Award-winning UK author and royal expert Hilary Mantel revealed in an interview her thoughts on the uncertain future of the UK Monarchy, and according to him, things are not looking pretty.


The state of the royal family has embedded fears into so many hearts as there are doubts that the dynamics will change if the baton of leadership is passed to the next generation.

Amongst the numerous individuals is award-winning UK author and royal expert, Hilary Mantel. In an interview with The Telegraph, she explained her thoughts on the UK Monarchy.

Mantel revealed in the interview her feelings concerning the uncertain future, which she referred to as the end game for the UK Monarchy. 

Mantel explained that she did not know how much longer the institution was going to last, adding that she did not think it would outlast Prince William.


The expert was not only interested in the state of affairs, but she also had deep concerns for Queen Elizabeth. Mantel thought the Monarch was lonely, knowing that her task was not one to be retired from.

The author had wished the queen could abdicate, but she was sure that the 95-year-old was not centered on using the leadership as a show business.

Anti-royalties known as republicans had their doubts and dislikes for the heir apparent to the throne. 


Just like adding salt to injury, the Oprah Winfrey interview featuring Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle dropped a dose of doubt on the continuity of the Royal Family.

However, Mantel noted she was not going to judge them, and nobody truly knew what had happened; above all, she wished them the best of luck.

The uncertain nature of the future of the UK Monarchy was not only felt by Mantel. Anti-royalties known as republicans had their doubts and dislikes for the heir apparent to the throne. 

In a recent YouGov poll, a majority of 42% had a negative perception about Prince William as the republicans have endlessly continued searching for a means of voting out the Monarchy. 

However, a Royal expert had previously shared with an insider the possible negatives that would arise from abolishing the UK Monarchy. 

Ranging from moving out of Buckingham Palace to the royalties pursuing financial independence, the disadvantages appear to be grievous. Will the Monarchy be abolished? This remains a question that will be answered with time.
