Over a third of Britons want abolition with Charles as King, putting the Royal Family on the verge of collapse.
According to a new poll, a third of people believe the monarchy is unfit for purpose and would support its removal after the Queen dies.
A total of 34% of those polled said they would prefer the monarchy to be abolished rather than supporting Charles’ leadership. This result reveals a split in British support and a lack of enthusiasm for the Royal Family’s reign to continue.
While public support for the monarchy remains strong, a poll conducted for the New Statesman by Redfield and Wilton Strategies indicated a split among the public, particularly in light of the Royal Family’s recent controversies.
The results of the poll revealed a lack of passion and interest in the institution, with many respondents expressing apathy and indifference towards the royals and their destiny.
While 5% indicated they had no opinion on whether the monarchy should be abolished, only 18% stated they would support or oppose it.
After Elizabeth II’s reign ends and Charles, The Prince of Wales, ascends to the throne, a majority of 54 percent of people say they want the Royal Family to continue with Charles as its leader.
Thirty percent stated they would strongly support it, indicating that certain members of the British public have faith in a new reigning king.
Those who support the monarchy’s abolition when the Queen’s reign expires were outnumbered as well, with 42% of respondents stating they would oppose it.
More than half of those polled stated they would support the monarchy’s continuation once Queen Elizabeth II’s reign expires, indicating that the monarchy is popular in Britain as a whole and that there is hope for Charles.
Following Charles’ reign, Prince William and his three children, George, Charlotte, and Louis, would ascend to the throne. Following them would be Prince Harry and his son Archie.
Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, Harry and Meghan’s second child, was born in June, making her the ninth in line to the British throne. She is Queen Elizabeth II’s tenth great-grandchild.
The survey was conducted in response to the uproar surrounding Meghan Markle and Prince Harry following an Oprah Winfrey interview in which Meghan stated Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, made a mistake. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
