There are several episodes of scandals and use of power that have put Queen Elizabeth II under the watchful eye of the citizens, but there is a probability that it will be the last in the history of the United Kingdom and this may depend on the British.
“I’m not sure why he tries so hard to keep his money secret, everyone knows he has astronomical wealth beyond the imagination of his subjects, and a few zeros or so make no difference to monarchists.” Toynbee wrote.
Even so, the true figure of the wealth of Elizabeth II was never revealed, as according to the columnist, the leaked documents show that the British queen had millions in tax havens in territories such as the Cayman Islands and Bermuda that represent the “last and shameful vestiges of its lost empire”, not to mention that it keeps 25% of the 9,000 million pounds sterling obtained from the auction of rights of wind farms during the next 10 years.
The author suggests that neither money nor the abuse of power reflects the real damage that the monarchy inflicts on the United Kingdom as its very existence, which “ambushes and infantilizes the public imagination” with the stereotypes that have formed over the years forging one ” society increasingly rigid and socially immobile “.
Toynbee concluded that Brexit is just a signl of the fallacy of “British sovereignty” and that new generations show that they are less monarchical than previous generations. That is why he believes that when Queen Elizabeth II passes away in the next few years, the unpopularity of prince charles It will lead the British to question whether Elizabeth II should be the country’s last queen.
