Nigel Farage launches scathing attack on the Royal Family during speech
Nigel Farage, the Brexit Party leader in the UK, has attacked Prince Harry and his wife Meghan along with other members of the UK Royal Family in a speech in Australia.
According to The Guardian, Farage was speaking at an event in Australia last month when he mocked the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for their “irrelevant” social justice and environmental campaigns.
The former UKIP leader, who has failed to be elected as an MP in Westminster on five occasions, said that Harry had been a hugely popular member of the Royal Family, but has "fallen off a cliff" since meeting Meghan Markle.
"And then he met Meghan Markle, and it’s fallen off a cliff," Farage said.
"We’ve been told in the last week that Meghan and Harry will only have two children… and we’re all completely ignoring the real problem the Earth faces, and that is the fact the population of the globe is exploding but no one dares talk about it, no one dares deal with it, and whether Prince Harry has two kids is irrelevant given there are now 2.6 billion Chinese and Indians on this Earth."
Farage heaped praised on the Queen, describing her as an "amazing, awe-inspiring woman" and saying "we’re bloody lucky to have her".
But he had little time for her mother or her son, as he proceeded to berate Prince Charles and the late Queen Mother, who he attacked as an "overweight, chain-smoking gin drinker."
"When it comes to her son, when it comes to Charlie Boy and climate change, oh dear, oh dear, oh dear," Farage said.
"Her mother, Her Royal Highness the Queen’s mother, was a slightly overweight, chain-smoking gin drinker who lived to 101 years old. All I can say is Charlie Boy is now in his 70s… may the Queen live a very, very long time."
Farage said he hoped Prince William lived longer in order to stop his younger brother, Harry, ever becoming King.
A bizarre claim considering Harry is sixth in line for the throne, behind William's three children.
