British royal family drama pushes Australians to ‘embrace republic’
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s feud with the British royal family appears to be urging Australians to vote for a republic, a recent poll has found.
Resolve Strategic conducted a poll for the Sydney Morning Herald that found 39 per cent of voters were in favor of an Australian republic, up from 26 per cent before the death of Queen Elizabeth II last September.
Previously, 37 percent of voters opposed the constitutional amendment, but that number has fallen to 31 percent.
Prince Harry detailed his physical altercations between himself and Prince William in his memoir, Spare. Among other allegations, Prince Harry also claimed that he and Meghan Markle were bullied in the royal circle.
In addition, the poll also found that 93 percent of voters are aware of the allegations Prince Harry has made against the royal family.
