Royal Family News – Republic Wants To Abolish The Monarchy
Graham Smith told Express.co.uk that in the aftermath of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s shameless airing of dirty royal laundry to Oprah Winfrey, the Royal Family has become a polarizing issue.
He said, “If nothing else I am always told that the monarchy unites the country. But it has become a deeply divisive issue more so than ever before, as we are seeing from the polls the country is divided on every question there is on the monarchy. Usually divided according to age and so on.”

He added, “There has been a big shift in polling but it is too early to see whether that is going to last.”
Before the jaw-dropping tell-all, republicanism in the UK was polled at around 20 percent.
But royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams does not agree with Republic’s campaign to abolish the monarchy. Fitzwillaims told Express.co.uk, “This is not an accurate summary of the current standing of the royal family, which according to YouGov is roughly where it has usually been, with only around 20 percent for republicanism, which is its usual level of support.”
A March 2021 poll revealed that the British public did not approve of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s shameless tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
But their friend Omid Scobie said during his HeirPod podcast that the results of the UK poll mirrored the public push back against some of the claims made by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry against the Royal Family.

Royal Family News – Should The Monarchy Be Abolished?
Scobie Doo said, “We certainly saw with a YouGov direct poll with 2,000-3,000 adults, they found that 40 percent of Americans believed it was appropriate to take part in the interview and be that candid.”
“The remaining figure was the majority of people saying I don’t care and then others saying it was inappropriate. “This is very different from the UK where 47 percent of those polled said that it was inappropriate for the couple to share their story despite what had come out from the interview.”
Sobie Doo deduced, “I guess this kind of mirrors the public push back we have seen against what are some very big claims against the Royal Family. Many people seemingly want to bury their heads in the sand and hope that it goes away. I imagine that certain family members are in the same position as that.”
