When they were born, Prince Harry no longer cared about his place in the order of succession to the British throne.

In his memoir, Spare, the Duke of Sussex wrote that the Waleses' firstborn was "beautiful" when he was born in 2013. He even expressed his excitement about having his first nephew.

"As I know full well — within my family — if it's not [me and my brother], it's going to be someone else," he told The Telegraph. "And though William and I have talked about it once or twice, and he has made it very clear to me that his kids are not my responsibility, I still feel a responsibility knowing that out of those three children, at least one will end up like me, the 'spare.'"
