Canadians want Will next in line for the throne

60 per cent think young prince should step over Charles


More than half of Canadians want Prince William to bypass Prince Charles and become the next King of England, according to a new poll. Before Will and Kate toured Canada, 40 per cent of Canadians thought Prince William should be next to take the throne. But after the nine-day visit, 60 per cent now say it’s Will’s turn next, according to polling firm Ipsos Reid. Of the 1,100 people surveyed, 81 per cent also said the young couple would improve the monarchy’s relevancy in Canada.
