Although Prince Charles is next in line to the throne, a survey run by Deltapoll showed the majority of the 1,590 asked would prefer the Duke of Cambridge to become King over his father. In the poll, 47 percent of those asked voted that William should bypass his father to become King. Just 27 percent stated Charles should be the next King in the poll which ran between March 31 and April 1.

A further 23 percent of Millennials asked in the survey said Prince Harry should become the next Monarch over his brother and father. 

In the exclusive poll commissioned by the Daily Mirror, 18 percent of those asked believed Britain should no longer have a Monarchy.

This poll comes as the Royal Family reels from the bombshell revelations made during Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

During the interview, Meghan claimed an unnamed royal raised concerns about Archie’s skin colour during the Duchesses’ pregnancy.

Commenting on the impact of the interview, 51 percent believed Duke and Duchess had damaged the reputation of the Firm.

Just 31 percent of those asked believed the revelations had made no difference to the Royal Family’s reputation.

Within the 51 percent who believed the Royals’ reputation has been damaged, 62 percent of those were in the Baby Boomer generation.

Just 36 percent are Millennials who believed the pair had damaged the Firm’s reputation as the pair continue their lives in Los Angeles.

Commenting on the poll’s findings, CEO of anti-monarch group Republic, Graham Smith said: “No matter what the polls say Charles will be king.

“Yet this poll tells us people no longer care about the hereditary system, they want a choice.

“The huge gulf between generations underscores how disconnected the royals are from modern attitudes.

“This poll sets up the monarchy for a major crisis in support at the start of the decade that will probably see the succession of King Charles.

“As we approach the end of the Queen’s reign this medieval system is going to collide with modern British values.

“And the only credible solution is for the people to choose our head of state.

“It’s time Britain had a serious grown-up debate about who replaces the Queen. If voters want a choice that can only happen in a republic.”

Following the tell-all interview with Oprah, the Palace revealed it had taken all the accusations seriously and would address them in private.

A statement read: “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.

“Whilst 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.”

Following the interview, Oprah also said following a conversation with Harry that neither the Queen nor the Duke of Edinburgh had made the comments in relation to Archie’s skin colour.
