    In an address to Parliament, King Charles II conveys clearly that the next heir to the throne is the Duke of York. He states that the Duke being the heir is a right ordained by God and considers anyone who denies that truth an enemy. At the end of his speech, King Charles II declares Parliament dissolved and dismisses the members of the House of Commons.
