FILE - In this Monday, June 4, 2012 file photo Britain's Queen Elizabeth II shakes the hand of her son Prince Charles at the end of the Queen's Jubilee Concert in front of Buckingham Palace, London. The abdication of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands sparked some speculation in the British press Tuesday Jan. 29, 2013 about whether Queen Elizabeth II, at 86, might follow suit and step down so her son Charles could become King. But commentators quickly noted that in the past Elizabeth — who seems to be in excellent health — had indicated that she regarded being queen as a job for life. (AP Photo/Joel Ryan, File)
