No, Queen Elizabeth doesn't have any plans to retire.
In response to renewed speculation that Her Majesty, 93, is planning on retiring in the next several years to make way for her son, Prince Charles, a spokesperson for the Prince of Wales' office released a rare statement shooting down the rumors.
"There are no plans for any change in arrangements at the age of 95 -- or any other age,” the spokesman declared in a statement released to People.
The new round of murmurs that Elizabeth will retire soon were prompted by the recent announcement that Prince Andrew would be indefinitely stepping away from official royal duties in the aftermath of his widely-panned interview with the BBC, during which he addressed his ties with Jeffrey Epstein.
The Sun reported that it was Prince Charles who pushed his mother to strip Andrew of his duties, claiming that the move "proves he can run the firm" and that "a transition is plainly already underway" for Charles to take over the throne for his mother when she turns 95 in about 18 months time.
