More than three quarters of Brits 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 per cent thought Kate definitely will make a good Queen – while 33 per cent said she probably will.
This compared to just per cent who said she definitely will not, and 2 per cent who said she probably will not.
Women were more likely to think Kate will make a good Queen, with 51 per cent saying she definitely will and 31 per cent that she probably will.
This compared to 35 per cent of men for both answers.
Leavers were also much more likely to think the Duchess will definitely make a good Queen at 57 per cent, compared to 36 per cent 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 per cent 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 per cent said it was worse that the Duchess did not come from an aristocratic or royal background.
The poll came on the eve of Thursday’s 10th wedding anniversary for the Duke and Duchess.
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.
