Greetings to you all!

Once again Christmas is almost upon us and time to look back over the year which has been another busy one for the Principality. A year that I am very happy with.

We must thank all of our representatives around the world who devote much time and energy in the support and advancement of the Principality. Without this support little would be achieved and our ever strengthening position would not advance as well as it does.
Thank you to all of our people, our Subjects, for your efforts and we look forward to continuing with you throughout the coming year to achieving even greater things on behalf of this great land.

Here in Nain we now begin to wind down so that we can celebrate the festive season and to take a short, well earned break, in order to return in 2008 ready and refreshed to continue on our journey.
A reminder that our borders will be closed Dec 25th & 26th in order that our own Christmas family celebrations may take place. This year I am told this will involve the presence of around 25 Family for Christmas dinner.

We will return to full working capacity from 7th January, so please remain patient if waiting answers to mail or e-mails or awaiting decisions etc from our various offices as our staff truly deserve their well earned, though short break.

Our thoughts go out to all those people of all Nations serving in areas of conflict and strife with the wish that peace may return soon to those areas and that people will one day soon learn to live in peace and harmony and understanding with each other.
My thanks to our own, serving in the Principality Defence Forces and associate organisations around the world, for their humanitarian efforts in their own regions, assisting the less fortunate.
Well done!

Please remember to stay safe, drive carefully and most importantly give thought and help to those less fortunate than yourself and let's all help make this Holiday Season one of true "Joy and Happiness".

Merry Christmas to you all from Myself and Princess Shirley and all of us here at the Principality, may you all enjoy the holiday season with your families in a safe and wonderful manner.
We wish all a joyous and profitable New Year that brings all your dreams to fruition.

Our Best Wishes to you all!

Greetings to you all!

In contemplating the law with regards our actions to obtain a Treaty between the Commonwealth of Australia and the Principality of Hutt River I came across an anomaly of such size and proportion that I have expended a great deal of time and energies delving deep into the Australian and British laws.
The deeper that I looked the more convinced I was of a great injustice having been done to the Australian people - an injustice that is of great concern to me and the Citizens of the Principality - and should be of great concern to all Australians!

BEFORE a Treaty between The Principality of Hutt River and the Commonwealth of Australia can be considered, the issue of lapsed citizenship for Australians born before January 1st 1949 must be dealt with.

 When Great Britain promulgated the British Nationality Act 1949 effective from January 1, 1949, citizenship was removed from all people of the British Colonies, including Australia, making them stateless persons.

The Australian Parliament compounded the error by passing the Australian Citizenship Act 1948, which stipulated that all persons born in Australia after and including January 26, 1949, from then had Australian citizenship. This then left some eight million people without citizenship.

In 1973 the Australian Parliament amended the Australian Citizenship Act and removed all reference to “Britishness”. 
Anyone born before January 26, 1949 became a stateless person, including the present Prime Minister and Governor General.

This means that no Treaty signed by a stateless person could be legally held to be binding on the People of Australia. 

It is worthy to consider that all those who went to war for Australia and on their return were generally cheered as conquering heroes – some of them died, many have died since, others are still alive – were rewarded by the removal of their citizenship. 
I feel strongly about this. 
I know many who fought for their country, Australia, I was there with them! 

I call for an apology to be made by the Sovereign and for the situation to be rectified.

We would be willing to meet whoever has lawful authority to assist to resolve all matters whereby a lawful treaty might be effected.


Our Best Wishes to you all!

I, along with my wife Princess Shirley, would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the magnificent Celebrations that were held here in the Principality and for the attendance and communications received from so many friends around the world on both the occasion of our Diamond Wedding Anniversary and the 37th Anniversary of the Principality.
All came together well to provide us and our family with some wonderful memories.

THANKYOU to you all!

As many of you may be aware, I recently spent 5 days in Geraldton Regional Hospital in Western Australia with a severe bronchial infection which, I am informed, approached pneumonia which when coupled with my emphysema was very worrying and I was extremely ill.

