On May 10, Prince Charles replaced the weakened Elizabeth II at the opening of Parliament
The heir to the throne delivered a non-unanimous speech
Many commentators have pointed to an obvious contradiction in his speech
For Prince Charles it was a very important moment. On May 10, the future King of England replaced his mother, Elizabeth II, at the opening of the British Parliament. Due to health issues and mobility issues, her Majesty was forced to cancel this event for the first time in nearly 60 years and then delegate her speech to Prince Charles. And if he was particularly moved by this solemn moment, the Prince of Wales is at the center of a small controversy. In his speech, written by the representatives, he said that the administration will work “help alleviate the cost of living for families” in a context of economic uncertainty. An announcement that did not satisfy the observers of the Crown at all. Quickly, they noticed a rather grotesque contradiction.
For this speech, in fact, Prince Charles was installed on a throne completely covered with gold and adorned with all the royal clothes. “I would have just made this announcement from any other room, wearing any other outfit”, “This man sits on a golden throne as he talks about the cost of living. It’s shockingly beyond parody “,” The next time Biden gives a speech on cost-of-living, I want him to come out of a life-size painted diorama by Klimt wrapped in a gold robe encrusted with rubies and emeralds “,” I will never understand how in the 21st century we still have kings and queens. Royalty thrives on the abundance of wealth provided to them by the taxpayers of the working classand they explain on television on a golden throne to tell how they will help the poor “we can particularly read on Twitter.
Elizabeth II: after her notable absence, reappears
In front of Parliament, Prince Charles detailed the range of the government’s major bills for the next parliamentary session. Purchasing Power, Northern Ireland, many topics have been revised, as it has been “the defense of democracy” around the world, especially in Ukraine. Present alongside his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, and eldest son, Prince William, the heir was therefore not unanimous with commentators and the British. It must be said that many were disappointed and worried about her Majesty’s absence. Since the beginning of her reign, Elizabeth II has missed this important speech only twice: in 1959 and in 1963, when she was pregnant with her children Andrew and Edward. A few days later, she appeared radiant and glamorous at another event. Reassuring images!
