LONDON- The members of Commonwealth have started secret discussions to decide who will head the union after the death of Queen Elizabeth.

The position of head of Commonwealth is not heredity, meaning Prince Charles may not necessarily get the post although he will become the King.

A gathering to this effect will take place in London. A source told BBC, "I imagine the question of the succession, however distasteful it may naturally be, will come up."

Queen Elizabeth will turn 92 years old in April and was appointed head of Commonwealth at her coronation in 1953.
