For the 2021 Statehood Day of the Republic of Serbia, we wanted to present to the public the support for the monarchy and the Royal family.
The restoration of the parliamentary monarchy in Serbia is supported by 25.2% of citizens, while 20.3% are against. Others are neutral or have no attitude. 39.5% have a positive opinion of the Royal family of Serbia, while 11.5% have a negative opinion.
1192 respondents participated in this research, and the research was conducted on a nationally representative multi-stratified research conducted with the CAWI (online) technique.
The last national representative survey, which was transmitted by all important domestic media and major world media, and which we did on this topic, was in 2013. Compared to 2013, the number of those who would support, but also those who would not, decreased. From 39.2% it fell to 25.2% supporters and from 32.3% who are against to 20.3%. So this “loss” went to neutral ones towards the idea.
It seems like, since then, voters have understood the complexity, reality and possibility of such an idea due to the emergence of a purely royalist political organization that almost entered the Serbian Parliament.
However, the restoration of the parliamentary monarchy is not on the list of priorities for voters, and without the direct and strong support of Crown Prince Alexander II and his sons, voters were not fully motivated or offered a holistic political program to support this idea.
Today, it seems that support is now clearer and better profiled than it was in 2013.
