London Evening Standard: Anti-royalists plot to abolish Prince Charles’ Duchy of Cornwall

September 24, 2012

According to the London Evening Standard:

An anti-monarchy group is launching a campaign to “abolish” the Duchy of Cornwall in what it says is an attempt to make the royal family more accountable.

Their aim is to “get rid” of the private estate, which funds the public, charitable and private activities of Charles and his family.

Much of the Duchy’s land is in the South West of England, where the Prince and his family are regular visitors.

Republic chief executive Graham Smith said: “…this is a national issue and we’ll be campaigning on it up and down the country.”
