Republican campaigners have called for a fresh debate on changing the national anthem, after press reaction to Jeremy Corbyn's decision not to sing during today's Battle of Britain commemorations.
The nation isn't celebrating the Queen's milestone, and nor should we, campaign group Republic has said.
The group has said keeping a job-for-life for life is not an achievement and instead reflects real need for radical democratic reform.
Campaign group Republic has criticised Brand Finance for again claiming the monarchy is worth billions to the British economy.
The group branded the claims a fantasy.
Republic's CEO Graham Smith said today:
Royal expenses and a call to take the Duchy of Cornwall away from Prince Charles will be among the issues discussed at the Republic annual conference this year.
For the first time the annual conference is being held in Bristol.
Campaigners have called on the Queen to end her deliberate and underhand interventions in politics.
The call comes after the Queen's controversial speech on European unity, made in Germany this week.
Campaigners have called on the Queen to permanently vacate Buckingham palace after reports that the royals may move out temporarily to allow for repairs.
A new report out this week has estimated the total annual cost of the monarchy at £333.9m, eight times the official figure.
Campaign group Republic has called on MPs to confront Prince Charles over his political interfering, following the release of a second batch of his letters.
Prince Charles is clearly lobbying to change government policy on a range of issues, campaign group Republic has said today.
While some people attempt the play down the content of the letters released today Republic has said they are clear evidence that Charles is not impartial.
As Prince Charles's letters are set to be released campaigners have repeated calls for the law to be changed - to allow for full disclosure of royal lobbying.
