In April, British royals Prince William, Prince Harry and Kate Middleton launched a 10-part video series called “O.K. to Say” to accompany a campaign called Heads Together, which aims to end the stigma around mental health. The films are intended to prove the power of simple conversations in changing the direction of an entire life.
Recently, Prince Harry shared some details about the lives of the British Royal Family in two interviews. The younger son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana is currently fifth in the line of succession to succeed Queen Elizabeth II.
On June 21, Wednesday, Prince Harry explained how the members of the new generation of the royal family are trying to modernize the throne in an interview with Newsweek. The monarchy exists for the greater good of the people, he said.
“Is there any one of the royal family who wants to be king or queen? I don’t think so,” Prince Harry told the magazine. “But we will carry out our duties at the right time.”
When Prince Harry was in his early 20s, he did not want to be in the position he was in. However, he eventually began listening to people and decided to use his role for good, he revealed.
On June 25, Sunday, Prince Charles talked more about what it was like to live a royal life in another interview with Daily Mail. Apparently, he once thought of giving up his royal status but his loyalty to his grandmother, the queen, made him decide to stay and work out a role for himself.
When Prince Harry was born on Sept. 15, 1984 at St. Mary’s Hospital in London, England, he was third in the line for the throne. He became fifth in line after the birth of his elder brother Prince William’s children Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
It is Prince Charles who is first in line for the throne while Prince William is second. Prince George and Princess Charlotte are third and fourth in line, respectively.
Middleton gave birth to Prince George on July 22, 2013 and to Princess Charlotte on May 2, 2015. The two children were both born at St. Mary’s Hospital.
