I disagree. I think this shows he is a complete idiot and is not understanding the mood. So he gets all benefits and it is a sacrifice to bw king? Seriously? Then why does he not renounce his rights and go to live in Africa? Let's see how relevant he is then.

Also I do no think he is right. Ask Charles or Andrew...

I am certain that Charles can't wait to be king. Very strange he did not mention his father at all.

think is Great interview ...  wopedo for the Republicans.


Quote
Prince Harry, 32, claimed that nobody in his family 'wants to be king or queen'
tehe i believe that york`s family would like

We are not doing this for ourselves but for the greater good of the people.

Quote
He makes clear that, in partnership with William and his wife Kate, the young royals are also keen to modernise the monarchy – although there is, intriguingly, no mention of their father, Charles
It seems .... When the queen 'passes', there will be two monarchies : Clarence vs Kensington

Quote
'Even if I was king, I would do my own shopping.'
Indirect to Charles?  huh


Quote
In recent weeks Harry has also spoken at length about the negative aspects of his mother' death and how he underwent years of private anguish and anger before finally seeking professional help in his late 20s.

Now he insists he can use the passions that often dragged in him into trouble – such as his naked antics in a Las Vegas hotel room – for good.'I believe a leopard can change its spots,' he says.
Good for him and like this is part .  thumbsup

Has anyone here read the original Newsweek interview given by Harry? Or only the bits and pieces cherry picked and skewed by the DM in order to sensationalise as much as they can?

It is a very flattering account but still both Will and him seem entitled.

He is normal because he goes shopping...ok. Then it is fun that they mentiom him going to Will's but also that they not see each other much.

It was a Charles idea and fully pushed/supported by the old greek (Philip). The personal relations between Charles and his sons are really bad. I suppose the therapist mother of Meghan has same type of friendship with Harry as William has with Carole.

People are starting to really notice that neither he nor Willie mention their father or Camilla at all in interviews, including the one William gave to GQ a few weeks ago. Charles's latest biographer was as discreet as heck but even she hinted that Charles doesn't see much of his grandchildren.

Someone on another forum said the Cambridges didn't spend much time at Ascot with Charles and Camilla but quite a bit with Carole and Mike. Now we've got Harry not speaking about C and C in this wide ranging interview. I think Harry is closer to Charles than William is but that's not saying much. When these two documentaries to mark the 20th anniversary of Diana's death come out and neither of them say anything about Dad then we will know something is up, IMO.

The world doesn't need "the magic of the royal family" because there's nothing magic about this endless dog and pony show. These ceremonial do-nothing leeches live in unearned luxury from womb-to-tomb at outrageous taxpayers' expense. What a garbage story.

Of all the monarchies still in existence, this lot is the most unprofessional, un-regal, and most ungrateful of them all. In a way though, it makes me happy because interviews like this lend support towards the Republican movement.  Why should people pay to keep these blathering numpties  suckling on the teat of privilege and luxury, especially if "no one wants it"?
If William and Harry are out for revenge for Mummy, they're doing a bang-up job, but these idiots don't realize they are screwing themselves over in the process.
This is going to be a crash and burn on an epic scale.  I can't wait.  easter-bunny

This disparaging of Charles is getting absurd.   And the constant Diana card playing is equally ridiculous.  These two will finish off the monarchy.  They consistently fail to see that they do not define the monarchy the British people do.  What mandate for "modernization" do they have?

Harry should be careful about how he says things.  Of course no one should desire to be King - it means the death of the monarch and no one should desire power.  But they should desire to serve. 

Harry and Will need to stop doing interviews for awhile.

^ In the fuller Newsweek interview online, but not the complete print version, and not the cherry picking tabloid one, Harry does speak about the desire to serve and also about enjoying the charity work he does.

^Of course; why should Harry or William set aside childish resentments and work at a charity that has helped thousands over the generations since it was created? Neither wish to grow up, I can see that much.

Unfortunately, this describes Harry's behavior far more than I would wish.

Thoroughly modern Prince Harry makes ripples in the royal pond
We are now getting used to Prince Harry saying and doing things we don't expect from a Royal.

And I'm not referring to his more wild days in Las Vegas with too few clothes on.

His interviews in recent weeks have revealed a lot about the Prince.

They have given us an insight into things we didn't know before, like his admission he went into a very bad place after his mothers death.

He also made the revelation that he sought psychiatric help when he struggled to properly deal with his grief.
http://www.itv.com/news/2017-06-22/thoroughly-modern-prince-harry-makes-ripples-in-the-royal-pond/


Quote
They are words which have rather left Kensington Palace on the defensive.

This thoroughly modern Royal suddenly appears to be at odds with the traditions of the royal household in which he grew up.

Kensington Palace denies Prince Harry is criticising other members of his family, but suggests they are simply his reflections on how attitudes to grief have changed in 20 years.

The other interesting line from Prince Harry's chat with Newsweek is his admission that no-one in the family wants to be King or Queen.

Which is another interesting admission.


Quote
Harry is fifth in line to the throne and his father and brother will both inherit the crown at some point in their lives.

His exact words are these: "Is there any one of the Royal Family who wants to be king or queen? I don't think so".

His aides suggest he is simply reflecting reality: he is highly unlikely to ever be the Head of State and that no Royal Family member is motivated by position - only service.

Prince Harry's words have caused a few ripples in the royal pond.

But that's what makes him, right now, the most interesting member of the Royal Family.

NEVER *despise* correction,for those who correct you ,truly LOVE you .They are willing to displease you and possibly lose your friendship ,rather than see you destroyed. Those who *despise* you ,on the other hand ,will allow you to FAIL...because what do they care ?

Every praise is not good and every criticism is not evil..!
