Resource description

With royal wedding celebrations now underway, it is perhaps a good time to rexamine the role of the royal family and the aristocracy in the UK. Bart Cammaerts finds that this Ancien Régime is still very much in control – 6000 aristocratic families own the vast majority of the UK’s land, supported by the leasehold system and the House of Lords.
