"It's been over 100 years since the last Welsh banknotes were in circulation and this is as good a reason as any to bring it back."
More than half of those questioned (53%) favoured William's image on the commemorative banknote, putting him above Welsh celebrities like Shirley Bassey 12%, Katherine Jenkins 7%, Ryan Giggs 7%, Charlotte Church 5% and Tom Jones 2%.
