Actor and monarchist Russell Crowe recently bought out nearly all of the Sydney Antique Centre's collection of historical memorabilia relating to the British royal family – including china marking the coronation of King George in 1911, reports Julie Power from Sydney's Sun Herald and other newspapers in Fairfax Media.
Clearly an excellent journalist, Ms Power checked with us and our site to satisfy herself that Mr Crowe can be properly described as a monarchist.
He is seen here at the charity premiere of Master and Commander. A noted actor and film producer he has been denied Australian citizenship not once but twice.
Why? Because he has done what great film actors do – spent time in other countries.
Put aside his monarchism – what on earth is going on if we deny citizenship to such a man who shows such interest in our country?
