As a member of the Royal family, Prince Harry is used to rumors started about him spreading like wildfire. Most of the time, these rumors prove to be far from true. And the latest of them is just that, with speculation that Prince Harry is to become a father proving to be very wide of the mark.
Life & Style was the first publication to mention this rumor, insisting that 31-year-old Prince Harry was to become a father following a one-night stand with a 19-year-old.
However, the fact that Life & Style has previously made wild accusations regarding a whole heap of celebrities, including false stories about Prince Harry’s sister-in-law Kate Middleton, immediately meant that this story needed to be taken with a grain of salt.
Life & Style had even tried to back up their claims by using a hypnotist named as Keith Barry to reveal that he’d had a premonition that Prince Harry “will create a scandal by getting a girl pregnant.” Unfortunately for Mr. Barry, his premonition is either a little bit too early or, more likely, completely and utterly wrong.
Both Gossip Cop and the Mirror ultimately came out and revealed that, as expected, Life & Style’s story that Prince Harry was soon to become a father, Kate Middleton would be an auntie, and Prince William would be an uncle, was in fact false.
Life & Style had originally quoted an insider, via Hollywood Life, as remarking, “Harry getting a one-night stand pregnant has been one of Queen Elizabeth II’s worst fears.”
The story then added, “It’s the biggest scandal the royals could ever face. And the queen is especially upset because this isn’t the first time such a threat has rocked the palace. She’s angry about the whole situation.”
Life & Style, via Gossip Cop, also insisted that Queen Elizabeth is “furious” with Prince Harry because of his antics, before they then added that the head of the monarchy would not be greeting the the faux extra great-grandchild in the same manner that she embraced Prince George and Princess Charlotte. In fact, the story added, “The Queen adores Harry, but she would do everything in her power to keep the child a secret.”
Instead of just stopping with the fake story that Prince Harry had got a 19-year-old woman pregnant, they then decided to try and insist that the fifth-in-line to the throne wants to have a “shotgun wedding” and marry the individual that he’d impregnated.
“He’s a decent man, and would want to marry the girl and try to make it work,” the source continued. “It’s the right thing to do.”
The speculated drama didn’t stop there, though. In fact, it was even ratcheted up several notches too, with the fake source claiming that Queen Elizabeth had dismissed Prince Harry’s request for a “shotgun wedding.”
Kate Middleton and Prince William then joined the fray of the story, with the source stating that the happily married Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge had told the Harry, “You don’t have to listen to your grandmother.”
The story then went on to insist that the Queen wasn’t going to stop Prince Harry, and that he wanted to proceed with his nuptials. The repercussions of such a wedding? Well, the source declared, “Harry could be forced to give up his title as prince.”
Obviously, since the story is 100 percent false, that is simply not going to happen, while it’s probably best to wait until Kensington Palace or Prince Harry confirms that he is going to become a father before you go out and buy him a card congratulating him.
