Unless proven otherwise, Charles III is not of the same rank as his mother. Christian Burke, Vice President of Leisure, points out that he does not have his things.

The company’s latest survey is clear: The majority of Quebecers surveyed expect the Queen’s eldest son to be “of lower quality” than her.

“We can conclude that Elizabeth has proven to be a good sovereign for them and that Charles has a hill to climb to equal it,” adds Marc Chevrier, a professor of political science at the University of Quebec in Montreal, after seeing the survey results.

It must be said that even in English Canada, the new 73-year-old king has never aroused feelings.

When Charles, then a prince, visited the country in 2009 with his wife Camilla, 2% of Canadians thought they would make for “strong” monarchs, according to a Leger poll at the time.

Mr. Burke recalls that his extramarital affair with Camilla and his stormy divorce to Mrs. Dee shortly before his death are certainly not unrelated.


However, the survey reveals that 15% of respondents are still associated with the monarchy, which rises to 19% among women. It was 6% last year, all genders combined.

“People may have had some pricks in their hearts. In general, we reject the establishment, but the one we liked, ”advs. pollster Christian Burke.

As evidence of this, two out of three Quebecers agreed that the government should lower their flags on the occasion of Elizabeth II’s death.

However, despite this respect for the monarch, the majority of French speakers (83%) and Anglophones (54%) think the monarchy is “useless”.

Mr Burke sees this as a sign that some Commonwealth countries, including ours, could use it to call into question their commitment to the British Crown, once the national mourning is over.

Disputes in recent years about the representatives of the Queen in Canada, in the person of the governor-general, the image did not help; Think the extravagant expenses of Lise Thibault, the toxic work climate in Julie Payette’s office, or the monolingual Marie Simon.
