"All the individuals within the Royal Family, they're so magnificently,
unaccountably and unpardonably boring."
"I despise royalty. I always have done. It's fairy story nonsense, the
very idea of their existence in these days when people are dying daily
because they don't have enough money to operate one radiator in the
house; to me that's immoral."
"Money spent on royalty is money burnt."
"It's disgusting, when you consider what minimal contribution they make
in helping people. They never under any circumstances make a useful
statement about the world or people's lives. The whole thing seems like
a joke, a hideous joke. We don't believe in leprechauns so why should we
believe in the Queen?"
"The establishment - the monarchy and the government - don't care as far
as I can see. Many of them are of advanced years but they do nothing for
"Diana herself has never uttered one statement that has been of any use
to any member of the human race. If we have to put up with these ugly
individuals, why can't they at least do something off the mark."
"The royals are so staid and uninteresting."
