I think it is a good thing that Prince William is doing his own thing for now. He will have time later on for royal duties. He is young and he still has his father ahead of him. Let's give him time!

How come we are seeing more of Harry lately than William? Shouldn't it be the other way around seeing as William will be King one day?

William is back at school. As agreed, the press will keep its distance. We should begin seeing more of William during the Christmas holidays. It will be open season on him when in graduates in June 2005.

I've been a "fan" of William and Harry's for years, but I'm to the point now where I thin William needs to quit finding outs and start picking up some of the slack. It's my opinion that William will probably join the military, and maybe it is because he feels he can do some good, but I also think its going to be another sad attempt at putting off his duties and the press.

I think the two boys have been too sheltered. I agree that Charles has been a great father and support to the boys, but they were born into a public role and while they didn't chose the role, life is what it is, and instead of being trained to avoid the glare of the limelight, they should be being trained as to how to get on well and ignore the press. It seems to me, (and I know it's been said in Royal interviews), that William and Harry know how to manipulate their father by using the memory of thier mother and what happened to her (they claim by fault of the Paparazzi), in my opinion, they need to just suck it up, quit being spoiled brats and get on with life. If they really wanted a private life there are other options they can use.

History repeating itself

I'm pretty sure that there was a thread that mentioned something about 2nd sons succeeding older brothers due to unforeseen circumstances. Or maybe it was in a different board. Since I cannot find it here, I will mention what I've observed so far.

1. Prince William is the first son of the Prince of Wales. Prince Harry is the second son.

2. Their grandfather (second son of George V, George VI) unexpectedly became king when his older brother (the first born Edward VIII) abdicated. [George V's first name was Albert - one of the names of Prince Harry's. However, I guess you can counter this claim and say that one of Edward VIII's names is Albert]

3. Similarly, their great-grandfather (second son of Edward VII, George V) became king when the first born son, the Duke of Clarence Albert Victor, died before his father died.

4. Also, if we travel a bit further back in time, the infamous (and second son of Henry VII) Henry VIII succeeded his older brother, Prince Arthur before the latter got the chance to become king himself. [One of William's middle names is Arthur and of course, Harry is a nickname for Henry]


While it may seem a little far fetched, I could not help but notice the similarities. I'm not encouraging people to look to the past to tell the future - it's all speculation. But it would be strange if history did repeat itself.

Wow, those are some pretty odd coincidences, but I'm not sure if they are much more than that. (I'm sorry, I don't mean any offense by that in any way, coicidence or not? Who knows) It would be very odd if history did repeat itself...but you never know what will happen in the world.

I forgot to mention something else.

Edward VIII was named after Albert Victor - first born sons who unexpectedly passed the crown to their next brothers.

One thing that surely will repeat itself in my opinion, is that just like QVictoria had a long reign and her son who inherited the throne relatively late in life, and didn't reign for too many years, so will Queen Elizabeth live to a ripe old age and Charles will become king as an OAP,and not reign for too many years!

(OAP?) That would be an interesting parallel with Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth's lives. It wouldn't surprise me if that did happen. Good point, auntie.

Queens Victoria and Elizabeth did/do have long reigns but I think Charles may have the throne longer than Edward VII. Another similarity is Camilla and her ancestor, Alice Keppel.

Remember though that Charles has taken far better care of himself health-wise than Edward VII who ate, drank and smoked to excess from an early age.

I think that Charles will reign for longer than Edward and will probably live into his 80s as well as both his parents did and both his grandmothers as well. His grandfathers died at younger ages but to a certain extent their earlier deaths were due to their lifestyle.

On a slightly less serious note..... here is a rather frivolous "history repeats itself" sort of manip I put together about Charles and Harry tucking their polo shirts in. The original source of these pics are Rex Features and The Sun (UK) Online Newspaper. The hosting source is my own yahoo/geocities account.

I'm sure every polo player could have been photographed in that pose.

Will History repeat??

Will Andrew be the first Duke of York since the mid 1400s to have legitimate issue and not to have the title merge with the crown.
Since Edward IV became king no Duke of York has passed the title to their son. They have either become king themselves thus merging the title with the crown or have had no legitimate issue.

Richard - son of Edward IV - one of the princes in the tower

Henry VIII - merged with crown

Charles I - merged with crown

James II - merged with crown

George I - younger son - died without legitimate issue

George II - eldest son's second son - died without legitimate issue

Frederick - George III's second son - died without legitimate issue

George V - merged with crown

George VI - merged with crown.

That is scary if you think about coincidences and history repeating itself.

They say the Duke of York title is cursed.
