British actor Alan Cumming declared his intention to return the knighthood of the Order of the British Empire, which he was awarded for merit in the arts in 2009, the publication reports IndieWire.

According to the star of “Spy Kids” and "X-Men 2", lately he has radically revised his attitude towards the British royal family, which he called "toxic".

"The death of the queen and the conversations that followed   the role of the monarchy and how the way the British Empire profited from indigenous worldwide really opened my eyes", — Cumming admitted.

The actor announced his desire to return the Order of the British Empire on January 27, 2023 — on the day of his 68th birthday.

Recently, British TV presenter and restaurateur John Oliver also admitted that he refused to receive a knightly order last year.
