Actors Fear Offending Windsors

A Guardian report has shown how the official British class system is useful for propping up the feudal institution of monarchy.

In a report on an upcoming BBC TV drama about the monarchy the Guardian newspaper reported director Rupert Gould as referring in relation to the stage version to “certain actors refusing to be involved because of how it might affect their future relationship with the honours system.”

Loyalty to feudal privilege can sometimes be bought, it seems, with the chance of an OBE or knighthood.

The series, King Charles III, is to be screened on BBC 2 this May.
