Prince William faces demands to leapfrog Charles to become next Monarch


Prince William faces demands to leapfrog his father Prince Charles in the line of succession, royal expert Thomas Mace-Archer-Mills has claimed.

“I think there is a very big generational gap here and unfortunately the older generation still has not forgiven the Prince of Wales for divorcing the beautiful lively Diana,” argued Mr Mace-Archer-Mills.

“So then we have the Millenials that just love young people, if you’re not trending or tweeting or whatever your out.”

He added: “I for one am a staunch supporter of Prince Charles.

“He has been the longest-serving Prince of Wales over 50 years now.

“There is no one better placed to do the job.

“He knows the job he has trained from the beginning of his life for this job.

“But he is a man misunderstood.

He added: “He was pushing organics and green living back in the 70s, 80s when everyone laughed at him.”

It comes after a survey run by Deltapoll showed the majority of the 1,590 asked would prefer the Duke of Cambridge to become King over his father.

In the poll, 47 percent of those asked voted that William should bypass his father to become King.

Just 27 percent stated Charles should be the next King in the poll which ran between March 31 and April 1.

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

Commenting on the poll’s findings, CEO of anti-monarch group Republic, Graham Smith said: “No matter what the polls say Charles will be king.

“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.
