Princess Eugenie’s Wedding Does Not Sit Well With Brits As They Sign Petitions To Avoid Taxpayers Money Being Used To Fund The Wedding

It is no news that another royal wedding is to befall us this month, as Princess Eugenie is set to tie the knot with her beau, Jack Brooksbank. Well, not a lot of people are pleased about that.
Princess Eugenie, daughter of Prince Andrew and the granddaughter of her royal majesty Queen Elizabeth II, might have her big day ruined.
The masses are kicking against outrageous wedding costs imposed on them, and with the many changes that have been seen lately, one would wonder if the strongest existing monarchy is under threat.
It all started when an anti-monarchy organization tried to rally the support of the public in opposing her wedding security bill, which was estimated at 2 million pounds, to be funded from taxpayers money.
This is surprising, as the royal family had witnessed an event earlier this year with a cost beating that of Princess Eugenie many times over. So, what could the problem be?
Republic, the headliner of the campaign, said;
'This money could be better spent and the government should act in the interest of the taxpayers and public services by calling spending to be limited. The Royals have shown time and time again that they can't keep their spending in check. Republic is calling the government to publish a report of all cost to taxpayers so we know how our money is being spent. I wish Eugene and Jack all the best on their wedding day but a debate on taxpayer funding of the minor royals is long overdue '
It is of no surprise that the campaign has received the massive backing from the masses, especially considering the fact that Princess Eugenie is negligent to her official royal duties. She hardly shows up at official events and taxpayers are wondering why they have to pay so much for someone who gives so little.
So far, there has been a jaw-dropping amount of 18000 petitions against the royal wedding.
The Princess is supposed to get married to her fiance, Jack Brooksbank, on the 12th of October 2018, and the location is the reputable St. George's chapel.
The royal family is definitely planning a big ceremony, as it is believed the soon-to-be-wedded couple have hired the services of the famous Beckham's planner.
Her Royal Majesty, the Queen, is footing most of the bill, but it seems there has been a lot of silent grunts on how royals enjoy their privileges, and this can be confirmed by the thousands of petitions against the spending, which is relatively small compared to past events.
With the support and attention this campaign has garnered, it is unclear whether there may be a public display of disaffection the wedding day.
This revelation begs the question: Are these petitions about one wedding or is it a bigger fight against the previledges of the greatest monarchy of the modem world?
