 Prince William’s ‘final’ decision about Prince Harry’s fate in royal family


In the midst of a challenging health crisis within the Royal family, Prince William appears to be firmly addressing the speculation surrounding Prince Harry’s potential reintegration into royal duties. Paul Burrell, who previously served as a butler to Princess Diana, recently shared insights into the dynamics at play, especially concerning the relationship between the Prince of Wales and his younger brother, the Duke of Sussex.

Speaking with representatives from Slingo, Burrell emphasized that Prince William has taken a definitive stance on the matter, suggesting a clear boundary or “line in the sand” has been set in terms of Prince Harry’s involvement with the royal family’s public engagements. This comes at a time when both King Charles and Kate Middleton are understandably reducing their public appearances as they focus on their health, following their cancer diagnoses.

Burrell said, according to the Daily Express: “There is no place for Harry in the royal fold. He has made his bed and now he has to lie in it. Too much has been said. The drawbridge is up and there is no way back for Harry.” “It sends the wrong message and William does not want any confusion going forward. William has drawn a line in the sand and has had enough so Harry will forever be the outcast Prince of his own making.”

The former palace staff continued: “In his own mind and his world, I think he thought it was a possibility, now the family is in crisis, that he could step in, put on a uniform, and do a few jobs for William and Charles, but it is not possible in the Royal Family’s eyes, or the public’s eyes.”

“There is no way back. Harry thought he could have one foot in the camp and one foot out, but the late Queen made it quite clear to him that that was not fair and that it would not work and would never be the case. His job as a member of the Royal Family is over,” added Paul. 

The idea of Prince Harry stepping in to assist with royal responsibilities has been a topic of considerable discussion, given the recent and significant challenges faced by the Royal family. The Duke of Sussex’s potential return to the fold could offer much-needed support during this period of adjustment and recovery. However, Burrell’s comments imply that Prince William may have reservations or conditions regarding the extent of this reintegration.

The Royal family is currently navigating through a delicate phase, balancing public duties with personal health concerns. King Charles’s and Kate Middleton’s decisions to temporarily retreat from some of their public responsibilities underscore the severity of their health situations and the need for a reevaluation of the family’s approach to royal engagements.

Amidst these developments, the discourse around Prince Harry’s role within the Royal family remains a subject of intrigue and speculation. His relationship with the rest of the family, particularly with Prince William, has been closely scrutinized in recent years, following his departure from full-time royal life. Burrell’s remarks hint at ongoing negotiations and considerations behind the scenes, as the Royal family contemplates the best path forward in these unprecedented times.

As the Royal family and their advisors chart the course for the coming months, the potential for Prince Harry’s contribution to royal duties continues to be a point of interest for both the public and royal commentators. The evolving situation requires a delicate balance of personal sensitivity, public expectation, and the practical realities of fulfilling the monarchy’s roles and responsibilities amidst personal challenges.
