(ANSA) – Rome, May 15 – After protests over the British colonial past in the Caribbean, the whistle is now blowing at Wembley Stadium. Three weeks after the Platinum Jubilee, a celebration of Elizabeth II’s seventy years on the throne that should unify the kingdom surrounding her longtime monarch, a new tile falls on the royal home and Prince William of England.
In Liverpool’s FA Cup final against Chelsea last night, Queen Elizabeth’s grandson was targeted by fans who booed him.
Shortly before it touched on the hymn ‘God Save the Queen’ instead, which was even ridiculed by fans.
The controversy against the Duke of Cambridge, who is also the president of the Football Association, was not at all liked by many exponents in the political world, beginning with the chamber’s speaker who condemned him. According to media reconstructions, William was booed during a choir re-interpreted hymn ‘Abide with Me’ and again when the prince was introduced to the crowd and started shaking hands with the players. But the noise reached its peak during the national anthem, even as some fans made obscene gestures.
Meanwhile, according to a new survey – writes The Guardian – less than half (45%) of people in Scotland say they support the monarchy. Around six in 10 people across Britain want to keep it for the foreseeable future, while only a quarter believe the end of Queen’s rule may be the right time for Britain to become a republic. However, an overwhelming majority, around 85%, predict that Britain will still have a monarchy in a decade. (handle).
