ABOLISH The Monarchy trended on Twitter last night amid the UK Coronavirus pandemic.
As it was revealed that Prince Charles had been tested for the deadly virus whilst frontline NHS staff were unable to be tested many voiced their anger at the alleged privilege amid the pandemic that has brought the UK to a standstill.
One user wrote: “Absolute no brainer. Bread and circuses. Give all their money to the NHS and the needy. Turn their Palaces into museums, so that the public can enjoy some free culture when all this is over.”
Whist another mentioned a recent royal visit to Ireland in which the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joked :I bet everyone’s like ‘I’ve got coronavirus, I’m dying,’ …It does seem quite dramatic about coronavirus… Is it being a little hyped up, do you think, by the media?”
Another user tweeted: “how much money could we free up for the NHS, if we confiscated any wealth held by the royals and #abolishthemonarchy with immediate effect? When this crisis is over we could turn some of the properties into museums and tourist attractions to make money for all people.”
Another said: “Charles has mild symptoms, he’s tested when there is no test for the people or the hospital staff & he goes to Scotland.His son moves to take photos with staff who have to stop working to satisfy their need for recognition & he jokes about a #Covid_19 “
Whist another was angry Charles had recently visited Scotland: “The journalists reporting on prince charles makes you fucking sick. If it wasnt bad enough he has endangered others by coming to scotland (not his primary residence) , theres an army of journalists who have travelled just to report outside a fucking gate. #abolishthemonarchy”
