Why do you want to change the British constitution? Unless he pre-deceases his mother, Charles will be King.
Camilla will also be Queen unless they change the law or issue LP.
The monarch is not and never will be based on a popularity contest.

I take it that you don't mind if the UK becomes a republic? Because when you start deciding who will be King and Queen based on a popularity contest the republicans will argue there is no point in monarchy in more.

What has William done, at age 25, that you think qualifies him more for the role of King than his father?

When Charles was aged 25 people were calling for the Queen to abdicate so that Charles could be king because of the work he was doing and to get him into the job at a young age. He had done far more royal work at that age than William has done, and he had his degree and had become an officer in the navy. William hasn't proven himself as a royal yet as he does so little in the way of official engagements. He just seems a big party boy and frankly I doubt if he is up to the job at all as his commitment to royal duties seems so slack when compared to his father at the same age. The fact that a decision was made not to push him is all well and good but it seems to be that he doesn't actually want to do anything. Harry is doing more from what I can see.

The more I see and read of William and Harry the less I think the monarchy has to look forward to. Their continual desire to be 'normal' seems to be an excuse to run away from their heritage rather than embrace it as their father has done throughout his life.

I think alot of people don't want Charles to ascend the throne because they don't want to see Camilla become queen which is very unfair.

I think it's mainly the increase in Republican feeling which is nothing to do with any one individual, more modernisation.

I can't imagine Great Britain as a republic government the movie V for Vendetta showed England as a republic or communist nation.
