A new survey carried out by YouGov for the organisation Republic between April 30 and May 2 shows 27 percent of the people polled believe the UK should abolish the monarchy. Out of the 1754 adults in Great Britain polled, 60 percent spoke in favour of keeping the monarchy, while 13 percent said they didn’t know.

These results show a growth in the support for the abolition of the monarchy over the past few years.

Another YouGov poll carried out between October 2 and November 22 2019 on 4870 people showed 19 percent of those surveyed said Britain should, in the future, replace the monarchy with an elected head of state.
