Republicans insist Coronation protest won’t ‘antagonise’ anyone
Imogen said: “We’ll add some fun things like songs and chants and stuff like that, but nothing unusual. We’ll join Republic in London.”
They added: “We’re not going there to antagonise. In terms of getting arrested, who knows what the police will do and we saw people getting arrested for holding up blank signs around the Queen’s funeral.
“We’re still going to be there. We’re going to make sure everyone knows what to do in case of arrest, but we’re not definitely not doing anything to purposefully get arrested or put ourselves in that position.
“We’re trying to make it as much fun as possible to be there, I’m not there to tell everyone else who’s there that they’re a bad person for going to the Coronation.”
The statement by No More Royals of their intent for a loud, but peaceful, and fun protest comes days after fellow protest groups Just Stop Oil and Extinction Rebellion caused disruption for civilians and sports stars around the country.
In London, Just Stop Oil has spent the past few days blocking roads and disrupting the capital’s infrastructure. They have blocked Waterloo Bridge and some of London’s busiest arteries including Charing Cross, Borough High Street, and Trafalgar Square.
At 8.45 am the police said they had ordered protesters on Waterloo Bridge “to move out of the road as their slow walk from the Strand was causing severe and deliberate disruption to those going about their daily business”.
Days earlier, another protester had invaded the World Snooker Championship and covered one of the tables in a bright orange powder in a bid to raise awareness of their organisation’s cause.
No More Royal and Republic’s approach is much less disruptive, as the group blend in among the crowds, making them harder to spot.

Furthermore, the younger respondents were, the more apathetic they were to the idea of a monarchy. Around 78 percent of young respondents said they were “not interested” in the Royal Family as it entered a new Carolean Era.
Only 32 percent of 18–24-year-olds supported the monarchy while 38 percent said they would prefer an elected head of state, and 30 percent said they didn’t know.
These figures could boost No More Royal’s hope of a future where Britain doesn’t have a monarchy.
Launched earlier this year, the group is mainly made up of members and campaigners are either Generation Z or young millennials who want to see a change in the structure of Britain where the Royal Family has no throne to sit on.
