The Privy Council of Granby, officially His Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council of Granby, or known simply as the Privy Council (PC), is a formal body of advisors to the Monarch of Granby. Its members are made up of Members of the House of Commons, Council of State and other appointed members.

The Privy Council formally advises the Sovereign on the exercise of their power. The Council advises the Sovereign on the issuing of Royal Decrees and Orders-in-Council.


The Privy Council was founded on 27 March 2023 (as the Provisional Council) and is one of the oldest bodies in the Kingdom of Granby. It was established under the directive of the Cabinet.


Oath and initiation rights

To be initiated into the Privy Council appointed members take an oath in the House of Lords to fully take office. The oath is as follows.

I, __________, do solemnly and sincerely swear (declare) that I will act as a faithful and loyal servant of His Majesty King Mark, in my capacity as a member of His Majesty's Privy Council for Granby. I will faithfully, honestly, and truthfully express my feelings and opinions on all matters dealt with, debated and resolved in the Council. I will keep secret all that is entrusted to me or revealed in this capacity, or whatever is secretly dealt with in Council. I will at all times act as befits a faithful and loyal servant of His Majesty. So God help me.

Privy counsellors can choose to affirm their allegiance in similar terms, should they prefer not to take a religious oath.
