Prince Harry remains Britons’ second choice to become King amidst royal controversies

Prince Harry is the second most popular choice to be the next monarch, a new poll reveals.

Despite several high-profile attacks on the monarchy, the Duke of Sussex is ranked higher than the majority of the Royal Family.

Prince William was the most popular candidate to succeed King Charles.

The Prince of Wales is currently first in line to the throne and is expected to succeed his father.

Participants in the survey were asked, “Which Royal would you like to see take on the role of King or Queen next?”.

The full results are listed below:

  1. Prince William (47.5 per cent)
  2. Prince Harry (8.8 per cent)
  3. Kate, Princess of Wales (6.6 per cent)
  4. Princess Anne (4.3 per cent)
  5. Meghan Markle (2.7 per cent)
  6. Prince Edward (2.1 per cent)
  7. Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh (1.8 per cent)
  8. Princess Eugenie (1.7 per cent)
  9. Zara Tindall (1.6 per cent)
  10. Princess Beatrice (1.5 per cent)

Betfair Bingo conducted the survey, which included 2,006 UK adults.

It comes as the Royal Family’s decision to bestow royal titles on Archie and Lilibet is supported in a separate bombshell poll.

Earlier this month, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s children were named Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet of Sussex.

A survey of US citizens revealed that they support the move.

Over half of Americans (53%) believe their children should have the right to the titles, while 15% believe they should not have been given the titles.

Fourteen percent were unsure whether it was the right decision, and 18 percent were unconcerned about Archie and Lilibet’s new titles.
