Two recent polls revealed that Queen Elizabeth II should stay out of British politics, particularly Brexit. Here's what people say about the monarch being involved in this matter.

A survey by pollster ComRes asked 2,011 participants a question whether they agree or disagree that Queen Elizabeth should remain above politics and not get involved in Brexit. The collected data was between August 9 to 11, and the age ranges from 18 to 24, and up to 55 and above.

The result revealed that 62 percent of the participants believed Her Majesty should stay out of Brexit, while 19 percent said the monarch should have some involvement, and another 19 percent neither agreed nor disagreed.

Another poll conducted by Express asked 3,247 readers whether or not Queen Elizabeth should get involved in Brexit. The result showed that 2,119 said the monarch shouldn't get involved, 1,042 believed she should get involved, and 86 said they didn't know.

That means 66 percent of the outlet's readers agreed Her Majesty should stay out of the Brexit process, 32 percent agreed she should have an involvement, and only 2 percent were uncertain on what to answer.

Readers also voiced out their concerns, with some claiming the monarch is a "secret Brexit supporter." Another one said Queen Elizabeth had done a great job for the country throughout her reign, but she must not fall at the "last hurdle." One particular reader added it's not only the Queen's government, but it's also a duty being one of the three guardians of British democracy.

In a related report, Her Majesty reportedly broke a "most-sacred" rule for the first time in her 67 years as a monarch. An "impeccable royal source" claims Queen Elizabeth made an opinion regarding Brexit, though she reportedly knew her statement could be made public.

The source also said the monarch was allegedly disappointed in the current political class, as well as its inability to govern. Queen Elizabeth's frustration, as per the source, grew over the past years and that she felt dismayed. Also, Her Majesty reportedly expressed her frustration and exasperation - specifically with the quality of political leadership.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Boris Johnson will reportedly deliver a "do or die" Brexit this coming October 31, even though he's facing stern opposition from Remainers in the House of Commons. Reportedly, Johnson pledged to leave the EU in 80 days time - either with or without a deal - and will honor the result of the 2016 referendum.
