Former SMITHS frontman Morrissey hates the British royal family and Prime Minister Tony Blair.

The GIRLFRIEND IN A COMA singer - famed for his wry lyrics - appears in a new fly-on-the-wall documentary for British TV network CHANNEL 4 to reveal the full extent of his disdain for the British establishment.

Morrissey calls the royals "evil", adding, "(Prince) CHARLES has no intelligence."

The songwriter also speaks out about his battles with mental problems, saying, "I suffer greatly from depression.

"It was very serious when I was teenager, and when I was in The Smiths. So I took prescribed drugs for a long time."

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING MORRISSEY is broadcast 8 June (03) in Britain.
