Further Description

A ComRes poll for ITV News shows that the public want to see Kate as Queen rather than Camilla, but only just over a quarter think she’s right for William

As Kate Middleton and Prince William announce their engagement, ITV News can reveal what the public really thinks of their match.

A survey conducted by ComRes for ITV News shows that just 29% of the public think Kate is the right woman to marry Prince William. But when comparing her to Camilla, 43% say they’d want to see Kate be the next Queen, with just 15% saying they would rather Camilla.

However, this may be problematic as just 28% of respondents believe that once married William should be next in line to the throne, with 45% disagreeing. William is more popular among women though, as 32% of female respondents said that William should be next in line to the throne once married, compared to 24% of men.

Even less popular among the public is the notion that Prince William should become King when he is married. Just 14% agree with this move, while 59% disagree.

The findings of this poll will be broadcast on ITV News at Ten on 16th November 2010.

ComRes interviewed a random sample of 2012 GB adults between 20th and 22nd October 2010.  Data were weighted to be demographically representative of all GB adults.
