Prince William will be King one day, and author Duncan Larcombe believes that he is ready to step up and take on the coveted title.
“I’ve seen a lot of staff come and go in my years covering the royal family and William is known to be a great boss," he said. “He makes sure his staff are seen as much as possible as colleagues rather than employees. He’s very modern.”
However, the author noted there's one "problem" with William. "He does have a short fuse," he shared. “We don’t see it much and we certainly haven’t seen it publicly in the way we have with Charles, Philip or Harry, all of whom have shown their anger. It’s rare but when something goes wrong, William can lose his temper and give the people who work for him a dressing down."
“There was an incident on a royal tour to Australia years ago when somebody shouted stuff out on a visit. William let it rip at the team who had put the visit together. But William is known as a fair boss," he continued.
On the other hand, William's wife, Kate Middleton, is as sweet as sugar. “It won’t surprise anyone to know that we’ve never heard of Kate losing her rag with anyone. And trust me, we do get to hear when these incidents with staff occur," he said.
Even though Prince Charles is next in line to the throne, the dad-of-three, 39, has been thinking about how he will shake things up when it's his turn to be the leader.
"William is already thinking about the future of the Monarchy and the changes he’ll make," a source spilled to Us Weekly. "While he respects protocol, he plans to modernize some aspects and is making it his mission to be more relatable than previous generations."
"William accepts that being in the spotlight is part of the job, and is fine with it," the insider added. "He takes his future role as King and seriously and sees at as a great honor and privilege to be in his position. The Monarchy and his family will always come first."
