Is it possible that Prince William will ascend the British throne someday? Well, he is second in the line so the chances are pretty high. However, his father, Prince Charles, will put on the crown first.

What about Prince Harry? The ginger royal is only 6th, which means he might never be crowned. Nonetheless, it appears that Princess Diana believed that he is more fit for the role than his older brother.

Why is that?

Princess Diana never played favorites but she knew what her children’s best and worst qualities are. The royal biographer, Angela Levin, believes that Lady Di thought that her youngest son will be better suited to be king than her eldest.

Levin wrote in her biography, titled Harry: Conversations with the Prince:

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.

Moreover, Angela revealed that the late Princess even had a special nickname for the ginger royal. She called him “Good King Harry.”

Apparently, as a child, William told his mother that he has no desire to put on the crown. But Harry was eager to take his older brother’s place.

We don’t know what the two royals think about ruling the country now but we have to admit that it’s hard to imagine Harry being a king instead of William. What do you think?
