Charlotte and Louis unlikely to follow in Harry’s footsteps due to childhood upbringing


PRINCESS Charlotte and Prince Louis are unlikely to follow in their uncle Prince Harry’s footsteps and leave the Royal Family when they are older as their upbringing will be different, a royal expert claims

Speaking to, Ms Koenig was asked if Prince Harry’s departure set a precedent for Louis and Charlotte.

The royal expert explained that the “branches” of the Royal Family were being lost by “attrition” and there may be a greater desire to keep the royal children onside.

However, she explained there were fears that the role of the institution may decrease over the next few years due to countries wishing to become republics.

She said: “Let’s look at the other Royal Families who don’t do the same amount of kind of work and charities and engagements that the British royals have done.

“And we also remember that the Queen is queen of 16 countries, not just one.

“Whether that will change in the next reign is [up for debate], like Jamaica is talking about it, Barbados wants to go become a republic.

“But it is going to be difficult in a way, unless they totally fully refocus on how they do engagements.

“I also think that, thanks to Brexit, you might only not lose Northern Ireland, you might lose Scotland, you could become a really small country.”

Ms Koenig added that Prince Louis and Charlotte would be raised in a more traditional way and either scenario for the children – a limited or more active role in the Royal Family – could mean by learning from what happened with Prince Harry that his situation could be avoided.

Prince Harry left the Royal Family at the beginning of 2020 and confirmed he would not return in February of this year.

The news coincided with his interview with Oprah Winfrey where he revealed what his life was like in the Royal Family.

The prince said he felt “trapped” as a royal and that Prince Charles and William felt the same.

Meghan Markle also revealed she struggled with her mental health and was not given support despite asking the royal institution for it.

She also alleged an unnamed member of the Royal Family had concerns over how dark baby Archie’s skin would be before he was born.

Buckingham Palace released a brief statement addressing the racism claims stating it would be investigating it but “recollections may vary”.

It has also been revealed the Meghan Markle’s claim of a private wedding three days before the main ceremony was false after marriage certificates revealed her mistake.
