Prince William and Kate Middleton will face a generational gap to ensure the monarchy’s survival, experts have claimed.
According to royal observers, the future of the royal family is far from secure due to the growing anti-monarchy feeling.
Television correspondent James Longman also suggested that the Cambridges could play an important role in attracting the public.
What do commentators say about the future of the monarchy?
In a report for Good Morning America, Mr. Longman noted that the royals are still very popular.
He said one in five people support the UK as a republican state.

However, Tiwalolu Adebayo believes attitudes could change quickly.
She suggested that this could also be sped up due to a “generational gap” in viewing the royals.
“Trust must be won” by Prince William and Kate Middleton
Ms. Adebayo said, “I think there will be an intense period of questioning the royal family after the queen’s death.
“The anti-monarchist sentiment in this country is growing, especially among the younger generation.
The anti-monarchist mood in this country is growing.
“The Queen’s successor will have to do a lot of hard work to win the trust of the British people.”
“Change is important”
Another journalist warned the royals have to be seen to fit in with the times.
Alistair Bruce intervened: “The monarchy is constantly changing – it has to reinvent itself in order to survive.”
And Mr Longman believes that the next generation of royals beyond the heir to the throne, Prince Charles, will be the key to this process.

He pondered, “According to surveys, one in five would abolish the monarchy, which means they are still very popular even after the Oprah interview with Meghan and Harry.
“But there’s a generation gap and that’s why so much still rests on Will and Kate’s shoulders.”
These thoughts have been echoed by radio experts who singled out Kate Middleton as a potentially crucial component.
Journalist Duncan Larcombe said during an appearance on talkRADIO: “Kate has played a central role in this since they got married.
“You are there to fulfill a destiny and to support the Queen and Prince Charles.
“William gets the duty and tries to fill that role.”
