Will Britain's monarchy survive the Queen's death?

STORY: "All bets are off as to where public opinion is going to go," said Graham Smith, chief executive of anti-monarchy group Republic told Reuters.

He said while only an act of parliament would be needed to end the monarchy, it was highly likely there would have to be a referendum first.

Kehinde Andrews, a professor of Black Studies at Birmingham City University, said the royal family will be fine even after the Queen's death.

"The institution of the royal family is very, very solid," he added.
