Now you can see non-English news...

And suddenly, Prince William dethroned Kate Middleton in the popularity polls


In a new study by YouGov, the Prince of Wales emerges as the most popular member of the royal family. And this, despite the sympathy that the British have always over-testified to his wife.

In November 2022, she was ranked second in the ranking of the most popular members of English royalty, just behind Elizabeth II.

Kate Middleton, personality cherished by the British, then collected 68% of favorable opinions.

Four months later, a new YouGov study, carried out between March 18 and 20, nevertheless established that Prince William was now the most popular Windsor.

72% of respondents indicated that they had a very positive, or quite positive, opinion of the heir to the throne.

A resurgence in popularity

Nevertheless, the Princess of Wales retains a special place in the hearts of the British.

The mother of Princes George, Louis and Princess Charlotte, received 70% positive opinions in this poll.

A result also obtained by Princess Anne (more surprising).

King Charles III, whose coronation will take place in May, obtained 63% positive opinions, against 48% for his wife Camilla.

A study that demonstrates how much the Windsors have regained popularity since the release of Prince Harry's memoirs.

Scandals, Kate and William: the unlikely meeting


The rating of Wales had indeed collapsed in January, when the book Spare

, both having lost 7 and 8 points in the polls.

They have since regained two, as has Queen Consort Camilla.

Meghan Markle's popularity seems to be stagnating.

The British thus issued 22% of favorable opinions to the Duchess of Sussex in January and March, against 25% for Prince Harry, who won him 1% in the polls.

If the couple is more popular in the United States, where it collects respectively 44 and 47% of positive opinions, Wales also steals the show from them, because they remain the most appreciated members of the royal family there.