It is my desire to express my sincere and heartfelt thanks to the Doctors, nurses and general staff of Ward 11 at the Geraldton Regional Hospital for their prompt and constant attention and vigilance as well as the most professional care one could want, the result of which enabled me to return home to the Principality where I am now on the road to recovery.

Our Best Wishes to you all!

21st March 2007

Another anniversary is almost upon us, though this year brings a change in that as well as 21st April 2007 being the 37th Anniversary of Secession, the 19th April 2007 is also the 60th, or Diamond Wedding Anniversary of myself and HRH Princess Shirley with us having been married at St John's Church of England, Fremantle, Western Australia on 19th April 1947

This year the Dual Anniversaries main celebrations and formalities will take place over the Easter Weekend of 7th & 8th April, with additional celebrations during the weekend of 21st April and to help us commemorate these events we will be releasing a special "Dual Celebration Coin", a magnificent 50mm coin in brass alloy, finished in hand polished Silver and 24K Gold plate as well as a special set of 5 coins bearing the coat of Arms of each of the Males entitled "Armorial Bearings of the Five Princes".
It has been some time since we last minted a coin so it was decided that this year's Dual Anniversary was the time to rectify this.

I will also be releasing a few copies of my latest book entitled "Paradise" which concerns "Nature, Intelligence and Evolution".

The weekend will also see the presence of a Television Crew from Channel ARD-1 Germany, who will be here filming over the entire celebration weekend, this same TV channel was last in the Principality 20 years ago and on that occasion spent a week with us filming and interviewing etc.

One of the highlights of the weekend will be some Investitures that will be taking place in the Chapel of Nain on Saturday 07/04/2007; these are awards to some very deserving individuals.

On the weekend of the 21st April we will be having the pleasure of a visit from a number of our European Representatives and also another television film crew, this time from France. It should be noted that French Television has also previously filmed within the Principality.

On both of these weekends various other functions and events will be happening, these events to be advertised via the website and other avenues and we would like to extend our invitation to all to attend and help us celebrate this special "Dual Celebration"!

Our Best Wishes to you all!

Happy New Year to all!

2006 was a very busy year for Hutt and saw many projects completed whilst other projects were commenced and others advanced further on the drawing boards.

The new reception building is now complete and the campers kitchen area about 3/4 finished but already operational with a gas BBQ.

The building of the 'Pyramid Of Hutt', a 5.3 metre timber frame pyramid atop brick footings and containing a Kings Chamber, or as it is called by many today, a "healing table" has been completed and you will shortly read of it on the website.

People are welcome to avail themselves of the Pyramid Energy free of charge during their visit and many have already spent the night under its form whilst even more have sat within and on the "healing table" meditating.
The Pyramid has been constructed alongside the arcade and is a both a project and an on-going study by the Royal College of Advanced Research.

We will also be announcing shortly, the availability of "charged" solid crystal pyramids and a wide range of other crystal tools and formations all "charged" within the 'Pyramid of Hutt'.

In late 2006 I did cause an expedition to venture into the mountains of India and the Himalayas to gather a large collection of specifically chosen crystals, some of which we have had cut and carved and then hand polished into beautiful solid pyramids of crystal.
The first shipment of these crystals has arrived and should be on show and available to visitors from the souvenir shop from 18th January.

Each piece of crystal will be accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity card signed by myself, detailing the crystal piece and the fact that it has been "charged" in the 'Pyramid of Hutt', there  will also be available a range of lovely crystal chip bracelets "charged" at only $5.00 a piece.

Many projects are already underway for completion throughout 2007, projects which include the release by April (date to be announced) of a special collectors limited edition 37th anniversary commemorative coin and within a similar time-frame, the release of a set of 5 coins depicting my Arms of Achievement as well as the Arms of our 4 sons.

Our Best Wishes to you all!
