William Regal has opened up on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II and given his thoughts on King Charles III.
The entire world is still mourning the passing of her majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, who died on September 8th, 2022. This has included many members of the wrestling community, with the likes of Anthony Ogogo, Will Ospreay, and Dustin Rhodes sharing their thoughts.
Now, speaking on his “Gentleman Villain” podcast, William Regal has sent his condolences to those mourning and given his opinion on the new monarch, King Charles III.
There’s a lot going on obviously with England at the moment in England, and very deepest condolences to anybody who’s [mourning]. Whatever they feel of The Queen, my whole life, 54 years, that’s all I’ve ever known, is our queen and so not so sure about the son taking over but hopefully, the son, he seems like a nice lad.
Before discussing the royal passing on his podcast, Regal was one of the first wrestlers to comment on the news.
Rest well my Queen.

William Regal was born in Codsall, a large village in South Staffordshire, England. Even though the wrestling legend spent a major part of his later career in the United States, his British roots were always a large part of his character. Even today, he has named his AEW faction “Blackpool Combat Club” in reference to the seaside city.
Leaders from all around the world will join members of Britain’s royal family at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II on Monday 19th September. It will be held inside Westminster Abbey, where she was both married and later crowned as monarch more than 70 years ago.
