Andrew Mitchell MP: Steady further progress on Sutton’s re-assertion of its Royal status but significant hurdles remain


Andrew Mitchell MP, said “I am hugely grateful to the many Suttonians who have trawled through old drawers and files to find evidence of Sutton’s Royal status.

“My recent meetings with the College of Arms, the Cabinet Office, the Crown Office and the Palace as well as the Garter King of Arms have been immeasurably strengthened by the research undertaken by so many individual residents of Sutton Coldfield.

“We have now secured six of the seven Charter Trustees who will be needed if we are successful. However, we are looking for a Lawyer who is practising or has practised in Sutton Coldfield to be our seventh Charter Trustee.”

The six are:

  • Lord Lieutenant Paul Sabapathy
  • Rt Hon Andrew Mitchell MP
  • Lord Norman Fowler
  • Hon Alderman David Roy OBE
  • Gary Phelps, Editor of the Sutton Coldfield Observer
  • Elizabeth Allison, Chair of Sutton Coldfield Civic Society
