Archbishop’s remark on Royal Family branded ‘silly’ after ‘jumping on woke bandwagon’


THE ARCHBISHOP of Canterbury has been attacked by a royal author over his comments on how harsh life is as a member of the Royal Family.

The Archbishop of Canterbury said being a member of the Royal Family was like serving “life without parole”. Justin Welby’s comments were published in the Financial Times one day before Prince Philp passed away on April 9. The Archbishop’s comments included his view that the British public has unrealistic expectations when it comes to the royals.

Referring to the Royal Family, he claimed “we expect them to be superhuman”.

Royal author Phil Dampier commented on the Archbishop of Canterbury’s remarks, posting on Twitter, “silly thing to say”.

Many Twitter followers of Mr Dampier replied to his comment.

One follower, referring to the Queen as the head of the Church of England, said: “Indeed it is for someone in his job role.

“I’m not sure his earthly boss will be too pleased with him.”

Another follower of Mr Dampier said: “I think William should cut ties with that ‘Archbishop of Canterbury’.

“He should cut ties just like he did with Tom Brady.

“The Archbishop has clearly fallen for Meghan Markle.”

The Archbishop also warned that Prince Harry could struggle to shake off his “celeb” status.

He referred to the example of King Edward VIII, who abdicated in 1936 so he could marry US socialite Wallis Simpson.

He said: “It’s life without parole, isn’t it?

“If you go back to the 1930s, Edward VIII, he was still a celeb and followed everywhere once he’d abdicated.

“We expect them to be superhuman.”

However, the Archbishop was described as being “singularly inappropriate” and “jumping on a woke bandwagon”, by royal author Mr Dampier.

The royal author warned Mr Welby against “straying into politics”.

He also said that Mr Welby’s comments “will certainly raise eyebrows among older churchgoers”.
