Tell me about … the British Monarchist Society

The British Monarchist Society is the UK’s premier Monarchist organisation, that works closely with The Crown Chronicles. You may well have heard of them, but who are they and what exactly do they do?

The society supports tradition, promotes heritage, defends the Crown and embraces charity in the UK, and is based in Westminster. A small team helps to provide a voice for Monarchists, of which there are many across the country, and to challenge ignorance and misinformation about Constitutional Monarchy.

I spoke with Chairman, Thomas Mace Archer Mills, about the British Monarchist Society.

Thomas said: “The society exists to bring the people closer to their Crown by furthering understanding, education, and brotherhood. It is an association of people who understand Constitutional Monarchy see its benefits and support the duties and roles of Her Majesty.”

Monarchy is something close to the hearts of many, and the society’s patrons come from all walks of life: politicians, entertainers, singers and actors all endorse the BMS as they support the British Monarchy, and the system of government that we have in the UK.

Boris Johnson, Sir David Amess, Zak Goldsmith, Patti Boulaye, Winnie Kap, High Commissioner for Papua New Guinea, Richard Stone, renowned Royal Portrait artist, Dr. Vincent Wong, Harley Street plastic surgeon, Sarbel Michael, Greek singer, and actors Rupert Everett and John Barrowman.

You too, can show your support: the society is a membership scheme, and there are four stages of membership, depending on how much money you wish to commit to the cause. These are: pearl, ruby, sapphire and black diamond. Until 17th August, membership is on sale, but this offer continues until Wednesday 19th August for readers of The Crown Chronicles!

Later this year, the society is holding a concert for The Queen, to mark her achievement becoming the longest serving British Monarch in history! Confirmed acts include Collabro, S Club 7, Aled Jones, Nadia Ford, Rebecca Ferguson, and the Orion Orchestra.

Nothing has been planned by the Palace or government to mark this historic occasion, and so the British Monarchist Society has taken it upon themselves to celebrate for Her Majesty. Members of the Royal Family have also been invited to attend.

There is no other organisation as proactive as the BMS, which even has its own foundation, the British Monarchist Foundation, with a Red Box programme for education about Monarchy and its benefits.

While the BMS is not officially endorsed by the Palace (besides patronages and Royal Warrants, no other organisations are Royally endorsed), it is by far the leading group of its kind.
