Prince William has shown he is a man ready for the role of king despite his “initial reluctance”, a royal expert has claimed.

The young royal has known from a very young age that he is likely to be king someday in the future.

However, as a child, William is said to have often confided to his mother, the late Princess Diana, that he “didn’t want to be king.”

This prompted Prince Harry to joke, “If you don’t want the job, I’ll get it.”

And according to former royal correspondent Jennie Bond, the royal burden “were heavy” on young William’s shoulders.

However, as she approaches her 40th birthday later this year, Jennie says her outlook for the future is different.

She said OK! : “I think we did see a reluctance to take on the role before, in his early teens, he knew his destiny like none of us do from such a young age.”

“But in recent years he has convincingly shown that he is the man for the role and that he cares about being king.

Whether he’s been involved in making family decisions, handling scandals, or making sensitive commitments, William is often at the center of it all.

In fact, last October, the Mirror’s royal editor, Russell Myers, referred to William as a “trusted lieutenant” to the Queen.

William not only seems popular within the family, but he is also popular with the public.

Andrew Lownie, author of several historical books on the royals, told the Express: “We are in a period of what can be called a soft regency, in effect the Queen is falling behind, not playing many roles.

“The roles that he is doing are being accompanied by Prince Charles, everyone is preparing for Carlos and Camila.

“As a result, William and Kate, who seem to be very popular, take the place that Charles and Camilla had.

“Because they’re, I’d say almost more popular than Charles and Camilla, they’ve probably been given a bigger role.”
