Britons want 4 Royal Family members cut from line of succession in surprising poll

A recent poll conducted on the British Royal Family has shed light on the public’s opinions about the line of succession. The results have ignited debates on who should remain and who may be excluded from this esteemed lineage.

Surprisingly, over half of the respondents expressed their desire to see two prominent Royal Family members removed from the line of succession.

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, both grown women with their own lives and responsibilities found themselves at the center of this unexpected public opinion.

Approximately 57 percent of those surveyed believed that Princess Eugenie, aged 33, and Princess Beatrice, aged 35, should no longer be included in the current line of succession.

While these results may be surprising to some, it’s important to note that recent royal events have witnessed a significant reduction in the number of active royals participating.

During the Trooping the Colour ceremony in June of this year, neither Princess Beatrice nor Princess Eugenie graced the royal balcony.

Only 14 family members were present to wave to the adoring crowds below. This apparent sidelining of the late Queen’s granddaughters is a reflection of their roles outside the Royal Family, where they hold regular jobs and do not receive income from the Sovereign Grant.

Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, has often praised her daughters on her podcast, Tea Talk, referring to them as “great working mothers.” Beatrice and Eugenie enjoy what Rachel Andrews, co-host of Keeping Up With The Windsors podcast, has termed the “best of both worlds.”

They are part of the royal institution yet have the freedom to lead lives out of the limelight. Occasionally, they are spotted in paparazzi shots attending social events.

Beatrice, a business consultant, is happily married to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and has a daughter and stepson.

Eugenie, on the other hand, works as an associate director at an art gallery in London and shares her life with husband Jack Brooksbank and their two sons.

The Deltapoll survey, commissioned by MailOnline, further revealed that the public is also in favor of omitting Prince Andrew, the father of Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, from the line of succession. This comes as no surprise, given his removal from royal duties in January 2022 following the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.

A significant majority, approximately 77 percent of respondents, believe Prince Andrew should be excluded.

Prince Harry, known for his independent spirit and controversial decisions, also garnered attention in the survey. Approximately 61 percent of those surveyed expressed the view that Prince Harry should be removed from the line of succession.

However, not all members of the Royal Family faced the same level of scrutiny. Princess Kate, beloved by the public for her grace and dedication, enjoyed strong support.

Around 70 percent of respondents expressed their approval of her eventual role as Queen Consort when Prince William ascends the throne.

Furthermore, the majority of those surveyed believed that both Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, and his son Prince William should remain in the line of succession

A resounding three-quarters of respondents expressed their preference for Prince William to ascend to the throne after his father.

The poll, conducted online from September 1 to September 4, 2023, surveyed 2,009 British adults. The results reflect a nuanced and evolving perspective on the British Royal Family and its future.
