|King Simon Abney-Hastings ?|
In 2004 a Channel 4 documentary suggested that King Edward IV was conceived illegitamately and the crown should have passed to the Plantagenet line which eventually ends at the Abney-Hastings family in Australia.
What has this to do with Havering you might ask ? Well the Royal Liberty of Havering charter of 1465 was issued by King Edward IV. As King Edward IV is not regarded as a true king due to his illegitamacy then the 1465 Charter is not valid. The local royalist community are always keen to quote the "legal freedoms" of a royal liberty charter as a political and cultural slight against parliament but this conduct can be potentially declared formerly illegal and hence a potential criminal offense.
