Prince and Princess of Wales have ‘worked out’ how to navigate Charlotte’s position as ‘spare’

According to a royal expert, the Prince and Princess of Wales have “it all worked out” when it comes to handling Charlotte’s role as “spare.”

In an interview with The Telegraph earlier this month, Prince Harry expressed worries to his brother Prince William about the future of the other royal “spares,” but William “made it very clear that the children are not his responsibility.”

However, Princess Charlotte and her future role in “The Firm” are “all worked out,” according to Katie Nicholl of Vanity Fair, who also believes Prince William and Catherine Middleton.

“George, Charlotte, and Louis are enjoying a childhood Harry and William didn’t get to experience,” she said on the Dynasty podcast. “I think that is why William and Kate are channeling everything they can into raising their children with an understanding of who they are as royals but as ordinary children too.”

Nobody wants the next generation to endure the same suffering that Harry has, she said, adding, “It’s not a pretty picture.”

‘I think when you look to the Waleses and how they are raising their children, away from the spotlight, in pretty ordinary schools, in a regular cottage on the grounds of Windsor, having bucket and spade holidays and teaching them to sail on the broads in Norfolk,’ the royal expert said, adding that the brothers did not have the same kind of childhood.

“It does raise the issue of Princess Charlotte being the next “spare”.”

“I have no doubt that Kate and William have figured it all out.”

“If they choose to read ‘Spare’, I believe there will be some extremely uncomfortable moments for them.”

The Duke of Sussex openly discussed his concerns for Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis earlier this month in an interview. He added that he hoped his efforts to draw attention to his own suffering would benefit future generations.

“Although William and I have discussed it a few times and he has made it very clear that his children are not my responsibility, I still feel a sense of obligation.”

“At least one of those three kids—the ‘spare’—will grow up to be like me.” And that hurts and makes me anxious.

Prince George, William’s first child, is second in line to the throne after his father, followed by Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, George’s younger siblings.

The news is related to the recent revelation that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Duke of York are “unlikely” to accompany the King and Queen Consort on the balcony during the Coronation.

The newly crowned King and Queen will appear at Buckingham Palace after the ceremony in May, according to a statement made by the palace last night.

The lineup of Royals joining them will only include family members who are currently employed, similar to the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebration the previous year. Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and Prince Andrew will be excluded because they are no longer involved in official duties.



Following allegations of sexual abuse, Prince Andrew retired from his official position in November 2019. He has consistently refuted the charges.

Three years ago, when Harry and Meghan left Britain to begin a new life in California, they left their roles behind.

Harry published a tell-all book earlier this month detailing both past and present grudges against his family. Even if he were invited, he declined to say whether he would go to the Coronation in a television interview to promote his memoir.
