The new Prince and Princess of Wales want to deepen "trust and respect" with the people of Wales. Survey for @itvwales: 66% support William having Prince of Wales title BUT only 19% think he should have a big investiture ceremony like his father in 1969. itv.com/news/wales/2022-09-2…

The ‘CIIIR’ is the Sovereign’s monogram and is the personal property of the King. C for Charles III for the third R for Rex (Latin for King) and a representation of the Crown. A Scottish version of the cypher features the Scottish Crown (and approved by Lord Lyon King of Arms) 👑

A Budget for those earning over £155,000 per year says @PJTheEconomist Not, therefore, a Budget for 99% of the country 👇
Worth repeating. Take all the tax changes coming in over next few years and: If your income is < £155k, you lose If your income is > £155k you win If your income > £1m you gain more than £40,000
