This week’s Royal Central podcast looks ahead to the enthronement of the new Emperor of Japan. As well as the latest behind the scenes news on the guest list from our Deputy Editor, Brittani Barger, there’s also a debate about whether abdication is changing the way we view monarchies and questions about whether, in the 21st century, monarchs stepping aside is the preferred way of maintaining the stability of a ruling house.
We’d love to hear your thoughts. You can comment below or head to our Facebook page to start the debate. We hope you enjoy the podcast!
