Daisy Ridley, who became the breakout star in 2015 with her role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), is currently gearing up for the release of the final installment in the Skywalker saga - Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Along with Daisy, Episode IX also sees the return of Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, John Boyega as Finn and Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron. Judging by the trailers and TV spots of the movie that have come out so far, we can expect nothing but fireworks from this highly-awaited J.J. Abrams directorial.

During a recent conversation with British GQ about The Rise of Skywalker, Daisy was asked about her character Rey being so powerful and pivotal in the Star Wars franchise owing to her humble roots. Ridley, who is an anti-elitist countered this point by making a shocking revelation. "I don’t massively care about the royal family. I am not a royalist," the 27-year-old actress shared with the magazine. While she thinks that Buckingham Palace is great, Daisy also points out that it's an unused building. Recalling an article she read about The Queen using six rooms in her palace, Ridley questioned how is that a good thing referring to the palace as a prime real estate.

As much as Daisy doesn't care about the royal family, she is deeply sympathetic to the situation that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently in. When it comes to the British press' treatment towards the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Ridley termed it as "truly shameful."
