REVEALED: Why Prince William will NOT go for the throne early instead of dad Charles
Prince Charles will take the throne next as William does not want to become King yet, a leading royal expert has claimed.
Almost half of Brits want Wills, 35, to take the reigns after Queen Elizabeth, a shocking survey revealed.
But his royal ambitions are far less grand than his dad’s, Gill Knappett writes in “Charles, Prince of Wales”.
She states: “Prince William does not wish to take the throne early.
“Although, like his father, William will be destined to have a far shorter reign than his grandmother, he has said he has no desire to ‘climb the ladder of kingship’ before his time.”
Gill also believes Charles, 69, will win over the British public if he takes the crown, Express.co.uk reports.
She added: “The Queen’s quiet dignity and grace won her a place in the hearts of the British people long ago.
“Without doubt, when the time comes our new King will serve with a strength of character that will continue to see our Royal Family the envy of the world.”
Daily Star Online previously revealed that William and Prince Harry, 33, may stop Camilla Parker Bowles, 70, from becoming Queen.
Clarence House said in 2005 that Camilla would become Princess Consort after she married Prince Charles.

It is thought Charles will require the backing of his two sons to instead make Camilla Queen.
However, it is unclear if they will provide enough support as “they are not close” to the Duchess of Cornwall, sources claim.
