None of us in the royal family want to be king or queen— Prince Harry

Prince Harry; father, Prince Charles and brother, Prince William

Prince Harry has made the privilege of being member of a royal family looks as something no one should crave or admire, even as he said none of them is aspiring to take up the duty of king or queen.

In case you missed it (really, where were you?), Prince Harry said in an interview with Newsweek that: “Is there any one of the Royal Family who wants to be king or queen? I don’t think so.”

We believe the Prince’s statement must be born out of consensus, the disposition of most of the royal family members.

There’s nothing like a good old royal rumpus to lighten the mood in the midst of grim times. Prince Harry has provided us with a humdinger. You could even say that he’s discharging his duty with aplomb in stirring it up. Duty is, after all, what the Windsor family is supposed to be all about, and that duty is what the latest fuss is all about.

Well, don’t be afraid. Prince Harry is not a direct line to the throne, four years ago when Prince George was born. There’s even another child from Prince William and great granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, Princess Charlotte. With this, one might not really need to worry, since Prince Harry is on number 5 in order of succession to the throne of British throne.

Nevertheless, that did not stop tabloid headlines, analyses from pages (including this one) from talking about it.

 

The truth will not also stop commentators from pushing their pen in Prince Harry’s direction, especially as he plans to take his American actress wife-to-be, Meghan Markle, to the altar next year May.

Prince William, Prince Harry breaks silence on their mother’s death 20 years later

In a new BBC documentary, Prince William and Prince Harry reveal how they learned about their mother’s heartbreaking death in 1997 and how their father, Prince Charles, and grandmother Queen Elizabeth comforted them in the aftermath.

“One of the hardest things for a parent to have to do is to tell your children that your other parent has died,” Harry said.

Continuing he said, “How you deal with that, I don’t know. But you know, he was there for us. He was the one out of two left, and he tried to do his best and to make sure that we were protected and looked after. But you know, he was going through the same grieving process as well”.

On his part, William said, “I remember just feeling completely numb, disoriented, dizzy. You feel very, very confused. And you keep asking yourself, ‘Why me?’ All the time, ‘Why? What have I done? Why? Why has this happened to us?'”

Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince Harry during Diana’s funeral

William and Harry were 15 and 12, respectively, when their mother died in a car crash in Paris. The young princes were vacationing at Balmoral Castle in Scotland with their father when they heard the news of Diana’s death. Elizabeth was criticized at the time for shielding the boys from the public and allowing them to grieve in private. William and Harry praised their grandmother for putting family first, despite immense public pressure for the royals to return to London.

William reflected on the complicated feelings he and his brother were having in the immediate aftermath of Diana’s death and the brave faces they tried to put on in public, saying, “I think it was a very hard decision for my grandmother to make.”

“She felt very torn between being a grandmother to William and Harry and her queen role,” William added.

Harry said, “It was a case of ‘How do we let the boys grieve in privacy but, at the same time, when is the right time for them to put on their prince hats and carry out duties?'”

“Diana, 7 Days” will be broadcast on BBC 1 on Sunday, Aug. 27, at 7:30 p.m. ET
