Singer and former Smiths front man Morrissey is blaming Britain’s royal family for the recent suicide of Jacintha Saldanha, according to Rolling Stone.
Morrissey has been in a nasty and frequently hateful feud with the royal family for several years. In the wake of the nurse’s death, the singer has openly criticized Kate Middleton for visiting the hospital for what he feels was no good reason.
The musician said in a recent interview:
“There’s no blame placed at Kate Middelton who was in the hospital for, as far as I can see, absolutely no reason. She feels no shame about the death of this woman. She’s saying nothing about the death of this poor woman. The arrogance of the British royals is staggering, absolutely staggering; and why it’s allowed to be I don’t know.”
During his chat with the folks at 3News, Morrissey also speculated that the real reasons Kate Middleton visited the hospital are probably being kept from the prying eyes of the British public.
The singer added:
“Does she have a health condition? Is it anorexia or is it a pregnancy, we don’t know. Well what is the health condition, I mean morning sickness already? So much hoo-ha then suddenly [she is] as bright as a button?”
Over the summer, Morrissey took issue with the royal family once again during the 2012 London Olympic Games. In a letter to his fan club, the singer boldly compared Britain to Nazi Germany.
“The ‘dazzling royals’ have, quite naturally, hi-jacked the Olympics for their own empirical needs, and no oppositional voice is allowed in the free press,” Morrissey wrote in his letter. He added that the “spirit of 1939 Germany now pervades throughout media-brand Britain.”
The singer’s controversial antics may soon be drawing to a close. Morrissey intends to retire from music in around two years.
