The recent royal wedding revealed a strong interest in the lives of the British royal family among Irish citizens.

Over four in ten Irish adults say they watched the wedding, with something of a gender divide evident in the audience, and an older bias as well:

Not surprisingly, the wedding's coverage has left most Irish people predisposed towards a visit from the new royal couple:

Does this mean that our republic has turned royalist? Apparently not: only 1 in 10 Irish people would like Ireland to have its own royal family like several other European countries (though 2 in 10 18-24 year olds would like an Irish royal family):

Key Takeaway: the Irish people are just as interested in the lives (and weddings) of the British royal family as many others around the world, but they're quite happy to live in a republic, for now.
