Poll shows public want Prince Charles to be king

Wednesday March 23, 2011

A recent poll has revealed that for the first time in six years Prince Charles is the most popular choice to be the next king.

Perhaps reflecting mounting royal wedding fever there is growing support for the monarchy.

Forty-five percent of people interviewed said they would like the Prince of Wales to succeed the Queen, compared with 37 percent preferring Prince William.

However the YouGov poll for Prospect magazine also showed that one in four people wish the Queen to stand down as monarch before her 85th birthday next month.
