Most Brits now say Harry should be stripped of his place as 5th in line to the throne and blocked from ever becoming King, new poll shows
- More than half of population would support Harry’s removal from succession
- The poll also revealed 51% said Harry and his family should have titles revoked
- Survey shows Prince Harry’s popularity has decreased since death of the Queen
More than half of the population would support Prince Harry being removed from the order of succession to prevent him ever becoming King, an exclusive poll for The Mail on Sunday reveals.
Of the 1,504 people questioned by Deltapoll, 52 per cent supported the move to strip the Duke of Sussex of his position as fifth in line to the Throne, behind his brother the Prince of Wales and William’s children George, Charlotte and Louis.
Only 27 per cent of people opposed the idea of stripping Prince Harry of his birthright and 21 per cent had no view.
Furthermore, 51 per cent of those polled said that Harry and his young family should have their titles revoked.
At present the Prince and his wife retain their titles as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their children Archie, 4, and Lilibet, 2, can use their titles as Prince and Princess as they are the grandchildren of the reigning monarch, King Charles.

People were asked: ‘How would you say your view of Prince Harry has changed, if at all, since the passing of Queen Elizabeth in September 2022?’
Some 45 per cent said their opinion of Harry had deteriorated in the past year while only 12 per cent said it had improved.
The Prince and Princess of Wales fared much better in the opinion ratings, with 76 per cent saying that they thought that both Prince William and Catherine were doing well in their new roles.
Most people also chose Prince William as the senior Royal best-placed to secure the future of the Commonwealth.
The poll results raise the question of if Harry should also be stripped of his constitutional role as a counsellor of state – which technically allows him to stand in for his father on matters of state.
It comes as Buckingham Palace last week deleted any reference to Harry as ‘His Royal Highness’ on the official royal website.
The poll also revealed a boost for King Charles. The majority of those questioned – 70 per cent – said that the King was performing his duties well as he nears the end of his first year on the throne.
