"What are the sentiments of those who reside there?"

Well, for a start he's taking about Britons and not just the English - this is rather important. I'd rather hope that republican sentiment might be growing here in the UK, but unfortunately the vast majority of the population seems to enjoy being ruled by a load of inbreds and spongers who know sod all about the people they 'rule'. In fact, I find it interesting that people wanting to live in the UK have to swear an oath of allegiance to the Queen. Bollocks to that - I wouldn't give the old girl the steam off me piss (not personal to her, but to any king or queen). I certainly would pledge my allegiance, but never because someone tells me I have to, and never to people born into wealth and privilege earnt off the backs or ordinary people.

"Give the royals reasonable incomes and let them go."

Why? They're already massively rich and they should be able to subsist on their own. One thing they don't need is any more of our money. Just let them grow and grow up.
