Speaking as an English citizen:   
The news of late, today especially, has been dominated almost entirely by the Royal Birth, with the only real exception being mention of how uncharacteristically warm it is, as though the citizenry were unaware.   
It seems that, as it was at the time of the Royal Wedding, our fair-weather friends in the US are collectively more entranced by this than we are - and my reaction to the latest from our own Royal Family, despite what my consistent capitalisation of the Royal Anything would imply, is the same as it was, is, and perchance always will be in response to the Royal News.

Do you think the Royal family should be turned into back to regular civilians and have their unwritten rights of freedom returned to them? Were there any polls about that?

Having said that, the BBC has read out some texts regarding the Royal Birth to the effect: "Get over it. Everyone has babies. Give us the rest of the news."

Seems like the older generations care more about the Royal family than the new generation.

That's a fair assumption, good sir

I realise that this may not answer your question, but let me answer the question that I think you're asking: It's not that I want to see the Royal Family done away with, the points I was intending to put across were that I would like to see fewer news hours devoted to every time the Royal Gardener sneezes and that I am generally apathetic towards the Royal Birth and towards most Royal Occurences.
With regards to polls: The BBC in general do not issue any polls on matters other than elections, and I won't even pretend to care what approach ITV takes.
