British Royal Family News suggests seeing how Prince Charles has waited his entire life to take the throne, his son Prince William is apparently in no rush to be the next King of England himself. Even though the Duke of Cambridge is the second in line to the British throne, he likes the way things are in his life and is in no rush to have it changed anytime soon. Here’s what you need to know.
The editor-in-chief to True Royal TV, Nick Bullen, says that while both Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton have certainly stepped it up lately in their workload, they aren’t looking to become the next leaders of the monarchy anytime soon.
British Royal Family News: Prince William Is In No Rush To Be King
Bullen told Fox News in a new interview, “We were being told that William was very much stepping up in his role as a more senior member of the royal family in many ways, in terms of his public profile and what he was doing. The word that was used was ‘his monarchy manifesto,’ which I quite like. It’s… an idea of what sort of king he’s going to be.” And while there are a lot of people who would love to see Prince William as the next King instead of his father Prince Charles, Bullen says there is no way that is going to happen.
“You can say it as much as you like, but it’s never going to happen,” he chuckled. “When the queen very sadly dies, Prince Charles will be the king. There is no discussion. That’s what the queen wants. That’s what the Prince of Wales wants. And I know that’s what William wants. And you know, William is in no rush to be the king.”
“Here’s the weird thing that you have with the royals, and I’ve spoken to the Prince of Wales about this — to get the top job, you’re essentially wishing your parent or grandparent to be dead,” Bullen continued. “You know it’s coming, you know this job will come eventually, but you’re in no rush to get that job. For Charles to be king, his mother will have to die. So for William to be king, his father would have to die. Nobody wants that. It’ll happen in due course and William is in no rush for it. So it’s the queen, the Prince of Wales and then William — that’s the order.”
