The Queen was recently criticised by an anti-monarchy group Republic after Buckingham palace reduced Her Majesty’s ‘official duties’ for the first time in more than a decade.
Amidst the mobility issues, the Monarch’s duties no longer include taking part in the State Opening of Parliament which was previously considered necessary by “constitutional convention”.
Taking to Twitter, Republic said that the “head of state changes our constitution to suit her changing needs” while adding, “If The Queen is unable to carry on, she should step down. Abolish the monarchy.”
In a scathing Tweet, David Head wrote, “Time to step down. The UK can't make do with a part-time head of state.”
In another post, Dermot Wickham wrote, “Please make Charles regent and let Elizabeth see out her final years with dignity and end the continual speculation about her health.”
