In the wake of Queen Elizabeth II's passing and King Charles III's ascension, Britain's monarchy stands at a crossroads.

While King Charles expresses gratitude for the public's support, his reign is marked by dwindling popularity and debates about the monarchy's future.

After a remarkable 70-year reign, Queen Elizabeth left a lasting legacy, making it a daunting task for Charles to step into her shoes.

Although he has received praise for his efforts, it hasn't been without challenges.

I think it's a very difficult role to play after the queen, and a difficult job in the first place, so I think he's done a good job," remarked one observer.

Yet, there have been incidents of anti-royal sentiment, with one man even hurling eggs at the king, and protests during Charles' coronation.

Dozens were arrested during these demonstrations, including Matt Turnbull, a vocal advocate for a republican system, advocating for a president as the head of state instead of a monarch.

If we're going to give one person and their surrounding family all that power and all that splendor, should we not get a say in who that family is?" Turnbull questioned.

Public opinion reflects a decline in support for the monarchy, with a recent survey revealing a 5% drop in approval, especially among those aged 18 to 24 who prefer an elected head of state.

"Five points may seem small, but that's five points in a year," Turnbull observed. "What does five points in five years look like?"
