A recent Royal Central poll shows that the Duchess of Cambridge is Britain’s favourite member of the Royal Family.
In a survey of just over 1,000 people a majority of 28% of people said that their favourite member of the Royal Family was the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge.
Her Majesty The Queen was a very close second, behind at 27% and remains extremely popular.
In second poll, we found that 83% of people say that The Queen should not abdicate due to old age and should continue reigning.
This poll comes just hours after the announcement that the King of the Belgians would become the second European Monarch to abdicate in just 3 months, after Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands abdicated at the end of April, making way for her son King Willem-Alexander.
Prince Harry has seen an increase in his approval ratings coming in at third most popular member of the Royal Family with 16% of people saying that he is their favourite member of the Royal Family.
With the Duchess of Cambridge preparing to give birth to the future Monarch of the United Kingdom (and Commonwealth), the future looks bright for the royals. We found that a majority of 27% of people think that the Duchess of Cambridge will give birth before 12th July.
With approval ratings in the UK for the Monarchy also as high as ever at 73% (compared to just 16% who support an elected head of state) – the British Monarchy is also one of the most successful and popular in the world.
