Will Prince Harry Become King After the Kate Middleton Rumors?

The recent rumors about Kate Middleton often lead to one question: Will Prince Harry become king if these conspiracies about Kate Middleton are true?

In recent times, there has been a flurry of rumors surrounding the British Royal Family. One of the most talked-about topics is the health and public absence of Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. There are even those who believe the Dutchess died after an abdomnial surgery. This has led to speculation and questions about the line of succession to the British throne.

Will Prince Harry Become King of the United Kingdom?

The short answer is, it’s highly unlikely. The line of succession to the British throne is not influenced by personal circumstances. It is determined by birth order and regulated by Parliamentary statute. Prince Harry is the third child of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana.

He is currently sixth in line to the throne, following his older brother Prince William, and William’s three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. Regardless of the veracity of the rumors about Kate Middleton, which appear to be unfounded, Prince Harry’s position in the line of succession would remain unaffected.

Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, received this title from the Queen on his wedding day. Even though he has withdrawn from his royal responsibilities and no longer uses the prefix “His Royal Highness,” his status as a prince by birth and his possession of the dukedom remain unchanged.

The loss of the His Royal Highness prefix does not affect Prince Harry’s place in the line of succession. He remains eligible to inherit the throne one day. However, it would require very extraordinary circumstances for him to become king, given his current position in the line of succession.

So, while Prince Harry remains a prince and a duke, it is highly unlikely that he will become king. The line of succession is a matter of law and tradition, and it cannot be changed by personal circumstances, public opinion, or rumors.
