Thornton was introduced to Adammia by Emperor Adam I via the University of Birmingham Liberal Democrats in 2017. In June 2017, she was made a dame, and she became a honourary citizen in June 2018. In October 2018, she ran for Delegate of the Colonies on behalf of the new Liberal-Moderate Party, but lost to Storm Party candidate Sir Juliano Saunders. Subsequently she was appointed Duchess of Greater Tytannia, and became a backbench member of the Ruling Council.
In October 2019, she stood in the first ever general election to the House of Citizens, at the #4 position on the Lib-Mod candidate list. She was elected, and was subsequently appointed as Minister of Citizenship and Information in the government of Lord Charles Michael.
In September 2020, her domestic partner, Lord Billy Thompson, leader of the Red Green Alliance, persuaded her to defect from the Lib-Mods to the RGA. She subsequently stood at the #4 position on the RGA list in the 2020 general election and was not elected, but the party appointed her to the House to fill the seat vacated by Alex Nettle after he resigned hours after the result was declared. She subsequently became Minister of Foreign Affairs in the Second Saunders Cabinet.
