PRINCE HARRY SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING OFFER TO BECOME KING OF CANADA
July 1 2011
Ottawa, Canada – The history of royalty throughout the world is messy, to say the least. Filled with all kinds of drama, ranging from mundane jealously to patricide and incest, the story of royal families meets and even exceeds even the wildest of
imaginative jaunts. Much of that has demurred in recent years alongside the decreasing power and value of royalty throughout the world, but some traditions still die hard even in the most prominent and sophisticated of modern monarchies.
Jealously is, after all, one of the most powerful of human traits and when it comes into contact with high levels of power and respect can certainly mutate into something perverse and destructive. Many expected, given the way they lived their lives publicly, that such issues didn’t exist between the two royal princes of the Commonwealth, princes William and Harry, but now new insight into the Royal palace has confirmed that a split between the two men seen as the future of monarchy be forming and only getting wider as time goes on. While precise details are difficult to come by, it appears that the younger prince is starting to feel restless with his position as a second banana and may be looking for a way to create his own position in the world, far outside his brother’s shadow. Specifically, it appears that Harry may be willing to take on the role of King of Canada, a position which is currently being developed.
“Harry does love his brother but it has started to become clear recently that he is always going to be second place and that isn’t something he is totally comfortable with anymore. It was the wedding that really drove it home. He realized that when he
gets married no one is going to care, never mind having a couple billion people watch on TV,” said a royal insider. “It’s something he’s lived with his entire life and he has been raised to think this way, but that doesn’t make it any less difficult especially as he gets older.”
Harry is currently third in line to the throne behind his father and brother.
“There comes a time in every man’s life when they want their own things. Where they want a family and a house and land to call their own and Harry has started to realize that may never happen unless he makes a radical move. He does love his family and so traditional things like murder are really out of the question,” continued the insider. “That’s why he’s started to consider other options. When he heard about this request from the Canadians to establish a more permanent head of state in the country he was certainly intrigued. Obviously it would be a little difficult, and he would most certainly upset his Gran, the Queen, but there comes a time for everyone when you have to be selfish and do what’s right for yourself rather than what’s right for everyone else. He’s been doing that all his life.”
Canada is a part of the Commonwealth of Nations which makes the Queen the legal head of state, though she rarely visits the country. The proposal from the Canadians would install Harry as the full-time regent.
“There are going to be a lot of legal and cultural hurdles to overcome if this were to go forward, but the option, a mass murder at Buckingham, is really the lesser of the two options. Given a choice, I’m sure most people would rather take the challenge over the bloodshed,” said Scrape TV International analyst Gustav Hander. “Aside from the issues at home, which would be enormous, there would also be an issue in Canada where they have grown quite comfortable with democracy and might not be inclined to going back to dictatorial rule. It’s true that they were loyalists, at least the English speaking people were, but that was a long time ago. Getting them to accept a King would be a challenge and could itself lead to bloodshed, especially in Quebec.”
Prince Andrew, the young brother of Phillip, is currently fourth in live to the throne and has long fought to become king of Piccadilly Circus, a commercial intersection in downtown London.
