H.R.H. Duke Franz of Bavaria (*14th July 1933) and the Crown of the Kingdom of Bavaria)
The Official Position of the Royal Stuart Society as determined by the following Statement of the Council on March 12th, 2019.
“The Royal Stuart Society recognises HRH the Duke of Bavaria as Head of the Royal House of Stuart. Under the terms of the Act of Settlement of 1701 all successive Heads of the Royal House of Stuart have been excluded from the de facto line of succession, which vests in the present House of Windsor.
No Head of the Royal House of Stuart since 1807 has made any claim to the British Throne. The Society makes no claim for the Head of the Royal House of Stuart that he does not make himself. The Council insists on every respect being shown to HM Queen Elizabeth II asHead of State.”
