U.S. & World

TAMPA, FL (WFLA) – A recent poll conducted in Britain showed most folks don’t care about the upcoming royal wedding. 

Even though, people around the globe will make it a point to watch the historic event. 

According to Reuters, the poll was commissioned by anti-monarchist pressure group Republic, and found 66 percent of Brits are not interested in the event.

60 percent of Brits even said they plan to have a normal weekend.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will wed at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle with more than 5,000 media staff and around 100,000 spectators expected to flock in the town.

The poll showed 57 percent believed the royal family should pay not only for the wedding but also for the cost of police.

But the monarchy isn’t going anywhere any time soon. 

An opinion poll showed most Brits are in favor of the monarchy continuing in Britain.

And another poll found 58 percent of respondents thought the royal wedding and the recent birth of Prince Louis to Prince William and his wife Kate made Britain proud.
