Prince William should skip his dad, Prince Charles, to the throne, according to a recent poll. If this happens, the Duke of Cambridge will immediately succeed his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Daily Star readers were asked to participate in a poll centered on who they want to replace Her Majesty after she passes away. The options include Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George. A fourth section is for those who believe that the monarchy should be removed completely.

More than 6,000 readers responded to the poll and the results proved to be a landslide. Over 59 percent of 3,796 individuals voted for Prince William as their next King and said that they want him to skip over Prince Charles.

Approximately 1,673 or 26 percent stuck with Prince Charles as their top bet the role of King. And since Prince George is 5 years old, it seems that readers still cannot imagine him taking over the throne. Only 102 picked the youngster as their next King.

About 14 percent of 1,000 readers of the publication said that they want the monarchy to be abolished. The results of this week’s poll were quite similar to the results that the publication received last year when they asked their readers the same question.

At that time, 10,000 people or 68 percent backed the Duke of Cambridge as their favored King. Prince Charles, on the other hand, only garnered 23 percent. Charlie Proctor, the editor of Royal Central, commented on the poll results and said that they are disappointing but not surprising.

Proctor credited Prince Charles’ affair with Camilla Parker Bowles and the break down of his marriage to Princess Diana as the main reason why the British public doesn’t want him to be their King.

“Monarchy is not the ‘X-Factor.’ You don’t vote for who you want to be King or who fails to make it past the judges’ houses… It’s not a popularity contest, and Charles will take to the throne come what may,” he said.
