She explained: “I’m probably gonna be of the opinion of nobody else in the entire world but I just don’t get it [the Royal Family]. I don’t get any of it.”
Other hosts then chimed in to say how the Queen was “brilliant” and that she’s “worked really hard”, reports the MailOnline
She said: “It’s freezing cold outside and people are homeless and these people [the Royals] have like houses to spare.
“It does sometimes become a little bit frustrating because I don’t see the purpose of all of that money going to this one entire family.”
After the clip was re-shared on Friday, many fans were quick to flood social media with their arguments against her views.
One wrote: “‘On Stacey Solomon criticising the Royal family…. it is a far more complicated argument than what is presented. But at least it opens the door to a proper debate on them…. which is needed…”
Another added: “I used to like Stacey Solomon, but not anymore after what she has said about the most loved Royal Family in the world. Coming from a Finn – you Brits don’t know how lucky & blessed you are! If Conservatives are the only party left defending the Royals, then they have my vote!”
An impassioned fan also commented: “The Royals do lots for charity, so spouting about homeless people and spare houses doesn’t mean the royal family don’t ‘have a point’. They were here way before ‘celebrities’ and that whole culture.”
“The irony of Stacey Solomon asking what the point of the Royal Family is…” a fan tweeted.
“Stacey Solomon complaining about the Royal Family and using the homeless argument, when she earns a lot of money and spent £1.2m on a house recently. Out of touch springs to mind…”
