It’s looking increasingly likely that Prince Harry will never be King of England.
The current sixth in line to the throne could see himself forced down the line of succession if Prince William and Kate Middleton announce they are expecting a fourth child.

A new report from the Express reveals betting site Coral make it2-1 that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will announce they are expecting a fourth child in 2019 – meaning Harry will be pushed down to seventh position.
“This latest gamble could suggest that Kate and William are set to extend their family in the near future as punters have been rushing in to back the couple to announce they are expecting their fourth child at some point in 2019,” said Coral’s John Hill.
After serving in the @BritishArmy for ten years, The Duke of Sussex has committed himself to promoting the welfare of members of the Armed Forces and veterans. The Duke knows the lasting effects military service can have, as soldiers recover from PTS after battle or struggle to get back into the normalities of civilian life. Through his work with servicemen and women, The Duke has also seen how families benefit from extra support when their loved ones are away and adjusting to life back home. He met many soldiers and their families at the Lord Mayor's Big Curry Lunch in London today. This is an annual event which raises money for @soldierscharity to support those who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Duke's work with wounded servicemen and women has included creating @weareinvictusgames, volunteering with the Army's Personnel Recovery Unit in London, trekking with wounded servicemen and women to the South Pole and in the Arctic and supporting a number of adventure challenges through his Endeavour Fund. The Duchess of Sussex was unfortunately unable to attend today, but has joined her husband in supporting the troops at the Invictus Games, Endeavour Fund and with the TILS Fund, as an extension of her previous work in this space. By participating in events like today's, The Duke hopes that servicemen and women are recognised for their unique skill set and abilities, and that we all work together to ensure that they and their families have the support they need and deserve during and after service.
If this is the case, William and Kate’s fourth child will go immediately after their other children, Prince George, princes Charlotte and Prince Louis.
However, Harry may not need to worry just yet.
Earlier this week the Express revealed that Kate had addressed recent pregnancy rumours on a trip to Northern Ireland this year, uttering several words that revealed whether or not she was expecting baby number four with Prince William.
While greeting a crowd at Ballymena, royal fans began to shout the question "baby number four?"
