Nobody should have a religious adherence imposed upon them, nor should anybody lose their job for freely expressing their true feelings on questions of religion.

The monarch, therefore, must be permitted to follow any denomination of Christianity, or Islam, Judaism, Sikhism, or any other faith, or be non-religious as his or her conscience dictates.

Why is this idea important?

Freedom of religious conscience is a human right, and monarchs are human beings as much as anybody else.

Our constitution should be robust enough that it does not rely on a single individual concealing their true convictions on spiritual questions.
