Young Australians Know the Difference Between a Royal Visit and a Republic Vote

Independent research confirms young Australians know the difference between enjoying a royal visit and voting for an Australian republic.

In every age group, more people agree that Australia should become a republic with an Australian as head of state than disagree.

And opposition to a republic is weakest among young people.  

Just 17 per cent of Aussies 18-24 years old and 15 per cent of Aussies 25-34 are opposed to a republic. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very welcome visitors - and the Invictus Games will be a very inspiring occasion for Australians.

Australians of all ages know the difference between this wonderful event and the questions of our nation's identity and future.
