Prince Harry jokes about being King
Britain’s Prince Harry has joked people “will be glad to know” that he is unlikely to ever be King.
The 31-year-old royal was filming a children’s TV show at Lambs Lane Primary School in Berkshire last week when he was asked by a nine-year-old student named Tristan “Are you ever going to be King?”
Harry laughed and quipped: “That’s the question everybody wanted, let’s be honest! You’ll be glad to know, probably not!”
And when Tristan looked disappointed, Harry commiserated with him by saying: “Oh, look at the disappointment! I love that! I’m going to give you a high-five.”
Tristan later told PEOPLE: “I just want Prince Harry to do what he wants, what he really, really wants. I think it would be a fun experience for him to be King. I would love to see him be King.”
Harry’s father Prince Charles is first-in-line to the throne while his older brother Prince William and nephew Prince George are also future Kings of England.
Meanwhile, Harry is currently busy preparing for the Invictus Games, the Paralympic-style event for wounded soldiers, which will take place in Orlando, Florida, in May.
