A MailOnline survey found that around 70% of respondents are happy that Kate Middleton will one day become King William’s queen consort.
The Deltapoll survey found that the majority of respondents believe the Prince and Princess of Wales should remain firmly in the line of succession, with three quarters of respondents believing Prince William should ascend the throne upon the death of his father.
Some other members of the royal family, however, fare less well in public opinion.
Around 77% of those surveyed said they would remove Prince Andrew, who was removed from royal duties in January 2022, with the approval of the late Queen, following the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.
The Deltapoll survey for MailOnline found that the Princess of Wales ranks among the most popular royals, with 70% of respondents saying they would not remove her from the line of succession to become queen consort.
Some 61 per cent of those surveyed suggest the Duke of Sussex should also be removed from the line of succession, while 57 per cent think Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Prince Andrew’s daughters, should also be removed from the line of succession.
On behalf of MailOnline, Deltapoll surveyed 2,009 UK adults online between September 1 and 4, 2023.
Kate Middeton, who married Prince William in 2011, has since devoted her professional life to the royal family, leading public engagements and championing causes close to her heart, including mental health and family-focused charities.
Since entering the royal spotlight in the early 2000s, Kate has become one of the most photographed women in the world, going from girl-next-door status, running around the University of St Andrews and partying with Prince William, to an elegant future queen.
Kate Middleton will become the wife of future King William upon her father’s death, with the majority of the public agreeing that the Princess of Wales should serve alongside William.
