Prince Harry Thinks This One Thing Will Happen to Him When Prince William’s Family Becomes Head of the British Monarchy
Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex and sixth in line to the British throne, has a very specific idea of what will happen to him once his older brother, Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, and his children, inherit the throne. Keep reading to learn what sad thing Prince Harry thinks will happen to him once his brother’s family leads the British monarchy.
Prince Harry has a ‘smallish window when people are interested’ in him
During an interview with Newsweek, Prince Harry offered up what he thinks will happen to him once Prince William’s family run the British monarchy. “I feel there is just a smallish window when people are interested in me before [William’s children] take over, and I’ve got to make the most of it,” Prince Harry said. That’s why the prince told Newsweek, he’s hurrying “to make something of my life.”
At this given moment in time, the world is captivated by Prince Harry. His wife, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, gave birth to their first child, a baby boy, just yesterday.
A photo call will mark yet-to-be-named Baby Sussex’s first public appearance tomorrow. Right now, it’s hard to imagine the world losing interest in Prince Harry or his growing family.
Before the birth of he and Markle’s son, the world couldn’t get enough of the couple’s May 2019 wedding or their relationship. Their determination for private, ordinary lives, or as ordinary as can be given the circumstances, makes them even more intriguing.
Maintaining an ‘ordinary life’ is important to Prince Harry
Ordinary is something Prince Harry wants in his everyday life. Going back to his childhood with his mother, the late Princess Diana, the prince talked about having a grasp on “ordinary life.” “My mother took a huge part in showing me an ordinary life, including taking me and my brother to see homeless people,” he said.
Today, Prince Harry continues to make ordinary things part of his life to keep a solid grasp on the real world. “Thank goodness I’m not completely cut off from reality. People would be amazed by the ordinary life William and I live. I do my own shopping,” he said.
Even though he does ordinary tasks like go shopping, he has worries that only a prince or a celebrity might have. “Sometimes, when I come away from the meat counter in my local supermarket, I worry someone will snap me with their phone,” Prince Harry added.
During the interview with Newsweek, Prince Harry hadn’t yet become a father although he gave us an idea about what he wants for his family. “But I am determined to have a relatively normal life, and if I am lucky enough to have children, they can have one too,” Prince Harry said.
In the event the prince was to become head of the British monarchy, he’d still find ways to make ordinary things part of his life. “Even if I was king, I would do my own shopping,” he said.
When asked about the possibility of the royal family becoming too ordinary, Prince Harry responded, “It’s a tricky balancing act. We don’t want to dilute the magic….The British public and the whole world need institutions like it.”
For now and the foreseeable future, interest in Prince Harry remains strong while he continues to find ways to have an ordinary life in an extraordinary setting.
