ARLINGTON, WASHINGTON DC: Former presidential adviser Stephen Miller recently expressed his disapproval of the British royal family marrying "common folk" on his Twitter profile. Miller, a 37-year-old far-right and anti-immigration activist, highlighted the royal family's tradition that has existed since the monarchy's foundation.

"Key to monarchy is its mystery. Key to its mystery is that monarchs descend from an ancient line of fabled kings & queens. Though it may not be apparent now, a longterm concern for UK monarchy will be if, due to marriages, future monarchs have same family trees as their subjects," Miller wrote. For generations, only members of other royal families have been permitted to marry other members of the royalty. Royal unions were frequently utilized to forge diplomatic ties with foreign countries and were regarded as having strategic value. Numerous members of the British royal family also wed their cousins, though the custom was discontinued in the 20th century.

No member of the British royal family had ever married a non-royal until 1937, when Queen Elizabeth II's uncle Edward, Duke of Windsor, who briefly held the throne as King Edward VIII, wed American divorcee Wallis Simpson. He was ordered to leave the throne as a result of the strained marriage at the time, and as a result, he served as king for just over a year in 1936.

After that, no member of the British royal family married a non-royal for a long 30 years, until Princess Margaret, Queen Elizabeth II's only sibling, wed British photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones in 1960. In recent years, British royals have married non-royal members more frequently. King Charles III wed Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005. Two other prominent royal marriages to commoners occurred in the decade of 2010. Prince William married Catherine Middleton in 2011 and Prince Harry got married in 2018 to Meghan Markle.

Miller added in a subsequent tweet, "Any system based on heredity privilege—whether in UK, India or anywhere—historically married within its 'social rank' to justify said privilege. Eg, if a Duke's family were not of 'noble' birth (a notion rejected of course in US) why would he get title/castle but not townspeople?"

Many individuals on Twitter denounced Miller's views in support for royals not getting married to non-royals by bringing up the issue of incest. One individual wrote, "That's a long way to post 'I love the monarchy for its incest,'" while another said, "So you're saying inbreeding is the ultimate key to the mystery of a monarchy?"

Others criticized Miller's entire point of view as racist, writing, "Basically - he is saying 'Key to racism is its mystery. Key to its mystery is that white people descend from an ancient line of fabled aryans. Though it may not be apparent now, a longterm concern for UK monarchy will be if, due to marriages, future monarchs have non white blood,'" and another agreeing wrote, "Clarified 😒."

One other person wrote, "Even when you try really really hard you are incapable of hiding that everything you talk about is white identity," to which another replied, "He's not trying to hide it." This other person, who called Miller's views "nonsense," wrote, "...Well, that's nonsense. There's nothing 'fabled' about the Windsor family tree. Don't be silly."
