Royal spokespersons have confirmed, on the 8th February 2021, that the Royal Consent rules are "purely formal". We should make this official.

Their removal would serve to streamline government processes saving time by cutting red tape.

Keeping the consent rules as they are is only leaving a backdoor open which a norm-breaking royal could potentially abuse.

Why leave these rules in place which carry potential risk of abuse but serve no benefit to UK citizens and our elected representatives.
