Sorry that I should have make myself way more clear on whether I was talking about Australia or UK.

I found a statistic from the Guardian (Left-leaning, Republican, anti-monarchy), which was conducted on November 2018 in Australia. It is on the bottom of the page.

"The Newspoll also found support for a republic has fallen to a 25-year low after last month’s royal visit to Australia by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The poll – of 1,802 voters – has measured a huge drop in support for a republic since April, with just 40% of Australians saying they are in favour of cutting ties with the British monarchy, down from 50% seven months ago.

At the same time, the number of Australians saying they’re against a republic has jumped from 41% to 48%, marking the first time since the republican referendum in 1999 that the number of voters in favour of the monarchy has overwhelmed those against it. The number of people uncommitted to a republic has risen from 9% to 12%.

But support for a republic is still strongest among younger Australians. Forty-five per cent of 18- to 34-year-olds are in favour, compared with 43% of 34- to 49-year-olds and 36% of over-50s.

Just 39% of 18- to 34-year-olds are against a republic, rising to 44% of 35- to 49-year-olds and 55% for over-50s."

I then found another poll published on the Sunday Telegraph (right-leaning, perhaps pro-constitutional monarch??). Unfortunately, I run out of my free trial, but the headline reads "Poll finds majority want an Australian head of state"
