British Monarchy Slipping in Popularity

Despite the many public and charitable works and the impending Diamond Jubilee, Britain’s House of Windsor continues to dip in popular appeal. Recent polls revealed, as reported by Time, that the British “are more disillusioned with their ruling family than previously thought, with only 14% of the public claiming to be ‘very interested’ in the Jubilee. The number of people believing the country would be worse off without the royals also fell from 63% last year to 51%. The polls also reveal that the number of people replying ‘don’t know’ to the question of whether the country would be better or worse off without the monarchy has shot up from 11% to 28% this year.”
