Prince William and his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge could join Prince Charles in his reign due to their popularity among younger generations, it has been claimed. The Daily Mail’s Diary Editor Richard Eden warned that the future of the Monarchy could be in trouble if Charles reigns alone.
He told Palace Confidential, on MailPlus: “The public just isn’t very interested in Charles and Camilla and that is a problem.

“For an institution that relies on the public’s support, I think that’s a genuine problem and why we will see a sort of joint reign with William and Catherine.”
Both Charles and William have stepped up to support the Queen – who celebrated her Platinum Jubilee in June – as mobility issues have forced her to miss engagements in recent months.
She added: “Suggestions that the crown should skip a generation are well, well out.
“I don’t think William should be made to take on that level of responsibility at his relatively young age.”
Yet a joint reign could provide a good balance for both William and his young family and Charles and his retirement.
