In this episode, host Emma Revell, IEA Head of Public Affairs, speaks to two friends of the IEA to discuss the monarchy and House of Lords. James Price, former Special Adviser to the Leader of the House of Lords, and Rebecca Lowe, PhD candidate and former Director of FREER, debate the question “Does the hereditary principle have any place in British public life?”. Is it right that the 92 hereditary peers legislate for us by virtue of being an oldest son? Does the popularity of the Queen and Prince William guard the royal family against criticism of their privileged position in British public life? Let us know what you think on social media and in the YouTube comment section.
