    Why would you think that?

    Awkward in what way exactly?  I'd have thought having young blood on the Throne was an advantage, not a disadvantage.   The fact that Queen Elizabeth II has been Queen for so long has given the country stability.  Prince Charles may not see it quite like that - waiting, and waiting, but the sad part of being an heir is he/she has to suffer loss first.

    Define 'young'

    Elizabeth II was in her mid 20s

    Victoria was 18

    Wilhelmina was 10

    Their countries thrived while these queens were in their youth

    Victoria was 18 when she became queen

    It was not awkward for the UK to be headed by a young monarch, who was almost 26 years old when she  ascended the throne. Elizabeth had been preparing for this role as soon as she knew that she was an heir. She had studied the constitution and the monarch's role from  Henry Marten, Vice-Provost of Eton College; Elizabeth also learned from her father, George VI, who talked with her about the job, keeping her informed on what was going on, how to do one's best as a leader.

    Elizabeth was far from the youngest monarch. Richard II, Edward V, Henry VI, Edward VI were all much younger, some children, another teen-aged, than the young adult Elizabeth II.

    Probably not since the "Virgin Queen Elizabeth" was in her 20s when she began reigning.

    I can't think of any reason why that might be awkward...for a country...
