The intervention of the Duke of Cambridge into the EU Referendum debate

What is one to make of the intervention of the Duke of Cambridge into the EU Referendum debate? (for it is fairly obvious that it was an interevention):  http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/feb/16/prince-william-appears-to-signal-support-for-remaining-in-eu

Has he thought through the impications for the monarchy if we remain in the EU?

What is the point of having a Sovereign that is not actually sovereign?

The British monarchy becomes reduced to the kind of Eurotrash celebrity princelings that besmirch the national life of Spain and Monaco.

That would never suit us.

Support would inevitably drain away.

Prince William needs to understand that if we stay in the EU the monarchy is on the way out, one way or another.
