Singer Morrissey has long been vocal about his dislike for Britain’s monarchy system, but now he’s taken it a step further by blaming the royals for the tragic suicide of a nurse last week.
While speaking with New Zealand television outlet 3News, Morrissey claimed, “Even with the recent story about the nurse killing herself in King Edward Hospital, there’s no blame placed on Kate Middleton who was in the hospital as far as I could see for absolutely no reason. She feels no shame about the death of this woman, she’s saying nothing about the death of this poor woman. The arrogance of the British royals is staggering, absolutely staggering. And why it’s allowed to be I really don’t know.”
He continued, “Does she have a health condition? Is it anorexia or is it pregnancy? We don’t know. But what is the health condition? I mean morning sickness already? So much hoo haw and then suddenly as bright as a button as soon as this poor woman dies she’s out of hospital? It doesn’t ring true. It doesn’t ring true.”
Morrissey is currently promoting his international tour, which ends in Mexico on March 14.
