The Queen is reportedly heartbroken after a new poll showed that just 58% of the British public want to keep the monarchy.
After a more-than-public appearance filled weekend from Her Majesty at the Platinum Jubilee Horse Show at Windsor this weekend, saw a rise of those against the monarchy come out in force.
The poll was started by the Campaign to Abolish the Monarchy group.
A spokesman said: “A new monarchy poll has found only 58% of Britons want to keep the monarchy for the foreseeable future.
“That may be the lowest level of support ever found.
“It's a 22-point drop in just 10 years – the monarchy is on the way out; it should end with Elizabeth.”
And Paul Harwood, a member of the group, said: “From Statistica, it's an even starker picture if you break it down by age.
“Young people are increasingly disinterested in the monarchy and supportive of an elected Head of State.
“That trend is almost certain to continue.”
According to a report in the Daily Express, the new poll has caused “heartbreak” to the Queen.
It was a pretty low weekend already for the public's response to her, as Liverpool fans were lambasted by certain sections of the public for booing her grandson Prince William and the national anthem before the club's FA Cup final win against Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday (May 14).
The Leader of the House of Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle said: “I utterly condemn any fans who booed Prince William at Wembley today.
"The FA Cup final should be an occasion when we come together as a country.
“It should not be ruined by a minority of fans' totally shameful behaviour. In this year of all years – the Queen's Platinum Jubilee – this is dreadful.”
Buckingham Palace has been contacted for comment.
