Britain will enter a state of shock when the Queen passes, according to Andrew Marr
Andrew Marr, a veteran broadcaster, has claimed that the Queen's death will be 'ethical earthquake' for everyone, adding that some royals are behaving like 'free riders'.
The 62-year-old broadcaster addressed the future of the monarchy during his first interview since quitting the last job in December.
The expert believes that the country will enter a state of shock when the the monarch passes. According to him, big changes are coming.
Marr, who feels free to speak his mind after leaving the BBC, says Prince Charles and William to “orchestrate a clear-out” with the aim of maintaining the support of the public.
“There is a sense that the whole issue of the future has not been discussed for a very long time, because the Queen is so admired and so revered."
“When that terrible day comes that the Queen is no longer with us, the country will go into a state of shock - it will be like an ethical earthquake and I do not think it is fully understood or appreciated how this is going to be an absolutely massive moment in all our lives," he told the Daily Mail.
“I know the Prince of Wales has plans for reforming the monarchy; it appears Charles and William will orchestrate a clear-out," Marr added.
“I’m sorry to say some members of the royal family have been behaving like free riders, assuming the monarchy — the institution itself — can never be questioned."
Marr also revealed the reason of quitting the BBC, saying he became frustrated at “self-censoring” his opinions.
