Anti-monarchy campaigners have today said the Queen is already in trouble over Brexit, as the row over suspending parliament continues.
Speaking for Republic, Graham Smith said:
Anti-monarchy campaigners have called for a full parliamentary inquiry into royal spending after the release of this year's finance report.
Prince Charles, the Queen and other royals should publicly condemn the Sultan of Brunei for human rights abuses, campaigners have said today.
The call comes amid a growing backlash against the state's decision to introduce death by stoning for gay sex and other so-called crimes.
Anti-monarchy campaigners have called for a wide-ranging review of Britain's constitution, following claims Theresa May could use the Queen to block parliament's will.
Anti-monarchy campaigners have criticised the police response to Prince Philip's crash and reports of driving without a seat belt.
Graham Smith, CEO of Republic, said today:
"This isn't special treatment because of his age, it's special treatment because of his status."
As Buckingham Palace prepares to release its annual accounts, campaigners have rejected claims the monarchy earns money for the UK economy.
Calls by Labour MP Emma Dent Coad for the royals to move out of Buckingham Palace are 'spot on' according to campaign group Republic. The group has said taxpayers need to 'take back control' of royal palaces and open them up as major tourist sites.
Tourism agency VisitBritain has failed to provide any evidence that the monarchy is good for tourism.
BBC and Channel 4 News have been heavily criticised for inept and distorted coverage of the royal wedding and monarchy.
A 32,000-strong petition against taxpayers' money being spent on the royal wedding will be handed to MPs early Wednesday evening.
The petition, organised by campaign group Republic, shows strong opposition to public money being spent on Saturday's wedding.
