Prince Harry’s Shared

Prince Harry said that it was a pleasure to serve the army as he could escape his royal status. He added that it took him some time to reach terms with what being in the monarchy meant and sought counseling to help him figure out what he wanted.

“I wasn’t a prince I was just Harry, it was the best escape I ever had. I am determined to have a relatively normal life and if I am lucky enough to have children they can have one too. We don’t just want to be a bunch of celebrities but instead use our role for good. We want to make sure the monarchy lasts and are passionate about what it stands for.”

Harry is fifth in the queue to the throne behind William and Kate’s children. He said:

“The reason I am now fifth is that of my nephew and niece and I could never wish them away. They are the most amazing things ever.”

In a candid talk with Newsweek magazine, the fifth in line to the British throne says there was a time in his troubled 20s when he just wished he could live an ordinary life.”

“I felt I wanted out but then decided to stay in and work out a role,

He repeatedly told the journalist Angela Levin that there are times when he wishes he could be something other than Prince Harry.

An honest statement from Prince William’s younger brother. He has been opening up in interviews this year about the grief and anxiety he felt after the sudden death of his mother, Princess Diana, and his lost years in his 20s when, as he said in an April interview, he was “very close” to a breakdown before he sought to council four years ago.

Prince Harry was disillusioned being part of the Royal Family

Harry was shocked he was withdrawn from a journey to Afghanistan’s Helmand province after just ten weeks when his position was exposed by a magazine, leading to concerns over the Prince’s safety.

He said:

“I felt very resentful. Being in the Army was the best escape I’ve ever had. I felt as though I was really achieving something. I have a deep understanding of all sorts of people from different backgrounds and felt I was part of a team.”

After several attempts to come to terms with his status and considering abandoning his position in the Royal Family, the Prince claimed he eventually decided to stay in and work out a role for himself.

In recent years, Prince has worked endlessly to promote a range of charities to encourage injured servicemen, and women and tackle mental health issues among other worthy causes.

He said that he and his brother Prince William were incredibly intense with their charities and they have been chosen because they are on the path taught by their mother.

“We are not doing this for ourselves but for the greater good of the people, Is there any one of the Royal Family who wants to be king or queen? I don’t think so, but we will carry out our duties at the right time. We want to make sure the monarchy lasts and are passionate about what it stands for. But it can’t go on as it has done under the Queen. There will be changes and pressure to get them right. Things are moving so fast, especially because of social media, so we are involved in modernizing the monarchy.”
