What Happens in the Palace Stays in the Palace...

LONDON — What happens in the palace stays in the palace.

A new British law that took effect Wednesday makes Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles and Prince William exempt from freedom of information laws, meaning many private details of their lives won't be made public for decades.

Justice Secretary Ken Clarke says the exemption will protect the monarch's private conversations with politicians and officials – but information advocates say it will make it even harder to hold to account a royal family that costs taxpayers millions a year.

  1. Bravo, good for them! Once again people bring up cost, how typical. These people always seem to forget the millions the Royals bring into the UK.
    Finally, a law preventing people from running their mouths for the sake of a buck.
