Monarchy Madness! Brits Want Prince William To Become King Over Prince Charles, New Poll Reveals
Even though Prince Charles is next in line to become king after Queen Elizabeth II abdicates the throne, Brits are hoping that Prince William will step in instead.
When people were asked, "When the Queen does leave the throne, who of the following would you prefer to become king?" 47 percent of people — 39 percent male, 55 percent female — put down William, 38.
27 percent of polltakers want Charles as king, with 5 percent ages 18 to 24 voting for him. 18 percent of Brits are in favor of the country no longer having a monarchy, while eight percent of people didn't have an answer.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry scored lower than his father, with only eight percent of people wanting him to become king. However, 23 percent of people ages 18-24 are in favor of Harry becoming prince, while William got 21 percent supporting him in that age group.
Princess Anne received five percent of the votes, while Prince Andrew — who stepped back from his royal duties after it was revealed he was friends with late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein — got two percent.
1,590 adults participated in the poll between March 31 and April 1, Deltapoll said.
"This is obviously not decided by the British public, but Prince William is the top choice, by some distance. There are big age differences, however, and among 18 to 24 year olds Harry comes out on top," Deltapoll director Joe Twyman tweeted about the results.

Last month, another poll revealed that Brits wanted Meghan Markle and Harry to be stripped of their royal titles after their tell-all interview aired on CBS on March 7.
51 percent of Brits wanted them to be demoted, while 28 percent were against the move.
During the tell-all, Meghan claimed someone in the royal family was "concerned" over Archie's skin color. Just two days later, Buckingham Palace responded to the allegations.
“The following statement is issued by Buckingham Palace on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen,” the statement, which was shared on social media on Tuesday, March 9, began.
“The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Meghan and Harry. 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. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.”
