Prince Harry decided to talk about the monarchy during a new interview. The prince opened up about his thoughts on monarchy during an interview with Newsweek. The star claimed that the monarchy is a force for good, but still he believes that no one in the royal family is very eager to take on the role of a King or Queen.
Harry claimed that the whole family cares about the country and the people, but no one wants to become king or queen. This also includes Harry’s brother and his sister-in-law, Prince William and Kate Middleton. Harry revealed that he doesn’t want the throne, but the prince said that this does not mean that he will not complete all his duties as a prince.
“We are involved in modernizing the British monarchy. We are not doing this for ourselves but for the greater good of the people,” Prince Harry said. “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.” The prince also claimed that people still need monarchy and they need the royal family.
“The monarchy is a force for good,” Harry said. “We want to carry on the positive atmosphere that the queen has achieved for over 60 years, but we won’t be trying to fill her boots,” he explained. It seems that there is a reasoning behind these intentions to modernize the monarchy. Harry actually revealed a very emotional moment from his life, linked to the funeral of his mother, Princess Diana, in 1997. At that time, Harry was only 13 years old.
“My mother had just died, and I had to walk a long way behind her coffin, surrounded by thousands of people watching me while millions more did on television,” Harry said during his new interview. “I don’t think any child should be asked to do that, under any circumstances. I don’t think it would happen today,” he added.
