“I think if this slow movement towards multiculturalism and multireligion continues, we will lose the monarchy, because in the end, I don’t think it is true to itself,” Gavin Ashenden, who served as the queen’s chaplain. from 2008 to 2017, he told Britain’s GB News on Sunday.
Ashenden made his comments in response to the king’s first royal christmas message since he assumed the throne after his mother’s death in September.
“The problem is that it’s a bit like watching a wonderful ship slowly sink below the waterline, and at some point what you want to do is keep it from sinking and make sure it floats,” Ashenden said. “And I don’t think the monarchy can float if it becomes a multicultural, multifaith monarchy.”

Acknowledging that King Charles III did “fantastically well” with his first Christmas speech, Ashenden said British subjects have consequently witnessed “a very slow and gradual change from being a Christian monarchy to a multi-religious one.”

Ashenden, who eventually left the Church of England and converted to Roman Catholicism, also wrote an opinion piece in the catholic herald warning that Christianity in the UK “is bowing under the relentless daily assault that an increasingly hostile secularism is directing towards it”.
If King Charles III refuses to uphold his nation’s historic faith, Ashenden predicted in his article that he will have “sowed the seeds of destruction for the House of Windsor.”
