William, not Charles!

The recent news item published in all the dailies over the last few days, reporting the British public's preference for their next monarch, is just 'Hot Air'! I feel that it will only remains more as an opinion than any thing else!
The century-old British tradition of hereditary, which governs the tradition of royal succession, is not going to be based on the ballot box, whatever the public might feel or fancy!
Like it or not, if Charles is alive, he will be the next king; and there will be no 'ifs' or 'buts' about it! Crowning the grandson, while the son is alive, is just not 'on', in any way!
Monarchy in UK is steeped in tradition, and till they do not do away with monarchy, they have to live with it! It is more about pomp and ceremony than anything else, as the crown has no power of governing the UK! That is the parliament's business, with the Prime Minister appointed to head the government. All the news and views shown on TV or printed in the news media is just 'news' and 'views', nothing else! That is the bitter truth!
