Almost half of British Commonwealth wants to ditch monarchy

Gibraltar Messenger: An example of Prophecy about “The darkening of the ‘Sun’ and the ‘Moon’ not reflecting her light.”

SUN – The Throne of David – (Psalm 89:36) – which is the British Throne. The “Stone of Scone” is Jacob’s Pillar and Israel’s Throne of David. [The Real Coronation Stone].

MOON – Reflects the light of the SUN. The SUN is the British Throne and the “Commonwealth” reflects her light and power (like the moon does to the sun).

A survey has indicated that Canada and Australia would vote to become republics if referendums were held.

Almost half of the overseas countries in which Charles is head of state would vote to become republics if given the opportunity, a new poll has found.

The survey conducted by former Conservative Party deputy chairman Michael Ashcroft suggests that six of the 14 overseas countries within Britain’s Commonwealth realm – including Canada and Australia – would prefer to ditch the monarchy.

Among Australian respondents, 42% were in favor of becoming a republic, with 35% opposing the idea. Canada saw a greater disparity, according to Ashcroft’s data, with 47% pushing to be a republic and just 23% objecting.

The Bahamas, Jamaica, the Solomon Islands, and Antigua and Barbuda would also vote to remove Charles as head of state, the poll suggests.

The reasoning for the results appears varied. Some respondents in Caribbean countries cited past colonialism as the motivation for their answers, while elsewhere people said that they believed becoming a republic would bring tangible benefits. Canada was among four countries
in which polling supported the view that the monarchy is a “racist and colonialist institution and we should have nothing to do with it.”

An Australian respondent told the survey: “Britain is just like a distant memory. If anything, we’re just following in the footsteps of whatever the US is doing.” A Canadian citizen argued that the monarchy is “no longer real to the modern day.”

A separate poll conducted by Ashcroft ahead of Saturday’s coronation of Charles found that support for the monarchy in Britain remains high, but this appears to be in stark contrast to the sentiment beyond the UK’s borders. [The Truth about The British Monarchy]

Of the other countries within the king’s realm, almost all of them had only marginal support for the monarchy. These include New Zealand, Belize, and Papua New Guinea. Only two of the 14 countries surveyed – Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Tuvalu – said that they would
overwhelmingly vote to remain British crown subjects.

Apparently, back in 2022, Charles already said this was all right with him:

Charles tells Commonwealth it’s fine to ditch monarchy and become a republic

2022 June – Prince Charles has told the countries which still have the Queen as Head of State that they can transition to a republic should they so wish. The prince, who is the future Head of the Commonwealth, says the process can happen “calmly and without rancour”. He will address the leaders of all Commonwealth countries at the CHOGM summit – the Commonwealth Heads Of Government Meeting – in Kigali. There are 54 nations in the Commonwealth but there are 14 countries outside the UK which are Commonwealth Realms – where the British Monarch remains the Head of State.

Last year, Barbados replaced the Queen with a president as it chose to become a republic. The Jamaican Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, recently told Prince William and Kate on their Caribbean tour that he wanted his country to go the same way. Australia has recently elected a prime minister, Anthony Albanese, who has expressed a wish to become a republic. Prince Charles, who is representing the Queen at the summit in Rwanda, will tell other Commonwealth leaders: “The benefit of long life brings me the experience that arrangements such as these can change, calmly and without rancour.” Charles was at the transition ceremony in Barbados in November last year when the Queen was replaced with a president at a midnight ceremony.

Those Realms include Australia, New Zealand, Belize, Jamaica and Canada. The Prince of Wales will tell the Opening Ceremony of the CHOGM summit in Rwanda: “I want to say clearly, as I have said before, that each member’s constitutional arrangement, as republic or monarchy, is purely a matter for each member country to decide.” The heir to the throne has expressed similar sentiments before but it is the timing which is crucial, given the increasing desire from some countries for a change in their constitutional arrangements with the UK.
