Prince Charles is “eager” to become monarch and it is highly unlikely he will stand aside to watch the Duke of Cambridge take his place after the reign of the Queen ends, royal author Clive Irving said. The Prince of Wales, the expert argued, is a less modern and liked figure than Prince William.

However, Mr Irving does not believe there is a chance Prince Charles would renounce to the throne, no matter what the public opinion says.

The expert told Express.co.uk: “Charles is eager.

“This man has waited so, so long to get there, and he is not going to give it up on the day that was up for him.” 

Mr Irving, author of the upcoming book The Last Queen: Elizabeth II’s Seventy Year Battle to Save the House of Windsor, expressed his views on future King Charles days before YouGov published a new survey focused on who the public think should succeed the Queen.

Out of a total of 1674 people surveyed, 14 percent spoke in favour of republicanism at the end of the Queen’s reign.

This data becomes even more worrying for the Prince of Wales if compared to answers to the same question given on June 29.

Then, out of 1666 people surveyed, 37 percent said Charles should succeed the Queen while 38 percent preferred the Duke of Cambridge.

On January 13, Prince Charles was favoured over William as successor to his 94-year-old mother, making his drop in popularity even more significant.

Out of the 1660 people polled on the day, 39 percent said to be happy with Charles becoming King while 36 percent said to prefer the Duke of Cambridge to his father.

While Prince Charles’s popularity appears to have taken a hit over the past few months, the Queen remains steadily the most-loved and popular member of the Royal Family, YouGov data shows.

And, according to Mr Irving, the monarch wants to retain her position for years to come.

“She has got enormous stamina and she has made it very clear – she wants to do the job until she feels she can’t go on doing it.

“And she can very much keep on doing it.”

The Queen ascended to the throne in 1952, following the death of her father King George VI.

Four years earlier, on her 21st birthday, she had already pledged to serve the country and the Commonwealth for life.
