Prince Harry spent the formative years of his life a few steps away from the throne. Then, he spent a good few years as a “wild child.” Now, as he’s been bumped down a peg on the line of succession by his brother’s children, he’s stepping back and focusing on charity work, and that’s just fine with him. In an interview with journalist Angela Levin, published in the Daily Mail, Harry opened up about his ups and downs in the royal family.

He said he didn’t mind being fifth in line for the throne because Prince George and Princess Charlotte are the people now ahead of him. "The reason I am now fifth is because of my nephew and niece and I could never wish them away,” he said. “They are the most amazing things ever."


Prince Harry also opened up about what he’d want for his future children. “I am determined to have a relatively normal life and if I am lucky enough to have children, they can have one too,” he said. “We don’t want to be just a bunch of celebrities but instead use our role for good.”

Previously, Harry expressed that he wanted George and Charlotte to share a specific part of his upbringing. “I would definitely encourage George, and Charlotte if she wants to, to have some sort of involvement in the Armed Forces, guaranteed. It’s done no harm, just good, for me, and I know it’s the same for William,” he told the Mirror. “As an uncle, you know, I would say enjoy the [royal] role, because at first, it’s just pressure, pressure, pressure. If you’re going to be doing it and you’re having an effect on so many people then, if you smile, they’re smiling--and what’s the point of doing such a unique job without enjoying it?"
