30 million in the UK and 30 million in the US is a different representation of the population though.
In the UK there's some 63 million people, so 30 million would be just under 50% of the population. In the US, there's some 317 million people, so 30 million is closer to 10% of the population - for it to be closer to half they'd have to have some 160 million royalists.
