In a recent interview, Prince Harry discussed his role in the royal family. He has possibly shocked many after he confessed that he does not wish to be king. Moreover, that nobody wants to be on the British throne.
“We are not doing this for ourselves, but for the greater good of the people,” he told Newsweek magazine of his family’s restricted job choices.
“Is there any one of the royal family who wants to be King or Queen? “I don’t think so, but we will carry out our duties at the right time.”
And now the chances for Harry of having to rule have decreased. A few days ago Kate Middleton and Prince William revealed that they are expecting their third baby.
Anyway, Prince Harry was definitely happy about the great news, that was announced after she canceled royal engagement due to morning sickness. “Fantastic. Great,” he said about the baby, cranking out more superlatives. “Very, very happy.”

When asked on how Middleton is coping with her condition, Prince Harry said: “I haven’t seen her for a while but I think I she’s okay.”
Anyway, there is a possibility that Harry is hoping that Kate is pregnant with twins. Kate and William’s third baby will bump Harry down to 6th in line for the throne.
Prince Harry got third in line, behind Prince Charles and Prince William, when Kate Middleton got pregnant with Prince George. His tiny little nephews moved him out of position. And now the royal baby number 3 will pull him to number six.
It means that he is getting closer to becoming a normal person. According to The Succession to the Crown Act 2013 the first six people in line to the throne must ask the permission of the monarch’s, before proposing to someone.
If Middleton is pregnant with twins, Harry will be moved to number seven. It means that he will no long belong to the first six people in line to the throne and he will be able to skip the formality of having to seek for Queen Elizabeth approval before marrying.
In the wake of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s romantic trip to Africa, Harry sparked a rumor that he and Meghan will soon announce their engagement.
So if the two do decide to get married, Meghan Markle will automatically take her husband’s title. As Harry is “His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales”, Meghan will be “Her Royal Highness Princess Henry of Wales”.
This means she won’t be “Princess Meghan.”
“Most likely, he will be created a Duke. Sussex is available so Markle would be HRH the Duchess of Sussex. Her rank would be a princess by marriage of the United Kingdom, Great Britain, and Northern Ireland,”– Royal Historian Marlene Koenig said.
Talking about having kids, Harry shared that if he does have they would have an ordinary life.
“Even if I was King, I would do my own shopping. But it’s a tricky balancing act. We don’t want to dilute the magic.”
