Prince William admits he doesn’t ‘lie awake at night hoping to become king’


In a resurfaced video, Prince William reveals the devastating reason why he isn’t exactly jumping up at the opportunity to become king

Prince William has admitted that while he plans to be a “modern King”, his future as the Monarch is not his main priority

With only his father ahead of him in line to the throne, it’s no wonder that Prince William is often inundated with questions about his thoughts on becoming king.

The crown is first set to be passed down to 73-year-old Charles, Prince of Wales – but that hasn’t stopped the Duke of Cambridge from acknowledging the weight of responsibility that he’ll need to maintain as the future monarch of the country.

Speaking to royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell from Marie Claire, the prince opened up about his thoughts on one day being King, revealing that it won’t be an entirely positive milestone.

The prince told Witchell: “I certainly don’t lie awake at night waiting or hoping for it because it sadly means my family has moved on and I don’t want that” and admitted that although he plans to be a “modern King” , his future as the Monarch is “not at the top of [his] priority list”.

Back in 2017, his younger brother, Prince Harry, expressed a similar view when he too acknowledged the heavy responsibility that comes with being king.

Harry told Newsweek: “Is there any one of the Royal Family who wants to be King or Queen? I don’t think so,” before adding: “[But] we will carry out our duties at the right time.”

But it seems a much younger member of the royal family is also coming to terms with his royal duties. Prince William’s eldest son, Prince George, will one day sit on the throne and is already being gently prepared by his parents for his future role as the head of the British Monarchy.

Royal expert Duncan Larcombe told OK! Magazine: “George is only just beginning to understand his destiny, but Kate has got the journey planned.”

“That really struck me after seeing George in his first grown-up suit with his parents at the Euros final in July,” Larcombe added.

“People were asking why they hadn’t let him wear an England shirt ‘like a normal eight-year-old’. William was apparently keen on the idea, but it was Kate, the former commoner, who said no. She was showing George that being ‘on duty’ requires a different approach… he has to learn to don the royal armour.”

Luckily for Prince George, it’ll be a while before he must take on the responsibility of being king – he’ll have to get past his dad Prince William and granddad Prince Charles first!
