How Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Exit May Mean Prince George Will Never Be King
As third in line to the throne, most royal watchers assume that Prince George will become the King of the United Kingdom someday. But Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s stunning exit has rocked the royal family like never before, and one expert believes George will never sit on the throne as a result of their decision. Here’s a look at the heartbreaking reason Prince George may never be King.
The future of the monarchy is in jeopardy
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently stepped down as senior members of the royal family in a move that reportedly blindsided the royal family. While Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, and Prince William scrambled to right the ship, there is one person who believes the monarchy will never be the same.
During an interview on a radio show in Australia, psychic Georgina Walker predicted that Harry and Meghan’s decision will forever change the royal family. According to Express, Walker believes that the monarchy will undergo big changes in the coming years, and one of those will make Prince William the last person to sit on the throne, meaning Prince George would never be King.
“I knew it was going to happen, I predicted the Queen would refresh the monarchy to make it a younger approach,” Walker shared. “I said when George was born, he would never be King.”
The psychic added that Megxit will have lasting consequences for the royals and could lead to significant changes in the near future which would directly affect Prince George and his siblings. She also believes that Prince Harry and Meghan will have a difficult time funding their endeavors now that they are no longer receiving money from the crown.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their departure at the beginning of 2020. Not only are they becoming financially independent, but they are also splitting their time between the UK and Canada.
Prince Harry speaks out
In the days and weeks following Megxit, Harry met with senior members of the royal family to iron out the details of his exit. As a result of their decision, Harry and Meghan are giving up their royal titles and will no longer rely on public funding.
The Sussexes are also going to pay back the $3 million that was used to renovate their home in Windsor, Frogmore Cottage. They have yet to buy a house in Canada but are reportedly looking for a place to settle down.
In the meantime, Prince Harry recently spoke about his decision to step down during a royal engagement in London. Harry revealed that he did not make the decision lightly and that he saw no other way to give his family the life they deserve.
“Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the Commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn’t possible,” Harry shared. “I’ve accepted this, knowing that it doesn’t change who I am or how committed I am.”
Prince Harry added that he hopes leaving the royal spotlight will lead to a more peaceful life for his wife and son, Archie Harrison. Meghan Markle has yet to comment on the situation.
Fans react to Megxit
Royal watchers around the world have not reacted kindly to the news of Harry and Meghan stepping down.
Some fans have voiced their support for the couple, but others believe that Meghan has been planning an exit strategy since day one. There has even been some speculation that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will get divorced in the coming years.
Fans have pointed out that Meghan has a tendency to quit things around the two-year mark. Her first marriage, for example, only lasted 23 months. Her stint in the royal family was also cut short well before two years.
That does not mean Prince Harry and Meghan are headed for a split, but it is something to watch out for.
What happens if Prince George sits on the throne?
If the psychic is wrong and Prince George does become King one day, Kate Middleton’s title will change (assuming she is still around to see George sit on the throne).
When William inherits the crown after Charles, Kate will be given the title of Queen Consort. Her duties will be very similar to what Prince Philip has done over the years as Queen Elizabeth’s consort.
In the event that Kate outlives William, she will take on a new title once George sits on the throne. George’s spouse will be given the title of consort, while Kate will be called Queen Mother.
In her new role, Kate Middleton will support Prince George’s reign and still appear in public on behalf of the royal family.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have begun their new life in Canada with Archie, here’s hoping they find the happiness and quite life they deserve.
