Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles are preparing for their future roles as king and queen of England. But a recent poll revealed that Brits still don’t want to see the Duchess of Cornwall as the next queen.
Express asked their readers to vote in a recent poll and learned that 61 percent of Brits said that they won’t be happy if Prince Charles’ wife, Camilla, becomes queen. Only 35 percent of the respondents said that they will be happy and four percent said that they don’t know.
“Does the public get a say over anything? I have voted that I don’t want Camilla to become queen,” one respondent commented.
Another person said that she wants the role of king and queen to be passed on to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
“Having been a lifelong royalist I will be done with them if Camilla is allowed to be queen. She has to shoulder some of the blame for Diana’s unhappiness IMO,” another person said.
But there are also those who expressed their support for the Duchess of Cornwall.
“I would not mind… he looks so much happier with her…” one person commented.
And another royal fan said that the monarchy should just be abolished after Queen Elizabeth dies.
Meanwhile, royal author Penny Junor said that regardless of what the public might think, Prince Charles would insist for Camilla to be Queen when he ascends the throne.
In the book “The Duchess: The Untold Story,” Junor said that the heir to the throne is extremely proud of his wife because of everything that she has done and sacrificed for him.
“She is in this position because of her love for the man, not because of her desire to be anything more than a support to him. The whole business of his accession is something she dreads and, in her inimitable way, is choosing not to think about. At the end of the day, it will be up to Charles, in consultation with others,” Junor said.
