Millions of people in the UK are enjoying a bank holiday this weekend due to the platinum jubilee celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II.
He has held the throne for long 70 years and the United Kingdom itself has been plagued by monarchies for centuries.
It’s not just outsiders who find the continued reign of Windsor’s home a wonder.
Even as Queen Elizabeth is celebrated, #AbolishTheMonarchy is trending on social media.
Some British Queen Elizabeth II wants to see Queen Elizabeth the Last.
Not just the last Elizabeth, the last king.
Monarchy is not just an old ghost of the past – it is a real problem in the lives of the British people.
Queen Elizabeth herself enjoyed widespread popularity in the UK.
After all, the lion’s share of citizens have held the throne longer than they have survived.
But his son, Prince Charles, is less popular. Prince William also finds himself missing his grandmother’s appeal.
At the moment, Britain’s majority continues to support the monarchy as an institution.
However, various studies and surveys have shown that there is a growing desire among the younger generation to abolish this system.
It’s not just the irrationality of a modern, industrialized nation that plays-acts when it comes to electing its leaders as if it were for the queen. There are real problems.
Recently, British schoolgirls – all of them – were given a booklet full of information about the Queen.
This was done in celebration of his platinum jubilee. Printing and distributing the materials cost about মিল 15 million.
Some have commented that the only reliable food for some of the children in the school is the food they get, so at the expense of the students, it seems like an insult to the monarchy.
Sovereign grants are an account of money paid by taxpayers from the British public – to support the royal family.
This amount is reported each year, and falls between 30 and 40 million pounds sterling.
This is a small part of the puzzle. The total annual cost is very close to 90 million pounds sterling.
Queen Elizabeth II’s estimated wealth is between 400 and 500 million.
(Net worth is complex, but Windsor’s home has huge wealth, a wealth of generations, and of course world-famous gems of dubious origin.)
It is true that all the mega-rich have a burden on the society in which they live, but Something Receive direct funding from the government for this without actively scams.
Sometimes, it’s hard for Americans to imagine, because monarchy often looks as innocent as it is profoundly stupid.
They are more than prohibitively expensive mascots.
Perhaps the best analogy for Americans is to imagine the Kardashian-Jenner dynasty ascending the throne.
We must first imagine that the United States government pays about $ 100 million annually to protect the Kardashian-Jenner family.
Now we paint a picture of Chris Jenner on our money, of the family mentioned in most or all of the patriotic music, and of every government institution that exists nominally for Chris.
Next, we imagine if President Biden and the U.S. Congress would have to meet Chris formally within a year, and Chris might even bring the ability to “review” before the law is passed.
Of course, the British royal family is not like Windsor’s house … because the latter is worse.
Queen Elizabeth II’s wealth did not come from an Instagram ad or a reality television or a phone app or a lip mat, it came from a generation using resources and power to grab more wealth.
Say what you want about Chris Jenner, but we imagine that none of his jewelry was torn from the sacred Indian idol or looted from the temple.
A ridiculously common argument in favor of the monarchy’s irrational perseverance is the claim that the family brings in a lot of revenue from tourism every year.
First and foremost, the castle and even those stupid-looking nutcracker guards may still be without a king’s residence. People will still visit the scenic country.
Second, France does very well in tourism every year. We think they dramatically abolished their monarchy long ago.
