Kate’s great! Three quarters of Brits believe Duchess will make a good Queen

28 April 2021

More than three quarters of Britons believe the Duchess of Cambridge will make a good Queen when the time comes, a new poll shows.

The YouGov survey of 5,055 adults in Great Britain, published on Wednesday, found that 43% thought Kate definitely will make a good Queen – while 33% said she probably will.

This compared to just 3% who said she definitely will not, and 2% who said she probably will not.

The poll comes on the eve of the Duke and Duchess’ 10th wedding anniversary on Thursday.

Kate became a future queen when she married second-in-line William at Westminster Abbey on April 29 2011 after an eight-year relationship.

The pair met while studying at St Andrews University, and 10 years on from their wedding, have three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Women were more likely to think Kate will make a good Queen, with 51% saying she definitely will and 31% that she probably will.

This compared to 35% of men for both answers.

Leavers were also much more likely to think the Duchess will definitely make a good Queen at 57%, compared to 36% of Remainers.

The poll also found that the majority of people did not think it made a difference that Kate was a “commoner”, and did not come from an aristocratic or royal background.

Some 31% of people said it was better that she did not come from an aristocratic or royal background, while 59% said it made no difference.

Only 2% said it was worse that the Duchess did not come from an aristocratic or royal background.
