The French daily newspaper "Le Parisien–Today in France" published the results of a poll organized thinking this summer with 15.916 peoples with the following question:
"Would you like the France have a King or a Queen?"

The results are surprising with 52.3% 'No', but  47.7%  'Yes'!


In 2007, a previous poll by the BVA Institute gave the following results:
"Are you favourable or opposed so that the function of Head of the State, as in other European countries, is assumed one day by a King?"

Completely favourable 3%
Rather favourable 14%
Favourable sub-total 17%
Rather opposite 24%
Completely opposite 56%
Sub-total opposite 80%
Donotknow 3%
Total 100

"Can - you to vote with the first turn of the presidential election for a royalist candidate?"

Yes certainly 5%
Yes perhaps 15%
Sub-total yes 20%
Not to in no case 75%
Donotknow 5%
Total 100

That's amazing! 

What explains the sharp increase of support for monarchy?  It would be interesting to see the demographics for the poll.

Good sample size, but was this poll conducted across all of France, or just a part of it?

I suspect that the good reputation of the British monarchy is probably carrying over to other places. And I imagine that the favorable feelings engendered by the wedding of William and Kate a few years back, with its emphasis on traditional patriotism, customs, and especially reaching out to the people and making the ceremonies inclusive and welcoming to the general public is reminding people of other countries of their own lost traditions. People are looking for something more inspiring  than conventional politics  in their national governments.

Exact.Here is the text that accompanied this poll:

"Elizabeth II Jubilee last year or even the abdication of Albert II of Belgium Sunday were the subject of broadcasts live and television magazines in France.
Not to mention the many stories and subjects devoted to the next birth of the first child of Prince William and his wife Kate. Lack of live in monarchy, it is ruling families from other European countries that the French are interested: England, Spain, Belgium, Holland, Monaco, Luxembourg...

The success of emissions that a redevoted to them shows that the French despite their attachment to the Republic are still fond of the news of the Royals. In France,it must indeed go back to 1870 to find the last ruler in the person of Napoleon III, forced to abdicate after the defeat of his armies against the Prussians at Sedan. The last King was Louis Philippe Ier, ousted from the throne by the revolution of 1848."
