“The View” co-hosts weighed in on the possibility of the monarchy coming to an end on the recent episode of the chat show consisting of the five panelists.
On the show's Twitter page, they posed the big question of whether the monarchy will come tumbling down when Queen Elizabeth is no longer reigning.
“IS THE BRITISH MONARCHY ON BORROWED TIME? With the passing of Prince Philip as well as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepping away from their royal duties, one historian thinks the monarchy could see its end game soon – the co-hosts weigh in," the tweet read.

During the episode, Whoopi Goldberg asked her fellow host Meghan McCain about her thoughts on the claim. "I would literally eat a muddy tire than to watch anything having to do with Camilla and Charles," said the columnist.
McCain stated that the pair are the most boring people in the world while adding she can say that because she is an American. She acknowledged that people adore the Queen but shared that she did not like how they treated the Sussexes.
The 36-year-old further explained that she believes fellow Americans are protective of Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry mainly because she relocated to the UK to try to “modernize something, in my perspective - old archaic and deeply irrelevant.”
Now that the royal couple is back in the US, McCain expressed she is pleased that they have a safe space to live where they can live their lives freely.
JOY BEHAR AGREES
The Duke and Duchess now reside in California with their son one-year-old son Archie. Seeing that McCain said it was because of their royal exit that the monarchy no longer has exciting people, Joy Behar agreed with her.
According to the 78-year-old, Prince Harry and his wife were the upstarts who were going to keep royal fans on their toes while adding she does not think England is ready to be stuck with Prince Charles and his spouse.
THE MONARCHY IN QUESTION
Prince Harry and Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey sparked the debate on whether the monarchy could be abolished. If it were to happen, a lot would change within the royal household.
The royal matriarch would have to give up Buckingham Palace leaving the Cambridges to fend for themselves and pursue financial independence like the Sussexes.
Since the tell-all interview shook things up for the Royal family, following its airing, McCain shared her opinion on the March 9 episode and compared Markle and Winfrey to President George Washington and other founding fathers. The statement left Goldberg astounded.
That same month following the interview which saw the Duchess claim not to read newspaper reports about herself, McCain believed otherwise when discussing Piers Morgan's departure from "Good Morning Britain."
She questioned the Duchess' statement and said if she could put a formal complaint following Morgan's remark that she was not truthful about having suicidal thoughts, she was certainly paying attention to her publicity.
