London: Most Britons would like to see Prince William become the country’s next king, rather than his father Prince Charles, who is next in line, according to a report.

However, this is not going to happen, as courtiers believe that Prince Charles is determined to succeed Queen Elizabeth II, reports a daily.

Prince Charles and his wife Camilla earned warm public sympathy last week when their car was assaulted by rioting student demonstrators in London.

Prince William and his bride-to-be Kate Middleton recently attended a charity gala in Norfolk, England.
