British audiences have never felt the same affection for Prince Charles as they did for his mother – or sons.
A new poll, however, will always lead to a grim reading inside the palace walls. This shows that an astonishing 47% of the public now support the crown by skipping a generation and going straight to Prince William on the death of Queen Elizabeth. Only 27% actively want the crown to go to Charles, with the rest saying they don’t know, are complete abolitionists or prefer Harry (among 18-24 year olds, Harry is the most popular choice, beating William 23% in 22 years old). percent).
The long-held fantasy of cutting Charles from the line of succession – which would be a dream of Princess Diana after their divorce – has virtually no chance of happening. Even Graham Smith, CEO of the anti-monarchical group Republic, told the Shimmering: “No matter what the polls say, Charles will be king.”
Charles already manages much of the day-to-day affairs of the monarchy on his mother’s behalf in preparation for the succession, which has been painstakingly planned for decades. Removing him from the post of alleged heir would force him either to stand aside or to demand unprecedented intervention.
However, the new poll, commissioned by the British left-wing tabloid, the Shimmering, revealed the continuing challenges to the heir’s popularity, despite a carefully waged public relations battle to improve his public image over the past two decades.
It’s unclear whether Charles’s critics were emboldened by Prince Harry’s scathing criticism of his father during his interview with Oprah Winfrey, but the poll suggests more than half – 51% – believe that Harry and Meghan damaged the reputation of the monarchy.
Their intervention was not popular in Britain, which is likely to surprise the American public; 58% of Britons think they should be stripped of their royal titles, while only 23% support them to keep them.
Deltapoll interviewed 1,590 adults between March 31 and April 1 for the survey.
He revealed that 41% believe the Queen should stay in her position until she dies regardless of her health, while 27% think she should abdicate if her health deteriorates. 21% think she should abdicate sooner regardless of her state of health.
