Prince William and Kate William are facing “intense anxiety” at the prospect of becoming King and Queen of England, according to The Independent.

The newspaper cites royal expert and former Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown as having put forward the idea that the Prince and Princess of Wales are perhaps not as enthused by the notion of ascending the throne just now as some people might believe.

Following King Charles’ shock cancer diagnosis back in January, William has been forced to step into his father’s role. Kate, meanwhile, will take on a more active hand in things once she is well enough to do so.

And while one might rightly assume that William has been groomed for the position of King ever since he was born, it would appear that the prospect is giving him cause for concern.

As per The Independent, Tina Brown said: “News of Charles’s cancer has put William and Catherine in frightening proximity to ascending the throne … The prospect of it, I am told, is causing them intense anxiety.”
