Britain to cover up Royal affairs

The British government is to introduce new regulations that prevent any scrutiny of the Royal Family's letters, emails, documents and finances.


The all-out protection under changes to the Freedom of Information Act is meant to put a lid on what is related to the Queen, her heir Prince Charles and the second in line to the throne Prince Williams.
The move follows recent embarrassing revelations about a number of financial abuses by the Royal Family including Queen's move to pay for Buckingham Palace's heating costs through a state poverty fund.
This comes as, the brief implementation of the Freedom of Information Act on the Royal Family affairs also disclosed details of Charles's lobbying to influence the public issues and the decisions of the government.
The government's decision has proved controversial as activists raised serious questions about the move.
