“Is there any one of the Royal Family who wants to be king or queen? I don’t think so,” he told Newsweek.
And he said the royals were doing it “for the greater good of the people”.
I’m sorry. I normally don’t criticize the way countries other than mine choose to govern themselves (save those which obviously get no choice in the matter like N. Korea). But how is maintaining a tax-funded dynasty of some of the richest blue-bloods on Earth for the good of the people. I mean if the British want to keep their monarchy, I have no reason to disparage how they spend their taxes. But the royals could at least drop the transparent pretense that they exist for the greater good of the people.
