 79 percent of respondents liked William, compared to 77 percent for the queen and 53 percent for Charles.
