Defender of Faiths
The monarch is the Head of the Church of England and under the Act of Settlement has to be a Protestant. This is religious discrimination writ large. In a democracy it has no place. The monarch’s eldest male heir succeeds to the throne. This is sexual discrimination and in a democracy should have no place.
The monarch should be the “Defender of faiths”This course of action is favoured by the Prince of Wales.
