 Graham Smith, head of an anti-monarchy campaign group Republic has put together a damning indictment on the Royal Family while calling for the head of state to be replaced In a scathing attack, Mr Smith called for an independent and elected Head of State to represent the country Speaking to Express.co.uk, Mr Smith said: “We need to get rid of the monarchy altogether The Queen does NOT approve of the ‘Meghan Markle effect’ over Harry Princess Eugenie targeted by Instagram TROLLS after embarrassing error  “One of the main problems with the Royal Family is that they want to have their cake and eat it  “They want the prestige, the status and to be feted but then want to control access to them from the media and the public ” Calling for a head of state similar to that seen in Germany and Ireland, Mr Smith insisted that the idea of having a head of state that is not accountable to anyone and is unelected simply isn’t fit for purpose in the present day  Crowned in 1952, Britons have witnessed the same head of state for 67 years and in that time, the Republic CEO insisted that the UK has changed significantly  READ MORE: Meghan Markle and Harry INFURIATE staff with ‘SELFISH’ rule Although some may see the Queen and the Royal Family as a symbol of Britain, Mr Smith regards the monarchy as a concept that doesn’t represent the UK in the 21st century  He added: “It doesn’t represent the UK as we are. “The monarchy represents a particular idea of Britain which we haven’t ever been which is a fantasy of Kings, Queens and fairy tales  “We’re one of the biggest economies in the world and an undemocratic and secretive royal family doesn’t represent the country I live in accurately to others around the world ” READ MORE: Prince Harry held ‘SECRET meetings’ to launch Diana-inspired project What Meghan Markle and Prince Harry REALLY got up to on their secon Meghan Markle and Prince Harry WARNED about ‘HELL home births’  Aside from the problems that lie within the existing monarch, writing for Republic Mr Smith argued that Brexit has shown “that it serves no purpose but to do the Prime Minister’s bidding”  He said: “The monarch isn’t independent, she is there to do the government’s bidding, to do as the PM tells her to do  “Britain is witnessing a clash between the fiction of parliamentary democracy and the reality of constitutional monarchy ” As the head of state, the Queen is impartial to political matters but the Republic chair argued that when it comes to granting bills, the Queen merely listens to the advice of ministers around her Royal Baby name: What will Meghan Markle and Harry’s child be called? Moment Meghan Markle is SHOT DOWN by Queen during jewellery row  The Queen has never made her views on Brexit clear publicly as she must be politically neutral as Head of State  In a speech at Sandringham Women’s Institute last month, Her Majesty called for “common ground”, respecting “different point of views” and “never losing sight of the bigger picture”  Addressing the crowd, she said: “The continued emphasis on patience, friendship, a strong community-focus and considering the needs of others are as important today as they were when the group was founded all those years ago  “Of course, every generation faces fresh challenges and opportunities. “As we look for new answers in the modern age, I for one prefer the tried and tested recipes, like speaking well of each other and respecting different points of view; coming together to seek out the common ground, and never losing sight of the bigger picture ”
