That's possible, and then we'd have King Harry. That wouldn't be so bad. He at least had some good mothering, so that increases his potential for being a worthwhile monarch.
I think there might be some reservations about Harry stepping up and taking Charles and William's place. To me it doesn't seem like such a big deal, but I'm sure some more conservative members of the government and Great Britain in general would have some issues or concerns with frequent reports of Harry's "party boy" reputation, his drinking and pot smoking.

Harry would certainly make for a "fun" and easy going king, but I don't know that he is as quite up for the task. And William, afterall, has been reared from his very birth to be the king and he is seen by many as the one who will "save the monarchy" - whatever that means and entails.

And I think that if - the biggest if possible! - Charles were forced to step aside as a result of the fallout from this scandal, William would not be discouraged to step aside, too. But quite the opposite, he would be encouraged to the sky and back to give up his present life and whatever personal freedoms he might have at the moment and take to the throne and live up to his duties and obligations of birth.

I don't have a problem with Charles being gay or bisexual - but I think what it does show, is that he continually shows very bad judgement.

.. he continually shows very bad judgement.
I think that's a bit harsh.

The ongoing difficulties illustrate to me, that
- The British RF imo is the one family that by tradition? is having the hardest time evolving into a modern monarchy.
- there is a plot ongoing to discredit Prince Charles.
- that about says it all.

Considering Harry's age, I don't think these reports carry much weight. Also suspect is that his so-called drinking and pot-smoking were exaggerated so as to "showcase" Prince Charles as a parent.

Besides ... Harry's going into the Army. Its reported that the Army is keen to have him.

That tells me, Harry has backbone and plenty of it. Tough too.

Honestly, I don't think this family is having a hard time living in the modern world. I think everyone else is just asking questions that they used to be too polite to ask in public.

Its all about rights and responsibilites. Yes, the people have a RIGHT to know about the Royal family, but they also used to have a responsibility to demand information only when it is vitally important. There is no pressing, legitimate, national interest in Charles' former sexual liasons(if any). He has done his duty and produced two heirs. As he is unlikely to father MORE heirs, his sexual history is irrelevant.

People have a right to know, but it doesn't make it any less tacky to ask...

Polfoto 07-11-2003 The Prince of Wales talks to his guide during his tour of the Nakhal Fort in the Arabic state of Oman, Friday November 7 2003, after he was dramatically named as the senior Royal allegedly involved in a compromising incident witnessed by a servant. Sir Michael Peat, Charles’s private secretary, told the media Thursday that he had spoken to the Prince who had told him the claim was untrue. The Prince is on an official visit to Oman after a nine day tour of India.
