Prince Harry should be King instead of William and Charles, millennials believe

A poll seeking to find the nation’s favourite Royals found young Brits favoured Prince Harry to be King over Prince William.

The Duke of Sussex beat out his brother William 23% to 22% among 18 to 24-year-old’s for the throne, with just 5% of aged between 57 and 75% in favour of Harry.

Deltapoll ran the survey alongside the Daily Mirror, surveying 1,590 people from across the country.

The poll also showed that over half of voters believed Prince Harry damaged the reputation of the Royal Family.

A further 31% said Meghan Markle and Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, which revealed a senior member of the Royal Family allegedly asked about Archie’s skin tone prior to his birth, made no different to the reputation of the Firm.

Just 9% of those surveyed said the interview improved the Royal Family's reputation, with 47% in favour of Prince William inheriting the throne.

This is in comparison to the true heir, Prince Charles, who received a vote of just 27%.

A whopping 18% believed the monarchy should be abolished entirely, which suggests the Firm's tumultuous year hasn't eradicated its support base.

The Royal Family have battled questions over Prince Andrew's relationship with dead paedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.

Senior Royals have also been forced to confront Meghan and Harry stepping back from the Firm, which brought with it accusations of bullying within the Palace, turmoil between Princess Diana's two sons, and race allegations.

As well as this, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were forced to isolate in Windsor Castle due to the pandemic.

The Duke of Edinburgh was then hospitalised in February 2021 and underwent an operation to his heart while battling an infection.

While he was being treated, the Queen was left to deal with the fallout of Meghan and Harry's Oprah interview.

In a statement, Her Majesty said: "The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.

"The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.

"Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members."
