image for Two-thirds of Brits not interested in royal wedding: poll

The poll, commissioned by anti-monarchist pressure group Republic, found that 66 percent of Britons are not interested in the event, with 60 percent of Britons planning to have a normal weekend.

Harry and Markle are set to marry at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle with more than 5,000 media staff and around 100,000 well-wishers expected to descend on the market town.

The poll by polling firm YouGov showed that 57 percent of respondents believed the royal family should pay not only for the wedding but also for the costs of police.

An opinion poll published last week showed that most Britons are in favor of the monarchy continuing in Britain.

The YouGov survey suggested that the popularity of the royal family is contingent on the personalities of its members.

While 60 percent of respondents say they like Queen Elizabeth, her son Charles is far less popular.

“This YouGov poll shows a very clear picture of a nation disinterested and apathetic about the royal family,” Graham Smith, chief executive of Republic, said. »
