ROYAL BOMBSHELL: How Princess Diana wanted Prince Harry to be KING instead of William
PRINCESS Diana wanted her youngest son Prince Harry to be king instead of Prince William, an explosive new royal book has claimed. Prince Harry may have been pushed down to sixth in line to the throne by William’s three children, but his “general gusto” for life made his late mother believe he should one day take the throne.
Princess Diana, who died in a tragic car crash in 1997, believed Harry would find his duty to serve the nation easier than William and even lovingly called him ‘Good King Harry’.
Writing for new biography ‘Harry Conversations with the Prince’, journalist Angela Levin said: “Harry’s seeming ability to cope, his ease with people and general gusto led Diana to believe that he would handle being king more easily than William.
“She even called him Good King Harry.
“Diana felt less confident in William.
“‘William doesn’t want to be king and I worry about that. He doesn’t want his every move watched.’
“In fact both boys were damaged but handled the break-ups in different ways.”
Father-of-three Prince William has spoken of his reluctance to be King in the past.
The Duke of Cambridge has no desire to take the reins early, despite a shock survey revealing almost half of Britons want the 36-year-old to become the next monarch after Queen Elizabeth II rather than his father, Charles.
However, Prince William says he does not want to “climb the ladder of kingship” before his time.

Following the birth of royal baby Prince Louis, Prince Harry is now sixth in line to the throne, one person away from being free to marry without the Queen’s permission.
But the 33-year-old, who will marry Meghan Markle in the Royal Wedding in a matter of weeks, revealed he had considered life as the King of the country.
Speaking to Ms Levin, he said: “People would be amazed by the ordinary life William and I live.
“I do my own shopping. Sometimes when I come away from the meat counter in my local supermarket I worry someone will snap me with their phone.
“But I am determined to have a relatively normal life and if I am lucky enough to have children they can have one too.
“Even if I was king I would do my own shopping.”
Ms Levin added: “This sounded rather bizarre as Princes Willian, George and Charlotte have pushed him well down the line of succession.”
