Despite retiring from the royal family, Prince Harry can rule Britain, and seize the throne as the sole king.
If this were to happen, however, the Duke of Sussex could ascend the throne in the event of a tragic event that could change the course of history.
As the royal expert, Constitution MacMarthen, explains, “the 1937 Act stipulates that the Regent shall be the next person to have obtained his majority.”
According to the 1953 act, if the Queen died before Prince Charles was 18, Prince Philip could become regent.
“Therefore, in the case of Prince William becoming King, and before Prince George’s majority was reached, he died, and no other provisions were passed by Parliament before that, as in 1953, then the current situation.” “As a result, Prince Harry, the front-runner who won the majority, will become a regent,” McMahon added.
This means that William’s tragic death could force Harry to wear the crown as regent until Prince George turns 18.
