For Monarchy: Marriage Boosts Popularity, Divorce Makes It Plummet

October 14, 2013

According to Hello! Magazine:

The British Social Attitudes survey…found that…in 2012 only 5% of people said that they thought the monarchy should be abolished…while 45% of people said that they felt it is “very important” that Britain continues to have a monarchy.

The positive result in 2012 came six years after the figure dropped to 27% in 2006 and 32% in 1994, two years before Prince Charles and Prince Andrew divorced their respective wives Diana and Sarah.

Similarly to 1983, many have attributed public opinion to royal weddings and the 2012 figure was influenced by Prince William’s marriage to Kate Middleton.
