3. Would Andrew become King or be banned
4. Could Beatrice be moved up the line very quickly
As was said above, Harry could abdicate for himself but not for Archie. If Harry REALLY doesn't want his family on the throne, he and Archie (and future children) could always become Roman Catholic which would automatically bar them. I would hope, though, that any religious conversions would be for faith, and not expediency...
