Pass the Crown, Charles

Queen Elizabeth has always been a favorite of the people, falling a little short last year to Meghan Markle, but still ranking high on the royal popularity list. Meanwhile, her son, the future King of England falls somewhere at the bottom of that list.

Prince Charles has always lacked the love and support of his people, although it is not exactly clear why. Some feel that it started when his marriage to Princess Diana failed or when he chose to marry Camilla, the woman he’d had an affair with.

Regardless of why, a recent survey conducted by Britain’s Independent showed that as much as 46% of the public thinks that Charles should pass the crown to his eldest son, Prince William. Since Charles is past the age of retirement and has not always been thrilled about the prospect of being King, passing the crown may be a realistic option.
