Interviews with Royal Expert Thomas Mace-Archer-Mills, and Founder of Rivermont Records Bryan Wright

May 30th, 2022

On today's show, we have Royal Expert, Commentator, and founder of The Monarchists ( Thomas J. Mace-Archer-Mills.

He's the visionary creator of EIIR: The Platinum Record, a Jubilee Anthem, that was released on the Queen's 96th Birthday (4/21/22), honoring Her Majesty for her unprecedented 70-year reign. Thomas will be speaking about this and all things The Royal Family.     

Thomas is the Founder, Visionary, and Director of the British Monarchists Society, President of the Centre for British Royal Studies, Editor-in-Chief of Crown & Country Magazine, creator of Crown & Country Radio, a Freeman of the City of London and a member of the Order of St. Thomas of Acon. In addition to the aforementioned, Thomas runs his own consultancy group. As a Royal Consultant for Protocol to the Princely House of Their Highnesses, Prince Waldermar, Princess Antonia, and Prince Mario-Max of Schaumburg-Lippe (a branch of Europe's oldest Royal family going back to the Viking Kings and the Royal Household of Denmark since 936. His Highness Prince Waldermar of Schaumburg-Lippe is in the line of succession to the British throne), Thomas further works with other international companies, businesses and Royal households. Mace-Archer-Mills has further carried out consultancy duties for, and not limited to, the Serbian Royal family on a series of occasions, most notably the 2017 Royal wedding of Prince Philip of Serbia.  Professionally, Thomas is a Consultant, Royal historian, award-winning author, media personality, and educational speaker.

Thomas has been a radio presenter for London’s W!zard Radio, which is broadcast internationally to over 15 countries, where he had several different shows and themes over five years. Thomas’ last show was dedicated to helping the youth of the world overcome issues, challenges and negativity which face the daily lives of his listeners on “Therapy with Thomas Mills”. Thomas addressed the Annual General Meeting of the Australian Monarchist League in Sydney during the Summer of 2015 to thousands of members and has just recently lectured for Model Westminster and the Young Adults Forum in Parliament in February of 2017. In April of 2017, Thomas undertook a tour of America where he opened the Royal Society of St George – California Branch, completed several meet and greets and further attended events and book signings for his new release: “Their Majesties’ Mixers – when they reign, they pour”, which has since won the Gourmand Award. In 2019 Thomas created the internet-based radio station, Crown & Country Radio" and continues to broadcast on his own specially themed shows.

Thomas is well versed in the International Business Auditorium as well as Royal history, with degrees and certificates from American and European universities in History, International Political Economy, International Business Administration, International Relations, Humanities and Political Science. In honor of Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012, Thomas penned his first book with permission of the Palace, to which he was granted the use of the official Diamond Jubilee Logo. “To The Queen: A Royal Drinkology” sold 5,000 copies in the months following the central Jubilee weekend. Over the past decade, Thomas has worked (and still works) tirelessly on behalf of Crown and Country, building the British Monarchist Society and Foundation, which has become the leading organization for not only British, but international Monarchists which he funded himself. He has worked hard to incorporate like-minded people to be a part of this much-revered society within the United Kingdom, in which cumulatively, under Thomas’ direction, brings British traditions to the next level.

Thomas has been busy perfecting and readying his team to organize and carry out international celebrations for Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and the House of Windsor for the Platinum Jubilee in 2022. Thomas and the BMS hosted several events for The Diamond Jubilee in 2012, The Diamond Anniversary of the Coronation, the births of Prince George and Princess Charlotte and the celebration of the longest reign: when The Queen’s reign exceeded that of Queen Victoria on September 9, 2015. This is an exciting and challenging time for Thomas and his team, and it is with great commitment, energy and foresight that he is looking forward to producing an educational celebration within his latest project, “Crown and Country Magazine” that will leave a lasting legacy for future generations of Britons. In his spare time (which is very limited), Thomas enjoys traveling, horseback riding, the arts, theatre, music, fine dining, reading and writing.

In addition to all this, we'll hear a piece from his Jubilee Anthem on today's show.
