Prince William already preparing to be King: ‘Duke always thinking strategically’


PRINCE William appears to already be preparing to one day become King as the Duke of Cambridge “thinks strategically” about his every move, a commentator claimed.

William appears to have a “strategic” approach on how to handle becoming King, according to BBC presenter Andrew Marr. Mr Marr has told the BBC documentary The Princes and the Press that the Duke of Cambridge has set out to build a relationship with the media that works, adding that the Duke is “constantly thinking…in a strategic way”.

Mr Marr told the documentary: “William knows he has to deal with the media day in day out for the rest of his life.

“And therefore he has to have a relationship with the media that works.

“He’s constantly thinking I think in a strategic way, about how to handle that how to deal with that.”

A former press secretary to the Queen, Charles Anson also told the documentary’s producers: “I think Prince William has come to terms with the idea that he is going to be king one day, and that the media coverage of his progress to becoming king is going to be an important part of the way he is perceived in the world.”

The BBC approached Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Kensington Palace for comment.

Stephen Pound told GB News on Monday: “That is actually wrong and one thing the Republicans in this country would actually like to see would be Prince Charles acceding to the throne.

“The problem is Royal Family is in a stage at the moment. I don’t know if it ever stood so low in public opinion.

“The time is not for continuity Windsor.

“It’s time for a reboot, it’s time to start again.

“Unfortunately, the reputation of the Monarchy will fall even lower.

“I should declare an interest that I am the same age as Prince Charles and I retired two years ago next week because frankly, I thought I had enough.”

He added: “And also Prince Charles also started to drop off that year.

“It’s all about personality, It’s all about individualism, it’s all about the perception of the Royal Family as being relevant and this is no longer a time this is as usual because frankly, this is, as usual, gonna bankrupt the Royal Family.”
