British support for keeping the monarchy remains high, with 76% favouring their country keeping the current arrangement – compared to 17% preferring a republic.
Three-quarters of the public (75%) believe the monarchy has an important role to play in the future of Britain and most do not think the Queen should retire, despite turning 90. More than two-thirds (70%) believe she should remain Queen.
On the other hand, our survey in Canada finds that a slim majority (54%) of Canadians agree that, given the Queen’s age, she should abdicate to the next-in-line to the throne. However, support for the monarchy remains fairly strong with 55% of Canadians backing continued ties between their country and the monarchy after the Queen’s reign ends.
