Queen Elizabeth won people’s trust, though she promoted the anti-monarchy group, Republic. Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-living monarch in the world and famous for overcoming the issues despite her old age.
Among her supporters, there is an anti-monarchy group that has launched a petition to end the monarchy. They called for the abolishment of the monarchy and want to replace it with the elected and democratic head of state.
“The monarchy is a broken institution. Ahead of the state that’s chosen by us could represent our hopes and aspirations – and help us keep politicians in check,” their official website says. Queen Elizabeth II remains the backbone of the country said a royal commentator.
As per Darren Grimes, the petition failed to affect Her Majesty. Queen Elizabeth II scored a higher approval rating ahead of her jubilee next year, said micky.com.au. He added public would support their “selfless and devoted Monarch.
“After Megxit and the passing of the late and great Duke of Edinburgh, the Royal Family’s approval ratings are up. So many feel for Her Majesty The Queen,” he said, per the Express. “Most will back this UK-wide celebration of our selfless and devoted Monarch.”
The Queen will celebrate her Platinum Jubilee in 2022 and become the first British monarch of history to reach the milestone. The celebration will last from June 2 to 5. A concert will be, reportedly, held at Buckingham Palace while other events, including pageants, street parties, and horse racing among others.
However, Graham Smith, the head of Republic, saw the occasion as disturbing and unsafe while observing the pandemic.
“The royals do little for Britain, yet they demand a lot. As we put the Covid crisis behind us next year, national celebrations should be centered on the ordinary people who make this country great,” he said.
He added that reaching 70 years in public is not something they should celebrate. Instead, he and the organization see it as something not beneficial to Britain. As Queen Elizabeth reaches that point, the group believes that they near to finally abolishing the monarchy.
