NOVELIST Hilary Mantel has claimed that there are only two generations left in Britain's monarchy, and thus Prince George will never be crowned king.
Although Ms Mantel says that she admires the determination of Queen Elizabeth, she feels that the modernisation of the world means that the royals time is running out.
The novelist, who previously branded Kate Middleton a 'plastic, jointed doll' with 'no personality of her own' spoke to The Times about her prediction for the future of the monarchy.
As the article points out, the 69-year-old is accused of hating England, and Brexit voters since she stated she wanted to become an Irish citizen.
The novelist, best known for her Wolf Hall trilogy which followed the rise of blacksmith's son Thomas Cromwell to Henry VIII's chief minister,to his downfall and execution, says she admires the Queen's determination.
Speaking ofQueen Elizabeth,95 and Prince Charles she said: "I think they do it as well as anyone possibly could take it as seriously as anyone could."
However, she then went on to say that she predicted the monarchy would only last another two generations due to modernisation.
"It's very hard to understand the thinking behind the monarchy in the modern world when people are just seen as celebrities," she said.
She predicted that Prince George, third in line to the throne after his great grandmother, Queen Elizabeth 95, grandfather Charles 72, and father William 38, would never be anointed, king.
As reported by the Daily Star, whilst surveys show that the majority of Brits support the monarchy and respect the Queen, an online poll in May showed that young people would prefer a head of state.
