Berlin author and royal critic Jacinta Nandi can look forward to British King Charles III's visit to Germany. not understand. "It annoys me so much how the Germans love the royal family," said the 42-year-old Brit to the German Press Agency in Berlin. "I think the love for royalty would end in an instant if you had to pay for it. You get the fun of monarchy without all the expense."
Nandi has lived in the German capital for more than 20 years, but is passionately upset about the monarchy in her old homeland. She has nothing against Charles personally, she said. "I just think the system is stupid. It hides poverty and oppression. At the same time, the system is very inhuman towards family members." Charles never made his own decisions in his life.
Nandi advocates abolishing the monarchy. It's just too expensive at a time of great poverty, she said. However, the author does not believe there will be a majority in Britain for her position. And she herself admitted a moment of doubt, albeit reluctantly, as she said: "When the Queen gave her speech at the beginning of Corona, I cried. She encouraged me." But Nandi added: "I think that's a bit childish too. A grown-up country doesn't need a main self-help coach."
Jacinta Nandi was born in London in 1980 and has lived in Berlin as an author and columnist since 2000.
