People in Reading still back the monarchy, new research on attitudes towards the Royal Family across Great Britain shows.

A survey of 21,000 people carried out by the publisher UnHerd in association with the pollster FocalData found support for the monarchy was still high across most of the country.

Participants were asked how much they agreed with the statement "I am a strong supporter of the continued reign of the Royal Family".

The responses were then analysed to create a model for each constituency, based on the characteristics of people living there, including age, voting record and employment status.

There are two parliamentary constituencies that are in or cross over into Reading – Reading West and Reading East.

Of the two constituencies that are in or cross over into Reading, the most pro-monarchy was Reading West – 55 per cent support the monarchy, compared to 19% who don’t, with the rest undecided.

Of these, 27 per cent strongly agree with the statement, while 28 per cent said they simply agree.

The constituencies were ranked based on how many agree versus disagree, with the top ranking being the most pro-monarchist.

Reading West placed 281st out of 632 constituencies – not including the 18 constituencies in Northern Ireland.

In Reading East meanwhile just 52 per cent of people were pro-Crown, compared to 23 per cent who were not – placing it at 444th nationwide.

Across Britain as a whole, 48 per cent of people support the monarchy, 25 per cent do not, and 28 per cent are not sure.

Old Bexley and Sidcup, in London, was the most supportive, with both the highest agreement (68 per cent) and the lowest disagreement (12 per cent).

Just three constituencies – Liverpool Riverside, Manchester Central and Glasgow Central – were home to more republicans than royalists.

Suburban and rural areas dominated the top spots, while all of the 10 least monarchist areas were in major cities.

Paul Embery, from UnHerd, said the results demonstrated a widening cultural schism between cities and the rest of the country, which pre-dates the turmoil caused by Brexit.

He said: “Though ostensibly about the Royal Family, the poll results highlight something more profound about our country.

“They illustrate the extent to which we have tipped into a very real cultural war, with competing values and priorities vying for ascendancy.

“Much of our political discourse and debate must now be seen through this prism. We had better get used to it.”
