THE British monarchy is in crisis after attention was once again drawn to the absolute pointlessness of its very existence.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey has once again forced Britons to look at the institution of monarchy and wonder why the f**k it is there.
Historian Denys Finch Hatton said: “Apparently this interview is the biggest crisis the monarchy’s faced for decades. I’d say it’s bugger all compared to the future king divorcing his wife and her subsequent death in the 90s, but whatever.
“Britons with longer memories may remember the monarchy being in crisis when Princess Anne divorced, or when Princess Margaret divorced, or when the king abdicated to shag a divorced American.
“And if you think that’s bad, how about in 1917 when anti-German feeling was rampant and we suddenly realised we had a load of Krauts on the throne, and they had to change their name to a castle?
“Basically the monarchy is in perpetual crisis whenever anything goes wrong because the country notices it, realises what a complete waste of money and time it is and wonders how hard it would be to get rid of.
“I expect this crisis will blow over like the others. If they know what’s f**king good for them.”
