Why Prince William and Kate Middleton Are in no Rush to be King and Queen

Although Prince William and Kate Middleton have a bright and busy future together when they become king and queen, they are in no rush to be crowned.

The Royal Couple has been married since 2011. They dated for almost 10 years before Prince William popped the big question asking for her hand in marriage.

Although Royal Fans of the couple can't wait for them to take the throne as king and queen, it doesn't seem like they are in any hurry to take their crowns for a while.

According to what Prince Harry said at one time, no one actually wants to be crowned king and queen. He said the roles come with a lot of responsibility and no one in the Royal Family actually wants the title because of this.

In fact, Prince Harry said this during an interview in 2017, “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."

This reason alone may be the most important reason alone for Prince William and Kate Middleton to not be in any rush to take on the crown and throne.

However, the one thing everyone needs to understand is that it could take up to 30 years for them to become king and queen. Why so long? Because the Royal Family has some really good genes and they do live a long time. Currently, Queen Elizabeth is 93, and still going strong. Her husband, Prince Philip is 98, and their son, Prince Charles is still pretty young at the age of 71. The Queen's mother actually lived a long and healthy life until the age of 101.

Yes, it could be another 30 years before Prince William and Kate Middleton take the throne and they understand this very well. However, they are doing some things that they can do now to prepare for when that time comes but they don't expect the crowns to come any time soon for them.

In fact, Prince William said during an interview in 2016 that he didn't see becoming king a priority right now for him. Or for a very long time for that matter. In fact, he said, "I don’t lie awake at night waiting to be king."

He continued, "There’s the time now and the space to explore the means of doing another worthwhile job." What he means by this is that he likes the work he does currently by serving the public. The work he does now he does by his own capacity and not the different rules he will have to follow when he is crowned king.

The Royal Couple is also trying to give their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis a normal upbringing.

That is, as normal of childhood any parent with Royal Duties can provide for their beloved children. This means one that doesn't include too much of the Royal spotlight.

The longer they can delay when the time comes for them to be crowned, the better they have a chance of giving their children a normal childhood.

They want their children to live as normal a life as possible before they have to live under the rules they will have to follow when they do become king and queen.
