The anti-monarchy organization Republic has reacted to the recent poll results that placed Prince William as the most favored royal in the UK, while King Charles slipped to fourth place in popularity.

Prince William, the future king, was closely followed in the rankings by Princess Anne and his wife, Kate Middleton, who holds the title of Princess of Wales.

A royal expert, Cameron Walker, shared the YouGov survey on social media and tweeted, “Breaking News: Prince William, Princess Anne, and Princess Catherine are the top three royals that the British public have a positive opinion of, according to new @YouGov data.”

The royal expert further commented, “Despite being almost a year into King Charles’ reign, Prince Andrew, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle continue to rank at the bottom of opinion polls.”

In response, the anti-monarchy group Republic tweeted, “It’s quite unfortunate for Charles if he polls lower than Anne. He’s 20 points below the queen and significantly less popular than many elected heads of state.”

This poll highlights the evolving popularity of royals following the passing of Queen Elizabeth, with Prince Charles now ranked lower despite being the heir to the throne.
