While nobody in the Royal Family “wants to be King or Queen,” Prince Harry works hard “for the greater good of the people”

It's actually a tough act to become the King and surely, anyone who succeeds the Queen someone will have big shoes to fill! In fact, even Prince Harry agreed that no one in the Royal Family wants to become king or queen. However, that does not deter Prince Harry from doing best for the benefit of the many.

In an exclusive interview with Newsweek, while Prince Harry was quoted as saying no one in the Royal Family “wants to be king or queen,” he nevertheless emphasized that that he and his brother Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge are all working together to modernize the British monarchy.

Describing how he tries hard to maintain normality by doing his own supermarket shopping, he admitted making the Royal family accessible is a “tricky balancing act”, saying: “We don’t want to dilute the magic. The British public and the whole world need institutions like it.”
The amount of charity work he, William and Kate will do—which has been a huge part of the queen’s public persona—will be more focused.

As of 2016, Queen Elizabeth II has maintained an active calendar of activities, supporting over 600 charities. The British Royal Family all in all supports 3,000 charities and other philanthropic causes. However, it is expected that this number will dwindle by the time William becomes king. However, a source close to Prince Harry explained that is not due to laziness. Instead, the royals only wanted to focus more on causes that they have thorough understanding.

“They want instead to concentrate on specific charities that they research thoroughly first and then get involved in on a regular basis. The one thing they don't want is to be seen as a group of celebrities.” Harry explained.

“We use our time wisely,” he says. “We don't want to turn up, shake hands but not get involved.”

King Edward VIII’s Financial Settlement: How Much Money Did He Get After The Abdication?

King Edward VIII leaped into financial uncertainty the moment he signed the Instrument of Abdication on December 10, 1936. That same day, Edward, now known as Duke of Windsor, entered into an agreement with his younger brother and successor, King George VI, that secured him £25,000 annually for the rest of his life. However, the King later renounced this agreement and instead offered him a smaller amount which would cease upon the King's death.

The Private Residences of the British Royals

Let’s check out the privately-owned or leased residences of the members of the British Royal Family. The list does not include the state-owned residences, like Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle, as well as those owned by the duchies of Cornwall and Lancaster.  This list, however, includes properties leased by members of the Royal Family for the purpose of having their own private residence.
Balmoral Castle

Balmoral Castle is the private residence of Queen Elizabeth II in Royal Deeside in Scotland. Purchased by Prince Albert in 1852, the property reminded him of his homeland, Thuringia, Germany. Prince Albert and Queen Victoria originally leased the property until the deal was sealed to purchase the estate for £32,000.
