Russell Brand made a post on his Facebook page saying this:
”I mean in England we have a Queen for f*ck’s sake. A Queen! We have to call her things like “Your Majesty” YOUR MAJESTY! Like she’s all majestic, like an eagle or a mountain. She’s just a person. A little old lady in a shiny hat – that we paid for. Or “Your Highness”! What the f*ck is that?! What, she’s high up, above us, at the top of a class pyramid on a shelf of money with her own face on it. We should be calling her Mrs Windsor. In fact that’s not even her real name, they changed it in the war to distract us from the inconvenient fact that they were as German as the enemy that teenage boys were being encouraged, conscripted actually, to die fighting. Her actual name is Mrs Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.
“Mrs Saxe-Coburg-Gotha”!! No wonder they f*cking changed it. It’s the most German thing I’ve ever heard – she might’ve well as been called “Mrs Bratwurst-Kraut-Nazi”.
Since then he has unsurprisingly been the victim of a media backlash. This is nothing new to Russell Brand who is very outspoken with his views and he is someone we feature regularly on this website. For your viewing pleasure we have compiled all of his videos where he speaks out about ‘The Windsors’. Feel free to share it far and wide.
Oh and if you want to research the name Saxe-Coburg-Gotha a simple google search will bring you all the information you need to know.
