At a fringe event for the Labour conference that Jeremy Corbyn attended, posters mocking Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle as “Princess Kkkaren” and “Queen Sparkle” were shown.
In addition to making reference to the prominent white nationalist movement, the headline called Kate a “Karen”—a slang word for a woman who is considered rude and arrogant.
According to Mail+, another billboard with a faux front page of The Observer shows King Charles III with ears that were altered, along with the statement “Not My King.”
At The World Transformed, a Left-wing political event held close to the Labour Party’s annual conference in Liverpool, anti-monarchy posters were displayed on the walls of a booth.
At the fringe event earlier today, which was also attended by top party officials, the former Labour leader, 73, was seen striding beside the wall packed.
It comes after he described as “very, very weird” the idea of party members singing God Save the King during the convention in Liverpool.
After current leader Keir Starmer and party officials decided that God Save the King will be sung at the conference for the first time in its history after the death of the Queen, Mr. Corbyn said that doing so was “excessively nationalist.”
The posters were being sold by “Artist Taxi Driver,” a performance artist and active demonstrator, who had positioned himself next to a booth for the Peace and Justice Project, led by the late Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.
While serving as an Independent MP in the Commons, Mr. Corbyn is still a party member.
King Charles and the Princess of Wales came under fire on pages of the Daily Mail and other publications that were drawn over for the coverage of Her Majesty’s burial.
The Duchess of Sussex was referred to as “Queen Sparkles” in one doctored spread including images of her and the Princess of Wales, while the Princess of Wales was referred to as “Princess KKKaren.”
Following Queen Elizabeth II’s State Funeral at Westminster Abbey, the Princess of Wales rides behind the State Gun Carriage with the monarch’s casket.
On other edited pages, a headline that read “Too sad to tell you why” made fun of the mourning period for the late Queen Elizabeth II.
Witnesses said that Mr. Corbyn passed past the posters, which were being sold for £10 apiece, for a short while.
The “original artwork” was put up for sale online last week by the artist, also known as Mark McGowan, for £70.
“Despite the widely publicized singing of the national song, once again the mask slips when it comes to the Labour Party and its followers,” said Jake Berry, head of the Conservative Party.
“It’s a travesty that these disgusting posters are allowed to be shown on the edges of Labour’s conference, and it is beyond comprehension that Labour supporters are enjoying this reprehensible material only weeks after the passing of Her late Majesty,” the statement reads.
The newspapers were not supporting the Peace and Justice Project position, according to sources close to Mr. Corbyn.
A version of the arcade game Doom, which lets you battle former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, was also observed being played by Mr. Corbyn.
Mr. Corbyn loved the game, according to the project’s creator, who unveiled it during the festival.
Andy Burnham, the mayor of Greater Manchester, and a number of Labour MPs from the Left-wing are other figures from the party who will be at the festival, but it is unclear whether they have seen the display.
To get their opinion on the stall’s contents, organizers from The World Transformed were called.
