Some of the behavior that we’ve seen from Prince Harry in the last couple of years has come across as odd to a lot of people. Recently, an alleged close friend of Harry’s told The Times his theory on why Harry started this whole beef with his family. Being the center of attention is something Harry wants to continue to be.
Competing For Attention
One of the theories floating around for a while now on Prince Harry is that he felt completely displaced by Kate Middleton when she married Prince William. Before their wedding, the two princes would be everywhere together. When she stepped on the scene, he was relegated to a third wheel. When they had kids, he even lost his place in the line of succession to the throne. This friend of Harry’s mentions,
“Harry has always been in such a rush to make an ‘impact,’ because he thinks he has a limited shelf life before the public want to hear more from George and his siblings,”
Turning Into His Uncle
The friend also talked about one of Harry’s biggest fears. That would be turning into Prince Andrew! Feeling that he will lose relevance as a royal, the alleged source added that, “He worries that after that, he’ll turn into his uncle.”
This is actually something that Harry had talked about in the past. Even in his days as a single man before Meghan Markle came on the scene.
Was Megxit Part Of A Bigger Plan?
Essentially what this particular source and others are saying is that the whole Megxit ordeal, the Oprah interview, and the upcoming memoir are part of a bigger plan by Prince Harry. All in an effort to remain relevant in the public eye. Even as his nephews grow older and become more popular. Yes, he’s jealous of 8-year-old Prince George. In an interview, Prince Harry once referenced this saying,
“There’s nothing worse than going through a period in your life where you’re making a massive difference and then suddenly … you drop off,”
Meanwhile, His Kids Are Still Being Accounted For In The Line of Succession
To this point in the story, even though Harry is literally making a living out of trashing his family, he still has not been axed from the line of succession to the throne. This means, if a family tragedy happened, the California-based prince could inherit the throne! This Monday, the royal.uk website officially updated the line of succession. To include, of course, baby Lilibet Diana. She currently sits 8th in line to the throne. Behind her grandfather Prince Charles, uncle William, and his 3 kids. Finally, her dad Prince Harry and brother Archie.
