Republic is an organisation that campaigns for Queen Elizabeth II to be replaced by an elected, democratic head of state. The organisation has also made a film regarding the Prince of Wales titled ‘The Man Who Shouldn’t be King’. Graham Smith, Republic’s CEO, told Express.co.uk that Prince Charles becoming King could result in a very serious crisis.
Mr Smith said: “We have made a documentary titled ‘The Man Who Shouldn’t be King’ about Prince Charles.
“We are and I think a lot of people are concerned about Charles becoming King.
“I think he is going to hasten the end of the monarchy.
“The monarchy tends to survive because of the Queen and Prince Charles is not as well liked or supported.

“He is also much easier to challenge and criticise.
“The problem with him is that he cannot help himself when it comes to interfering with politics.”
He continued: “If we have just one serious issue where the Government, after he becomes King, changes its policy to match what Charles has said on the public record previously then we have to start asking questions as to whether they did that because they thought it was a good idea or because Prince Charles was lobbying them privately.
“That would cause a very serious crisis.”
“So, he is probably one of the most expensive members of the Royal Family.”
Mr Smith added: “The Queen obviously being Head of State would cost the most I imagine.
“It is very hard to pinpoint one over the other, but we know that the Queen and Charles take millions of pounds from the two Duchies.
“We would assume that the Queen would be more expensive than the other because of her position as Head of State.”
