[英여왕 서거] Republicans “opportunity to abolish the monarchy”… Prepare to raise your voice

British republicans are preparing to raise their voices as they see the succession of Charles III as an opportunity to reinforce their claim to the end of the monarchy, The Guardian reported on the 10th (local time).

According to the Guardian, many republicans have been unable to express their views easily because of the national mourning after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, but republican groups argue that now is not the time to panic.

Graham Smith, spokesman for Republic, a political movement group that insists that the people elect a head of state, pointed out, “People who are pro-republicans speak carefully so as not to provoke their surroundings, but the royal family is also a subject of discussion as a public institution.” .

The mood of republicanism, or abolition of the monarchy, will subside a lot before and after the Queen’s funeral, but will soon be revived as new levels of discussion about the future of the royal family begin, Smith said.

In particular, he pointed out that although the public’s respect for Queen Elizabeth suppressed republicanism, the new King Charles III did not inherit this respect and weight.

After the announcement of Queen Elizabeth’s death, the group said support for “Republic” is also soaring amid an atmosphere in which the entire nation seems to be grieving.

“The number of new members is also increasing significantly,” Smith said.

Republicans have admitted that there will be no chance of abolition of the monarchy while Queen Elizabeth is alive.

However, Smith’s spokesman said: “King Charles’ accession has created a completely different situation,” he said.

In a poll conducted ahead of the Queen’s 70th anniversary of the Queen’s accession this year, support for the monarchy was quite high at 62%, but a marked drop compared to 73% ten years ago.
