Prince Harry and Prince William's relationship has remained a hot topic until today. The two brothers have been estranged, leading to questions about what will happen to the Duke of Sussex when the Prince of Wales becomes the King?

In a discussion on Quora, one fan asked what would be Prince Harry's future when the time came that Prince William had to take the throne. Though several have answered the question, a lot have favored the heir to the throne, showing hate for Meghan Markle's husband.

The Line of Succession

The Duke of Cornwall is now the heir to the throne after his father, Charles, became the King after the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022. This also puts Prince Harry in the fifth line of succession, following his eldest brother's kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

Frank Martin explained that an Act of Parliament governs the line of succession, and no royal or even a monarch can change it.

Hence, Prince Harry will remain a part of it, following Prince William and his three kids, and the Parliament may have no reason to remove the former or his children from the line.

Archie and Lilibet are the sixth and seventh in the line of succession, respectively.

Prince Harry to Become the King's Brother

LaVette simply explained that Prince Harry would be the King's brother if Kate Middleton's husband became the monarch.

"If you're expecting some grand things to happen, don't, nothing changes except he will be the brother of a King, that's it, and that's all," the user reiterated.

However, user darlin1111 believed the 38-year-old prince would be "much less important" than he is now when that time comes.

Nothing Will Change

For Teodora Greywoolf, nothing will change for Prince Harry when Prince William takes the throne.

Though she believes the royal family is already fed up with the duke's "childish and spoiled behavior," the royals will still respect the traditional family values. They can't cut ties with him due to its impact on their image.

If not, they have probably done so—without thinking twice.

"I don't think their approach is based on what they feel. Their approach is based on doing what reflects the standards they uphold," she continued. "In conclusion, probably nothing would happen."

Prince William may still wish the best for his younger brother, just like their father.
