Legendary Smiths frontman Morrissey isn't holding back sharing how he really feels about the royal family.

No stranger to controversy (or anti-royal comments) the rocker is once again slamming the British monarchy, and this time he's taking digs at Prince Harry and the entire royal family.

"I wasn't surprised by Harry in Vegas because he's always been an absolute idiot," Morrissey said in an interview with the Herald Sun in Australia in reference to Harry's infamous nude photo scandal. "The monarchy is foremost a business, and it's important to them that the British public continue to finance the excessive luxurious lifestyles of the now quite enormous, wasteful and useless 'royal' family. I find it very sad."

The outspoken musician didn't stop there and even the beloved Kate Middleton couldn't escape Morrissey's insults:

"They are the most dysfunctional, unpleasant and arrogant people on the planet. A sour soap opera, and they should resign and retire," he added.

And in case you were unclear about his feelings, he went even further on his royal rant:

"Can you imagine how the Prime Minister of Argentina viewed Harry in Vegas? Or the Pope? Or the Archbishop of Canterbury?"

Also of note, the singer, also an animal rights advocate, claims he and former bandmate Johnny Marr were offered a 100 percent-vegetarian event if they would reunite as the Smiths at Coachella.
