A recent YouGov poll has revealed that more people in the United Kingdom would support Piers Morgan over Prince Harry to be the next King. The results have stunned the nation, with many questioning the legitimacy of the poll.
“We knew the ginger whinger was unpopular, but this is ridiculous,” said a YouGov spokesperson, referring to Prince Harry’s well-known red hair and tendency to complain about his life as a member of the royal family. “We never expected Piers Morgan to be the preferred choice, but it seems the people have spoken.”
The poll, which surveyed over 10,000 people, found that 53% of respondents would rather see Piers Morgan as King, compared to just 47% who supported Prince Harry. The reasons behind the surprising results are unclear, but many speculate that Morgan’s outspoken and controversial persona may have won over some voters.
“It’s a clear sign that people are fed up with the same old, same old when it comes to the monarchy,” said one commentator. “Piers Morgan represents a break from tradition, a shake-up of the establishment. It’s like Brexit all over again.”
Reaction to the poll has been mixed, with some expressing outrage and disbelief at the idea of Piers Morgan as King. “This is a joke, right?” tweeted one user. “I’d rather have a goldfish as King than Piers Morgan.”
Others, however, have embraced the idea of a Morgan monarchy. “Piers would make a great King,” said one supporter. “He’s not afraid to speak his mind, and he’s got a lot of experience dealing with difficult people. Plus, he’s a good laugh.”
It remains to be seen whether the YouGov poll will have any real impact on the succession of the British monarchy. But one thing is for sure: the idea of Piers Morgan as King has certainly caused a stir. Whether that stir is positive or negative, however, is up for debate.
