Royal Family News: King Charles Humiliated By ‘Not My King’ Protests
According to the latest reports, protesters held signs and shouted “not my king” at Westminster Abbey this week ahead of the royal family’s arrival for their annual Commonwealth Day service. It was certainly loud enough for King Charles to hear it and most certainly the nearby British media who were there with their cameras rolling. For King Charles, this is definitely something to be embarrassed about as the royals depend on good media coverage and popularity for their survival.
Of course, many royal fans and critics alike sure have had a lot to say about the matter on social media. Some comments have included, “It’s about time someone does something about the monarchy. They have become completely unnecessary in modern times. Let us face it as most of us live in fear of the next bill, this lot expect us to clap with admiration a group with castles, palaces, mansions ‘cottages’ and almost unlimited funds,” along with, “We really seriously need to think about abolishing the monarchy. Let this system of colonialism die with Queen Elizabeth. Change without improvement is just a lateral move, making things different but not better.”
