Prince William 4/5 favourite to become the next British Monarch

Paddy Power

Irish bookmaker Paddy Power have made Prince William their 4/5 odds-on favourite to succeed Queen Elizabeth and become the next British Monarch.

The bookmakers issued their odds following the result of a recent ITV poll which found 58 percent of Australians wanted to see Prince William crowned King, compared to just 30 percent for his father Charles.

The 27 year-old prince who is second in line to the British throne is proving hugely popular down under with many people likening him to his mother Princess Diana. His visit has sparked rumours that the Aussie’s may rekindle their affection for the monarchy and has also prompted punters to bet on the Queen by-passing Charles in favour of her popular grandson.

Despite Prince William’s growing popularity, Australia is still the 1/2 favourite to become a Republic before 31st December 2014.

Paddy Power said:

St James’s Palace has previously denied that Prince William is being groomed as a ‘shadow king’ but if there’s one thing they can’t deny – it’s that young William’s popularity totally eclipses that of his fathers!

Next Monarch
4/5 Prince William
5/4 Prince Charles
8/1 Prince Harry

What will Australia be on 31st Dec 2014?
1/2 A Republic
7/2 A Commonwealth under Queen Elizabeth
5/1 A Commonwealth under Prince William
6/1 A Commonwealth under Prince Charles
20/1 Commonwealth under Prince Harry
