The death of the Queen Elizabeth it would be a good time, “a chance for abolish the monarchy, institution founded on exploitation “: the Welsh director is convinced of this Peter Greenaway. Che, interviewed by The printsaid: “Surely the sovereign was a good person and had a great sense of responsibility. But about her departure I have thoughts that reflect my republican ideas: for me this could be an opportunity to abolish the monarchy and create a republic, as in Italy”.
Greenaway, who defines himself as a proud republican, explained that the monarchy has many negative sides: “I think a country needs a reference figure. The Queen, however, was expected to have no opinion on anything. human thing a choice of convenience. This woman born in privilege, which she probably did not deserve, helped to carry on the monarchy, which is an institution founded on the exploitation of the others “.
The director has something for everyone, even for Charles: “The idea that genetics makes a good king is nonsense. Maybe I should whisper this thing: but let’s look at Charles, so-called III …”. His opinion of him does not change even when he talks about the monarchy in Holland, the country in which he currently lives: “The problem is the same: the chances of generating a deserving sovereign each time, capable of governing a country, is practically impossible“..
