Prince Charles handed huge blow as public wants William as King after Queen’s reign ends

2494

PRINCE WILLIAM should become King once the Queen’s reign ends, a new poll has claimed today.

A further 23 percent of Millennials asked in the survey said Prince Harry should become the next Monarch over his brother and father.

In the exclusive poll commissioned by the Daily Mirror, 18 percent of those asked believed Britain should no longer have a Monarchy.

This poll comes as the Royal Family reels from the bombshell revelations made during Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

During the interview, Meghan claimed an unnamed royal raised concerns about Archie’s skin colour during the Duchesses’ pregnancy.

Commenting on the impact of the interview, 51 percent believed Duke and Duchess had damaged the reputation of the Firm.

Just 31 percent of those asked believed the revelations had made no difference to the Royal Family’s reputation.

Within the 51 percent who believed the Royals’ reputation has been damaged, 62 percent of those were in the Baby Boomer generation.

Just 36 percent are Millennials who believed the pair had damaged the Firm’s reputation as the pair continue their lives in Los Angeles.

“Yet this poll tells us people no longer care about the hereditary system, they want a choice.

“The huge gulf between generations underscores how disconnected the royals are from modern attitudes.

“This poll sets up the monarchy for a major crisis in support at the start of the decade that will probably see the succession of King Charles.

“As we approach the end of the Queen’s reign this medieval system is going to collide with modern British values.

“And the only credible solution is for the people to choose our head of state.

“It’s time Britain had a serious grown-up debate about who replaces the Queen. If voters want a choice that can only happen in a republic.”

Following the tell-all interview with Oprah, the Palace revealed it had taken all the accusations seriously and would address them in private.

A statement read: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.

“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning.

“Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.
