A royal critic has called out the British royal family for its apparently ‘outdated views’, and compared the monarchy, including Queen Elizabeth, to ‘fantasy’, reported Express UK.
Marina Purkiss, who appeared as a guest on Jeremy Vine, made the comments while discussing the future of the monarchy, and said that the family needs to be ‘ditched entirely’.
She also likened Queen Elizabeth’s world to a mythical one, saying: “The idea of royalty, to me, is fantasy. It should be put in a box with fairies and goblins and dwarves. It’s nonsense, it’s just nonsense.”
Purkiss went on to add: “I can’t believe we all play around this charade.”
She also commented on Prince William’s comments after returning from the Caribbean, in which he recognised the rising republican sentiment in the region.
“Fair play to William for accepting there is a need to change but I don’t think he should be saving it. I think he should be bowing out; this is time to check out,” she said.
