30. There isn't a particular distinction

apart from the affordability of a minor, but pointless, op. As the links say, when the last generation of the royal family had it done, about 20% of British people did; the NHS doesn't (and didn't) do it for free unless there is thought to be a medical need (and medical opinion, which used to think that it was a good idea with some tight foreskins, has turned away from that in the past 50 years or so), and so it would have been restricted to those that could afford a private op. Quite a few people did, including the royal family, but not everyone. Now, it's basically only Muslims and Jews.

I think it's worth pointing out that Britain really doesn't give a toss about this. This is not a common topic for discussion.
