Ok mayby someone in here knows this,
Hypothetically, say PC suffers from a huge stroke, and is deemed medically incapable of taking over, then william has a freak accident and dies during a hunt or whatever, who takes over regency for little George should HM keel over?
Kate, the palace or Harry? eating cookies

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..!

Yup, found it: regency to Harry, legal guardianship to Kate.
Makes sence if you think about it, yet because the sovereign is truly above the law I wasn't sure, courts rule in name of king/queen after al so to appoint a guardian by courtorder for a minor king is impossible.
Knock on wood that it never get this far! nervous

In the UK the Regency Act is very clear:

next adult in the line of succession takes over as Regent regardless of where they are in the line of succession so for an underage George it would be Harry.

Kate would keep custody and raise him. Whether Harry was allowed any contact to train the King would be up to the relationship between the surviving parent and the regent.
