The Republic demands that Kate and Prince William give back the squandered money to the public. Mr. Smith claimed that the monarchy had a significantly higher overall cost than the British royal family admits. It amounts to approximately £345 million annually from the taxpayer and must be transferred back. The CEO of the Republic, Mr. Graham Smith, is also campaigning for the abolition of the monarchy and the Queen’s replacement by an election of a democratic head of state. Graham Smith, CEO of the organization, said that the UK owes no revenue or a position to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
“We do not owe Kate and Prince William an income, a role, or anything. They can go off and do their own thing.”
He added: “The monarchy is there to give us one person, and that is the Queen’s head of state. Therefore, the Queen should be on an annual salary similar to that of the Prime Minister.”
Smith said the royals should excise expenditures. Thus, the country can save £345million and only have a head of state, funded by a small office. The CEO also bashed Kate and Prince William on their “outrageous” expenditure during the same interview. Graham Smith addressed claims that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wasted £15,000 on a 950 ft fence to prevent the crowds from peering into their estate. Kate and Prince William married in 2011. Although Prince William is second in line to the throne, his extravagance should cease. Smith said this is an enormous sum of money. The royal couple should embrace their lives and not seek to waste taxpayer money.
Royalty Slammed For ‘ostentatious’ Spending
The Republic CEO also argued that this kind of wealth is common for the royals because what they care about is their lifestyle. They have a profound sense of right.
“They routinely spend money in the tens of thousands, whether on their own homes or private plane and helicopter travel around the UK when they could easily take cars or trains. So this is typical of more of their spending,” Smith added.
Because this is tax money, the use of public funds is ridiculous. £15,000 is more than individuals receive in one year. A representative of the palace confirmed in the Daily Mail reports that the exterior structure of Royal residential buildings is continuously reviewed as part of the broader operation of the properties on the £15,000 hedge. Occasionally, the landscape and gardens are modified, the fences inclusive.
