Stacey Solomon Royal Family comments resurface

‘Why are we so obsessed with these humans?’

Stacey Solomon has received praise for her thoughts she shared about the Royal Family on Loose Women.

The former X Factor contestant who is now a regular on the ITV daytime show made the comments in 2018, but they have resurfaced following the death of Queen Elizabeth II last week.

The singer, celebrity and mum said that she didn’t “get the point of the Royal Family,” or why we’re “so obsessed with these humans.”

She pointed out that some people are “obsessed with these humans that are exactly the same [as us]” and that to her and other members on the panel, they have become “celebrities” and “that’s all they are”.

When other panel members wanted to qualify that they “love the Queen” and she is “brilliant”, Solomon quickly questioned: “But for what?”

When her peers stated that the monarch has always worked hard and done her duty for to the country, Solomon replied: “But I would work hard if the whole country paid for me to have 12 houses!”

She added “It’s freezing cold outside and people are homeless and these people have houses to spare”, before voicing her frustration over not being able to “see the purpose of all of that money going to this entire family”.

Many have praised Solomon for her comments, describing her comments as “valid” and “not malicious.”

Someone else said she was “absolutely correct.”

The Queen died peacefully on Thursday at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, and on Monday the late monarch left Balmoral for the final time as her coffin began its journey to Edinburgh.

Here, it will rest for 24 hours before being flown to London, where it will be taken to Buckingham Palace, before being relocated to Westminster Hall.

The coffin is expected to arrive at Buckingham Palace at 20:00 GMT on Tuesday, where King Charles III and Queen Camilla will witness its arrival.

At Westminster Hall, Her Majesty will lie-in-state for a four-day period, allowing the public to pay their respects. Her funeral will take place on September 19, starting at 11am.
