Has a royal spokesman or the relevant Government spokesman ever equated membership of the Royal Family with the Civil List, or have you simply assumed/asserted a connection?
I should have thought that the Queen's invitation list to her annual Christmas lunch was pretty definitive, as I previously mentioned. In addition, I clearly recall group portraits of the Royal Family in the 1970s which included all of the descendants of the sons of Geoge V - photographs that were intended to be formal portraits of the Royal Family.
And before you allude to the Royal Family and the Royal House, may I say that in the UK that is a distinction without a difference.
