Prince Harry has stepped down from his royal duties last year. Queen Elizabeth II has dedicated her life to the monarchy and she wants to ensure its future.
So, Her Majesty allegedly wanted father and son, Prince William and Prince George, to be safe so that the throne wouldn't fall into the hands of the Duke of Sussex.
Prince Harry Is Next To The Throne After Prince William And His Family
Prince William will succeed the throne after his dad, Prince Charles. Before he married Kate Middleton and welcomed his three children — Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3— Prince Harry was third in line to the throne. However, his nephews and niece put him farther down the line of succession.
However, if something happens to Prince William and his whole family, Prince Harry will inherit the throne after the Prince of Wales.
According to Daniela Elser, in an op-ed for NZ Herald, the Queen made a move to keep the throne from the Duke of Sussex. She stressed that even if Prince William's younger brother is a "monarchial irrelevance" at present, "a tragedy of some sort could see the 36-year-old end up on the throne."
She also pointed out that if something happened to the Duke of Cambridge, Prince Harry could end up ruling and be made regent if Prince Charles passed away before Prince George turned 18 years old when he could assume the throne in his own right.
Elser felt that the Queen doesn't want the throne to end in the hands of Prince Harry.
"Given Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex's loud and pique-fuelled bombardment of the palace this year, it would be understandable if even the remotest possibility of the monarchy ending up in their hands was something keeping his Gan Gan awake at night," Elser added.
Queen Forbids Prince Harry's Brother Prince William From Flying Helicopters With Family
Prince William, the second-in-line to the throne, is a professional pilot. He sometimes pilot a helicopter as his and Kate Middleton's family travel from London to Norfolk.
However, the Queen had allegedly asked the Duke of Cambridge to stop doing it. Her Majesty was "terrified" that something bad would happen because it would affect the line of succession.
"Her Majesty has told close friends and courtiers that she would like William to stop flying himself, particularly in bad weather, as helicopters are not the safest form of transport," an unnamed source told The Sun. "It keeps the Queen awake at night and she is understandably very worried."
The insider added that the Queen knows Prince William is a "capable pilot." However, she doesn't think it's worth the risk for all five of them to be flying in the same plane because bad weather and accident can strike at any time and if it happens it will "spark a constitutional crisis."
"The Queen is delighted in the way William and Kate have risen to the challenge in recent years and knows the monarchy is safe in their hands," the source added. "She thinks the future is bright with them at the helm after Charles but if something happened to him and the family it doesn’t bear thinking about."
