I think the antimonarchist sentiment at least in Canada largely stemmed from the possibility of Charles being king. His reign will be relatively brief if it occurs at all. William is more popular.
"Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs."
Charles James Napier
