Russell Brand

The comedian-turned-YouTube influencer is not a supporter of the monarchy and can't understand why his fellow Brits have so much respect to the crown. Speaking years before Queen Elizabeth passed, he said: "I mean in England we have a Queen. We have to call her things like 'Your Majesty' like she's all majestic. She's just a person. "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 ... Her actual name is Mrs Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. It's the most German thing I've ever heard."
