 Prince William Keeps Harry Out of Succession Decisions, Royal Author Reports


Prince William is determined to keep Prince Harry at arm’s length when it comes to his plans for succession. With King Charles grappling with cancer, the Prince of Wales is being pulled into crucial discussions about the future, and it seems he prefers to navigate these waters without Harry’s input.

The underlying tension between the brothers, once an unbreakable duo, has become more pronounced in the face of the family’s current challenges. William’s desire to distance himself from Harry in matters of succession points to a deeper rift that may have been exacerbated by the recent revelations about the King’s health.

Royal author Tom Quinn said: “As a nonworking royal Harry is also no longer a counselor of state and he is not being kept in the loop because there is zero chance he will be asked to help out. William is adamant that he does not want Harry involved in any aspect of succession discussions or in planning for counselors of state to help out if and when it becomes necessary. And as the next in line what William wants William gets.”

He added: “Charles is also aware that, as future king, William is at the heart of the succession planning that is taking place right now – officials had assumed Charles would remain healthy at least into his mid-eighties before succession planning would need to begin but it has.

Speculation is rife that the seriousness of King Charles’ condition may have been underestimated, prompting a more urgent approach to succession planning. This urgency underscores the delicate balance of responsibilities and familial dynamics within the royal family, especially during such a vulnerable time.

As William steps more firmly into his role in preparation for the future, his stance on Harry’s involvement—or lack thereof—reveals much about the current state of their relationship and the complexities of royal duty. The path forward for the monarchy, it appears, is being charted with careful consideration of who is involved in shaping its direction.
