UK still against 'Queen' Camilla

LONDON: A majority of Britons do not want to see Prince Charles' second wife become "Queen Camilla" if he accedes to the throne, a survey suggested yesterday.

The Populus poll for The Times said only 26 per cent of the 1,503 people questioned were happy to see the Duchess of Cornwall - as she is known - become Charles' queen.

On the other hand, 56pc would prefer her to take the planned title of Princess Consort, the newspaper reported as the couple's first wedding anniversary approaches on Sunday.

The couple, who returned recently from an overseas visit to India and Egypt, were married in a civil ceremony on April 9, 2005 at the Guildhall, in Windsor, west of London.

The Times said women appeared to be more hostile to Camilla becoming queen because of their sympathy for Charles' first wife, Princess Diana, who died in a car crash in Paris in August 1997.

They were also thought to be more disapproving of Camilla, who was Charles' long-standing mistress throughout his marriage to Diana.

Overall, 64pc of people questioned said they did not care either way about the union.

The poll also found evidence of a significant, lingering antipathy to Charles ever succeeding his mother, Queen Elizabeth.

Almost 39pc of the sample preferred Charles' son, Prince William, as the next monarch, a statistical dead heat with Charles at 37pc.

Britian definitely not ready to accept Camilla to be our next Queen. Who knows what happens in 10 years time. We weren't ready to accept Charles and Camilla to marry 9 years ago but now, we do. I would not be surprise, to be honest with you, if she will be our next queen in 10 years time.

The British public have said no to Camilla becoming queen - and only 37 per cent want Prince Charles to become King.

Just one in five people think the Duchess of Cornwall - who married the prince last April - should one day reign as queen.
And almost two-thirds have no interest in the royal marriage, according to an online poll.

Opposition to Camilla is strongest among women, who are more sympathetic to the late princess Diana and disapproving towards Prince Charles' adultery.

Many blame Camilla for the break-up of Charles' first marriage and only 18 per cent would support her becoming queen.

The findings of the Populus poll will come as a huge disappointment to the royal family, who hoped the marriage of Prince Charles to Camilla would produce the usual royal wedding optimism.

The results have shown what an uphill struggle the royals face in turning around public opinion on the monarchy.

Alan Berry, co-founder of the Diana Circle - which aims to preserve the Princess's memory, summed up the group's feelings. He said: 'Why does it come as a surprise to anyone that the unpopular couple appear thoroughly content in each other's company and so happy, compared with the frostiness of his last visit with Diana?

'Would Camilla have looked so pleased with herself if Charles was having a long-term affair with another woman behind her back?'
