Plus de = no more?

"Plus de royauté, etc." Why does that mean "no more," w/out any grammatical indicator of negation, like "ne plus?"

Hi Drew,

Just as you can say -

'pas de' + noun

as in: 

Pas de pain, pas d'argent, pas de mal ( no bread, no money, no harm)

You can use 'plus de' + noun to indicate no more -

...plus de royauté ... plus de privilèges no more monarchy...no more privileges.

Hope this helps!
