A Republican campaign group has called for an honest debate on the future of the monarchy from Sussex to Oprah Winfrey

following revelations in an interview with the Duke and Duchess

Anti-monarchy group Republic said the institution was facing “its worst crisis since its abdication in 1936”

Republic executive Graham Smith said the monarchy was “condoned because of a carefully managed but dishonest image” that has been created over the years

“The monarchy has just been hit by its worst crisis since its abdication in 1936, whether for Britain or for the younger kings, this lazy institution has to go,” he said

“Some people will say, ‘Well, you would say that’, but this interview was just meant to highlight what many people have known for years: The monarchy is rotten to the core and does not reflect British values / p>

“Most people in the UK don’t care about the royals, they just aren’t that interested

“The monarchy is tolerated because of a carefully managed but dishonest image that has been created over the past few decades”

Smith said people are now “getting a much clearer picture of what the monarchy really is,” adding that “doesn’t look good”

He continued, “With the Queen likely to be replaced by King Charles this decade, the position of the monarchy has rarely looked weaker

“We now need honesty in the monarchy debate, which has hitherto been sorely lacking, honesty about the democratic alternative, honesty about royal corruption, honesty about costs, tourism and every other nonsense that royalists have done for years exercise, “said Smith

“Great Britain is better than that We deserve better The monarchy will always be part of our history It must not be part of our future”
