PRINCE WILLIAM FAVOURED AS NEXT MONARCH



According to the results of a recent survey by The Discovery Channel, the majority of Britons would rather see Prince William succeed the Queen as the next Monarch, rather than his father Prince Charles. Apparently the fact that Prince William has recently rekindled his romance with his girlfriend Kate Middleton has boosted his popularity even more.

Despite the fact that Prince Charles is one of the most experienced and well trained heirs to the throne we have ever had, the public are still reluctant to accept him as King. Many remain unforgiving over his marriage breakup and are still reluctant to accept Camilla as a possible future Queen, preferring the late Princess Diana, whilst others have warmed to Camilla since her marriage. Three quarters of Britons are in favour of retaining the monarchy, whilst the same percentage question whether it gives value for money. One of the things I particularly like about England is the fact we have a Royal family and a Monarch to rule over us. Despite having just celebrated her 80th birthday, the Queen shows no signs of slowing down and is still one of the hardest working members of the Royal family. Her Majesty will be a hard act to follow for whoever succeeds her to the throne. Long may she reign over us!

LOL I was just looking for your link when I got your message. Happy New Year to you as well.

Managed to get a Christmas job so been busy working which tired me out tremendously so I have got way behing in blog visits.

I hope the Queen hangs in there for quite a while as William still has a lot of growing up to do. I would be quite happy to see Charles as King even with Camilla as Consort, Charles might have his quirks but has far more good points than bad ones unlike his sons.

Prince William sure is handsome. Do you actually have any say in whom will be the next monarch or is the decision completely in the hands of Charles? That would really be a blow to the ego to have so many people think your young inexperienced son would do a better job than you.

I'm with you, Naomi...I love the Royal Family and wish them all the best in the future. I like Prince Charles and would like to see him as King. His experiences in life would surely help him along.

Happy New Year and all the best in the coming year!

well your Constitution says something about the line of succession..despite popularity of the young Prince.

Happy New Year Naomi!

Glad you're ok Jackie. Nice to see you again. I personally think Charles has the benefit of wisdom and experiene that William doesn't have at the moment (but he will in a few year's time). I think William has a lot more growing up to do before he is ready to take the throne.

No unfortunately Marsha the public has no say in who becomes the next monarch. It is all linked to the line of succession and Prince Charles is the heir to the throne. Unfortunately the death of Diana and everything that happened with Camilla did irreparable damage to Pince Charles' reputation.

Naomi said...

I personally would like to see Prince Charles on the throne. I think he would make a good King. He has the benefit of wisdom and experience that William doesn't have, due to being such a young age. Happy New Year to you and Graham too Marion!

You're quite right Rick, whoever becomes our next Monarch will depend on the line of succession and Prince Charles is next in line to the throne and the rightful heir after The Queen, even if he is going to be 60 this year!
