Almost half of the countries where Charles III was king want to get rid of him

Charles III is about to be officially crowned as the new King of England, the oldest heir to the British throne. But almost half of the nations he will rule seem to want to get rid of the monarchy. Indeed, the King of England is not only the monarch of the United Kingdom and the head of the Anglican church, but also the head of state of the 15 Commonwealth kingdoms. But six of them want to leave the crown to become a republic.

According to a poll by Lord Ashcroft, as The Times reports. Canada, Australia, the Bahamas, Jamaica, the Solomon Islands, and Antigua and Barbuda will vote in favor of becoming republics if a referendum is held tomorrow. Most countries in government still want to remain constitutional monarchies, with the nation most strongly committed to the idea of ​​having a king (or queen), even more so than England, the tiny Pacific island of Tuvalu. With a population of 11,000 and an area of ​​just 10 square miles, the country will vote 26% to 71% to maintain a constitutional monarchy. In the UK, this ratio stands at 57% in favor and 22% against. The strongest republican state is the Solomon Islands, another Pacific nation, with 59 percent saying they would choose to amend its constitution to abolish the monarchy.

The poll company’s report divided voters from 15 countries into five groups: staunch royalists, traditional monarchists, neutral pragmatists, modern republicans, and angry abolitionists. Among them, “angry abolitionists” make up the largest group, representing 25% of the citizens of the Commonwealth countries. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, sympathetic to modern republicans, show no favors to royalty, including Henry and Meghan. Convinced royalists, on the other hand, represent 23% of the population and believe that the monarchy is an asset and in some cases the main source of stability in their country. In staunch Tuvalu, 72% of voters said the monarchy brought stability to the country, and 75% said the King could unite voters from all factions.
