Avoid the myths!

A lot of myths and misunderstandings are recycled through our news media.  We ask that journalists spend some time looking at our Monarchy Myth Buster and Know the Facts pages.

Please keep three things in mind: 

  1. The monarchy is a political institution, steeped in power and vested interest
  2. There is no evidence that the monarchy is good for tourism or a benefit to the UK economy
  3. Broadcasters have a duty to report the monarchy impartially and in the same manner they would report any other political issue.

Latest press release

9 April 2019

Prince Charles, the Queen and other royals should publicly condemn the Sultan of Brunei for human rights abuses, campaigners have said today.

The call comes amid a growing backlash against the state's decision to introduce death by stoning for gay sex and other so-called crimes.
