Prince William is an heir-in-waiting that’s under pressure like no other future king in recent history, a royal expert has claimed. The royals have had a tumultuous year after being criticised by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, where they also claimed one member of the family had asked how dark their son Archie’s skin would be before he was born.
The family has also had to say goodbye to Prince Philip, who died aged 99 in April, and support the Queen after losing her beloved husband.Now, royal historian Robert Lacey, author of the book Battle of Brothers, says William is stepping up to help lead the family.
“It’s a crucial inflection point — this heir-in-waiting is under pressure like none before in recent history.”The British throne has survived beheading, exile and enough scandal to stock entire libraries. Now a new leader — William, not Charles — is paving the way forward.”
Since returning to royal duties since the summer break, William has been busy visiting the likes of fire stations and football clubs.On Tuesday night, he joined his wife the Duchess of Cambridge as well as Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall at the premiere of the new James Bond film No Time To Die.
