Commonwealth meeting LIVE: Debate over Charles succeeding the Queen

Commonwealth leaders are meeting behind closed doors to decide if Prince Charles should succeed his mother as head of the 53-nation body.

Yesterday the Queen was keen to make the Prince of Wales the new leader, saying it was her ‘sincere wish’ that he takes over. 

The representatives are expected to approve the move when they meet at Windsor Castle, but it’s not known if there will be an announcement following the meeting. 

Meanwhile, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has cut short his attendance at the summit in London to deal with violent protests in his home country.
