Most Britons have very little interest in the Coronation according to poll

A poll has has shown that most Britons don’t care much or at all about the Coronation of King Charles.

The results of the poll undertaken by YouGov showed widespread apathy in the event to be held next month.

When asked how much do you care about the forthcoming coronation of King Charles recipients answered:

A great deal: 9%
A fair amount: 24%
Not very much: 35%
Not at all: 29%
(YouGov surveyed 3070 GB adults in a poll which conducted on April 13, 2023)

The result of the poll comes as just four private street parties have been registered in Wales for the Coronation weekend.

The UK Government has released a map tracking all the Coronation events taking place throughout the UK.

The map, created by the department for culture, media and sport (DCMS), allows the organisers of lunches, picnics, street parties and other events to mark King Charles being crowned.

According to the Government’s map, 1,188 public events/opportunities and 295 street parties or private events have been shared so far.

However, only four of those appear to be private street parties in Wales, with listings appearing on the map for Merthyr Tydfil, Neath Port Talbot and two in Carmarthenshire.

Cambrian News has reported that Ceredigion County Council did not receive any applications from within the county for street parties to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III.

Private street parties have to be registered with local councils to allow the blocking off of streets during the Coronation weekend of May 5-8.

One thing assured, with wall to wall TV coverage there will be nothing worth watching. Good day to go out for a long hike, or dig a garden, cut hedges, plenty of alternatives without getting too emotional about the whole panto thing.

If support is so low why are we allowing silly amounts of money to be spent on privileged rich people dressing up like peacocks to parade about in a coronation that no one wants? Are we stupid? Let’s stop this minority who have access to our money to spend as they wish without objection.

Great excuse to get an extra day in my caravan, avoid the telly, radio and everything else to do with this totally unnecessary and outdated event. Spend the money on causes that need it

I’m not surprised that Britons are not interested. But what of Angles, Saxons and Jutes?

Oh come now, we can’t be confusing our fellow citizens by explaining to them that Britons, in a cultural sense, means The people of Wales. All are geographically British, but Culturally….yeah, that’s very much belonging to the People of Wales. With Wales founded by Britons, England founded by Saxons, and Scotland founded by Scoti.

The yougov survey said that Wales was the most enthusiastic nation in the sample. Bit weird Nation.Cymru didn’t mention this in the article anywhere

As I understand it, yougov lump us in with the West Midlands, which has a larger population than Wales, and therefore skews the figures for what people think here. In reality, we simply don’t know what proportion of people in Wales are excited by the coronation. However, four street parties suggests not many!! 👍

Nope. Wales is polled in it’s own right.

“Britons”? And what exactly does that mean? You can’t have three different nations founded with different origins all claim the same identity. In a cultural sense, Britons, or British can only be applied to the people of Wales. When applied to England or Scotland, it’s only in a Geographical sense as their countries are also on the island of Britain, but were founded by Non-Britons. A distinction that is vital, but often ignored or Forgotten about.

Judging by the number of comments by the usual royal haters on here it seems to me that MOST republicans in Wales have a great interest in King Charles Coronation lol

We do. Because what he represents is an affront to us, he undermines who we are as an Englishman formerly recognised as the Prince of Wales (now his balding English football fan son). We want this sh$$ to end.

The royal haters! As if they are the only royalty in the world huh? The way they are talked about, you’d believe exactly that. They are Vampires in every regard. They, and those that came before them have used Britain to fufill their Germanic agenda to make people believe The Anglo English are British. When it is in fact the people of Wales and their monarchs who were hunted to extinction who are, and Were British. They are foreign!!! Always have been, and always will be.

Not sure about the term ‘Haters’. The Uk Royals are simply the folk who sit at the top if the corrupt pyramid of the avaricious UK rich elite. For me, at least, the key thing is to see that pyramid come crahing down and the roll out of some economic and social equlity for the ordinary people of the country. If the Uk Royals end up finding gainful employment that allows them to make use of their skills then good for them. Unfortunately, the evidence I have read suggest that skills are a bit short for many of them. However,… Read more »

Last legitimate British King: Iestyn Ap Gwrgan. Last Monarch who had the slightest legitimacy connected to those: Owain Glyndwr. No monarch there after has had any legitimacy. Especially over Wales!

No surprise there? £100 million of tax payers money could have saved hundreds of lives through the NHS. Instead a Royal family who gained their wealth through wars, slavery and invading other sovereign countries and stealing their resources are now stealing from their own people in a time of great need. The guy that threw the egg wants to feel lucky he’s not in the tower of London awaiting execution? On that basis we must be making some headway to removing the Windsor’s for good?

Come the day the London media will be telling us that “the whole country” is celebrating, and we will hear ad nauseum about “the Prince and Princess of Wales”.
