Support in the UK for the monarchy rises after Queen’s funeral
Support for the monarchy has increased in the United Kingdom following the Queen’s funeral, a new poll has found.
Almost half of those polled by Ipsos on Tuesday and Wednesday said Britain would be worse if the monarchy was abolished while less than a quarter said the country would be improved as a republic.
The poll of 1000 adults found 47 per cent saying the UK would be worse without a monarch, up from 42 per cent who said the same shortly after the Platinum Jubilee in June.
Only 22 per cent said abolishing the monarchy would make the country better, the same proportion as in February 2022 and down slightly from 23 per cent in June.
