Actor Malcolm McDowell has blasted the British royal family - branding the institution "stupid".
The A Clockwork Orange star has been living in America for years - and is not missing his native the U.K.
He says, "Only in England can you be lower middle class. Royalty still has us fainting anyway - it's so stupid! And why?
"The Queen's a sweet person but, blimey, we're meant to worship that?"
