LONDON (AP):

Britain's Prince Harry has suggested that no one in the royal family really wishes to rise to the throne and that it is duty, rather than desire, that prompts them to continue serving the British people.

In an interview with Newsweek magazine, Harry made candid remarks about being a royal and his determination to lead as ordinary a life as he could.

"Is there any one of the royal family who wants to be king or queen? I don't think so, but we will carry out our duties at the right time," he said.

He does his own shopping, he added and would continue to do so "even if I was king.

"People would be amazed by the ordinary life William and I live," he said. "My mother took a huge part in showing me an ordinary life, including taking me and my brother to see homeless people. Thank goodness I'm not completely cut off from reality."
