What does it mean when a king or queen abdicate their throne?
A monarch usually rules his or her nation until he or she dies, or in some cases, deposed. Abdication is the act of relinquishing the throne voluntarily. The reasons for abdication vary. For instance, King Edward VIII abdicated in order to marry Wallis Warfield Simpson, an American divorcee. The Dutch Queens are well known for 'retiring' (abdicating) so their daughters can take over.
A throne is a fancy chair that a king or queen sits on. Sitting on the throne is a mark of their status as monarch.
Do you mean to abdicate.
If you mean Wallis Simpson, it was Edward VIII of England, who then had to abdicate his throne in favor of his younger brother George VI, father of the present queen.

Assuming you mean the monarchs in Britain only, there were actually three: Queen Victoria, King Edward VII, and King George V.
Abdicate is either the act of giving up oneâ??s throne or stepping down. A sort of monarch retirement. Although the term is commonly used when referring to monarchs, it can also mean anyone who rejects or renounces their responsibility.
It actually means the existing King has now died and therefore the next in line to the throne (be it a prince or princess) will take the role as the new king or queen (depending on their gender) immediately and so they add the phrase Long live the (new) king (or queen)
Prince Charles is next in line to the throne. However, that does not necessarily mean he will be the next king. He could die before the queen does. He could decide to let Prince William take over instead of him. So we cannot be certain.
Will not inherit the throne
It means a chair for the king. The ruler is sitting there.
No-one, as far as I know! I think perhaps you mean 'abdicated'. This means that a monarch gives up his or her right to the throne, standing down in favour of someone else. Edward VIII did this because he wanted to marry Wallis Simpson, a divorcee. According to the Constitution, he could not do this and remain king, so he chose to abdicate.

When the Queen passes away, it will mean Charles will take the throne. After Charles it would be William, then William's eldest child. However, if William does not have any children, Prince Harry will take over the throne. It will then be passed down to Harry's eldest child. Then, if Harry does not have any children, Andrew will take over. So Andrew might never be King.
