BBC Wales – St. David’s Day Poll 2019 (2)

Posted by Gregor Jackson on the 7th March, 2019

ICM Unlimited were commissioned by BBC Wales to carry out the annual St. David’s Day Poll among the general public in Wales.

This poll has been covered on the BBC News website here:

Below is a summary of the key findings of the questions on whether the monarchy should be abolished, whether there should be a new Prince of Wales when Charles becomes King, and the nature of a possible future investiture ceremony.

Key findings

  • Three in five adults in Wales disagree that the monarchy should be abolished (62%), while one in five agree that it should be (18%)
  • Half of adults in Wales agree that there should be a new Prince of Wales when Prince Charles becomes King (50%), compared to less than a quarter who disagree (22%).
  • When it comes to the possibility of an investiture for a possible successor to Prince Charles as Prince of Wales, the most popular outcome is that there is ‘an investiture similar to that Prince Charles had at Caenarfon in 1969’ (41%), while one in five think that a different style of investiture should take place (20%) and three in ten think that there should be no investiture at all (30%).

Further details of the poll, as well as some of the earlier findings, can be found here:

ICM Unlimited interviewed a representative sample of 1,000 adults aged 18+ by telephone between 7-23 February 2019. Interviews were conducted across Wales and the results have been weighted to the profile of all adults in Wales. ICM is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by its rules.
