Being thousands of miles away from his country may have been shameless. In a speech in Sydney, Australia, Nigel Farage harshly criticized several members of the British royal family, including the mother of Queen Elizabeth II, as reported by several English-language media including the Guardian .
Queen mother treated to "gin drinker"
The former head of the europhobe party Ukip and today number one Brexit party took advantage of a conference of the Australian right, Saturday, to which the media were not invited, first to praise the Queen of England "This is an amazing, impressive woman, we are so happy to have," said Nigel Farage, reelected MEP in May.
But he immediately turned to Prince Charles: "When it comes to his son, when it comes to Charlie Boy (nickname infantilisant, Ed) and climate change, my God, my God, my God. His mother, the Queen Mother, was slightly overweight, fat smoker, gin drinker, who lived until age 101. All I can say is that Charlie Boy is now in his seventies ... May the Queen still live long, long time. "
"Prevent Harry from becoming king"
Another member of the British family to pay for this highly offensive speech: Prince Harry. Asked about the choice of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to have only two children, Nigel Farage had unkind comments to the heir to the throne after Prince William. "If I want the queen to live long to keep Charlie Boy from becoming king, I want Charlie Boy to live longer and William to live forever to keep Harry from becoming king," he said.
