In 2012 The British Monarchist Society became an official registered company after several years of operating as an online forum for monarchists with an interest in the British Crown. The formation of the company was the result of a thought, which evolved through the years into a well-developed idea that eventually grew into a tangible organisation originally named the British Monarchist Society. In 2015 the addition of a separate entity, the British Monarchist Foundation was added to the British Monarchists family. Now as of 2019, both entities have been combined into one, promoting education about the Monarchy as well as undertaking an education programme. The creation of the British Monarchists Society (Members) Ltd. incorporates the original purpose of the British Monarchist Society as well as the charitable giving practices the British Monarchist Foundation was created to undertake. The British Monarchists Society [Members] Ltd. is the result of the combination of both the educational and charitable entities.
The Founder, Thomas Mace-Archer-Mills, originally operated the British Monarchist Society as a virtual platform on Facebook for people to come together and share their thoughts and ideas about the British monarchy. For several years this virtual organisation was successful before he finally created the Limited by Guarantee Company in the year of Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee (2012). His idea to bring the defence and support of the Palace into the forefront of an overwhelmingly silent majority within the United Kingdom, was met with much enthusiasm from Politicians, Celebrities and supporters of the Monarchy alike.
British Monarchists Corporate Time-line
The British Monarchist Society
The British Monarchist Society was originally established over a decade ago and matriculated into an official company in April of 2012. The Society came about as an educated and popular response to the rising tide of republicanism with in the United Kingdom, which had gone largely unquestioned and unbalanced. It has been well known for a long time that the Palace does not defend itself, and this is something that the Founder thought needed to change for the greater good and existence of the institution. In understanding the reasoning of the Palace to often remain silent when being attacked, it was Thomas Mace-Archer-Mills who decided that a voice for the silent majority must be projected loud and clear, which prompted him to create the British Monarchist brand as it exists today. As the British Monarchist Society grew and supporters of the Monarchy took to the “British Monarchists” brand, the need eventually came for a fundamental review of, and overhaul to, the operations of the Society, which led to the evolution of the British Monarchists brand, the implementation of a charity and the addition of several other entities, which saw the need for the Society to change from a social grouping of like-minded peoples, to the functioning trading arm of the British Monarchists Brand.
The British Monarchist Foundation
The British Monarchist Foundation existed to advance such general charitable purposes (according to the law of England and Wales) as the Trustees saw fit from time to time. The Foundation also had a particular interest in, but not limited to, advancing the education of the general public, in particular young people, through the donation of resources to establishments of an educational nature and by making grants and awards to students, where appropriate, in full or part-time education. The British Monarchist Foundation also made grants to general charitable organisations (through application) within the scope of the Foundation if approved by the Trustees. The British Monarchist Foundation was instrumental in sending educational tools to primary and secondary schools throughout the United Kingdom as well as Canada and America, which continues under the British Monarchist Society (Members) Ltd.
The British Monarchists Society (Members) Ltd. [BMS]
The British Monarchists Society (Members) Ltd. [BMS], like each component of the British Monarchists family, is a volunteer organisation comprised of several members hailing from all regions of the United Kingdom, the Realms and abroad that realise and understand the importance of the Monarchy in a modern British State. The member base supports the cause to defend the integrity of the Crown, the Monarchy and more importantly our Most Sovereign Lady Queen Elizabeth II, from groups and organisations with strong republican agendas, ties and backgrounds whom seek to destroy Britain as we have known it to exist for centuries; in favour of a republic that will eventually bring less stability to the peoples of our great nation. Our members believe in our history, our present, and our future, as a Constitutional Monarchy.
Those belonging to the BMS, as British Monarchists, stand as a single body, united (regardless of political party affiliation) in our efforts to defend our cause, which is to protect, honour, and serve our Monarch, The Queen, from the eminent dangers of a hostile and unstable radical republican agenda. We seek to preserve and protect our history and system of governance, whilst striving through this organisation to bring those individuals whom are educated in how the government and the Crown work together to the forefront, to further support and teach the importance of the role of our Monarchy to the future generations of Britain, that will shape our future as we move into the 21st century.
The British Monarchists Society continues to advance education and make donations through educational tools to primary and secondary schools. From time to time, the BMS continues to attend debates, hold lectures, and further contribute to educational talks and presentations when asked. The organisation continues to excel in the areas of charitable, community and social giving as the British Monarchist Society and British Monarchist Foundation did before. Creating this organisation out of the two previous entities mentioned, we are able to fulfil all of our commitments within the structure of one new patriotic and educational organisation. Today, the British Monarchists Society is the leading name and marketing arm/company of the British Monarchists family. The British Monarchists Society is registered with Companies House as well as HMRC with a V.A.T. number.
