''What is a Privy Council and does it affect me?'' Read on and find out more....

A privy council is a body that advises the head of state of a nation, especially in a monarchy like ours. It is an important part of the Westminster System with the original being Her Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council in the United Kingdom. Several other "Privy Councils" have advised other Sovereigns, similar to our own.

The Council of State is the Privy Council of The Lagoan Isles. Chaired by the Sovereign, the council comprises all cabinet ministers and the Crown Prince or Hereditary Princess when he or she is of age. When unavailable, the Sovereign is represented by a Lord Protector. The Council of State is therefore the main link between the government and the monarch; and enables the Royal family to respect political descissions and Cabinet ministers to engage the mood of the royal household.

The first official council meeting took place, in the presence of the royal family on the 16th August 2005; the first day of claimed independance. These minutes have set a presidence; and The Grand Duke announce shortly after that Privy Council will meet the second Tuesday of every month; unless this day falls on a National Holiday.
