Nigel Farage has made a number of incendiary remarks about the royal family and said the Queen Mother was an “overweight, chain-smoking gin drinker.”
Farage said in a speech to Sydney’s Conservative Political Action Conference in Australia, ridiculed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle over their plans to have a “maximum” of two children for the sake of the planet.
The Guardian newspaper had a recording of part of the speech given by the Brexit Party leader.
He described the Queen as an “amazing, awe-inspiring woman” and he hopes she will live a “very, very long time” to prevent Prince Charles becoming the King of England.
He reportedly said, “When it comes to her son, when it comes to Charlie Boy and climate change, oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.
“Her mother, Her Royal Highness the Queen’s mother was a slightly overweight, chain-smoking gin drinker who lived to 101-years old.
“All I can say is Charlie Boy is now in his 70s… may the Queen live a very, very long time.”
Answering a question about women not wanting to have children due to climate change Farage said, “Well, if I want the Queen to live a long time to stop Charlie Boy becoming king, I want Charlie Boy to live even longer and William to live forever to stop Harry becoming king.
“Terrifying! Here was Harry, here he was this young, brave, boisterous, all-male, getting into trouble, turning up at stag parties inappropriately dressed, drinking too much and causing all sorts of mayhem.
“And then – a brave British officer who did his bit in Afghanistan – he was the most popular royal of a younger generation that we’ve seen for 100-years.
“And then he met Meghan Markle, and it’s fallen off a cliff. We’ve been told in the last week that Meghan and Harry will only have two children… and we’re all completely ignoring the real problem the Earth faces.
“And that is the fact the population of the globe is exploding but no one dares talk about it, no one dares deal with it, and whether Prince Harry has two kids is irrelevant given there are now 2.6bn Chinese and Indians on this Earth.”
