Prince Harry's Extraordinary Interview Indiscretion Casts New Doubt On The Future Of The Monarchy

April 04, 2018

In what many would consider to be an ill-advised admission, Prince Harry shed new light on the future of the Monarchy, and it may shock you to hear the details of what he said in a recent interview.

There has been a lot of talk in recent months about whether or not Charles will actually ascend to the Throne, or if he will be skipped over in favor of Prince William.

Although it seems Charles has been waiting forever to take his rightful place as King, there have been discussions as to whether or not his serving as Monarch would be in the best interest of the Commonwealth.

After all, he is divorced and he has married a divorced woman which, until recently, would have disqualified him from becoming King, outright. Not to mention that he is quite unpopular in many circles.

Now, thanks to relaxed rules within the Church of England, Charles is considered eligible to take his rightful place in the line of succession - making him next to wear the Crown.

It's natural to wonder what the parties involved actually think about this, and one Newsweek reporter asked exactly that when he conducted an exclusive interview with the Prince, who is currently fifth in line to the Throne. "Is there any one of the Royal Family who wants to be King or Queen?"

To which Harry responded, "I don't think so, but we will carry out our duties at the right time." Harry seemed to indicate that the sense of duty still remains the guiding principle within the Royal Family.

He added, "We are not doing this for ourselves, but for the greater good of the people." But it appears that even this noble endeavor is wearing down a bit as the generations change.

Harry and his brother Prince William have been criticized about their seemingly lax attitude about the performance of their Royal duties, noting that they take on far fewer obligations than even their elderly grandparents, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh do.

Prince Harry's remarks have caused many to wonder if the Monarchy has outlived its usefulness. It would be hard to say goodbye to this centuries-old institution, but only time will tell if that is the direction that the Commonwealth is heading.
