The Royal Manticoran Navy is organized along very simple lines. There are seven Senior Officers of the organization: The First Lord of the Admiralty, the Commandant of the Royal Manticoran Marine Corps, the First Space Lord, the High Admiral of the Grayson Space Navy, the Marshal of the Royal Manticoran Army, the Home Secretary and the Commissioner of the Sphinxian Forestry Commission.
These seven members make up the Royal Council, which is the Board of Directors for The Royal Manticoran Navy: The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association, Inc. Each of these positions has a specific function which we will cover in this section.
Non-Voting / Advisory Royal Council Members
The following are three specific roles, and one general role, which fulfill an advisory role to the Royal Council. They are permitted to attend all meetings that do not involve sensitive issues as defined by the Judge Advocate General. Their role is to advise the Royal Council on issues pertinent to their constituents. These are not the only members who will fall into this category, but they will be the standing three non-voting/advisory members.
The Lord Speaker of the House of Lords will be invited to meetings to represent the interests of the Peers of TRMN. They will be permitted to bring up issues the Lords wish the Royal Council to address, discuss, or be knowledgeable about.
Speaker of the House
The Speaker of the House of Commons will be invited to meetings to represent the interests of the general members elected to the House of Commons of TRMN. They will be permitted to bring up issues the Commons wish the Royal Council to address, discuss, or be knowledgeable about.
Judge Advocate General
The Judge Advocate General is the same as is listed under the Staff of the First lord of the Admiralty. Their role is to advise the Royal Council on Legal matters. In the event a matter involves sensitive information, they can ask that other non-voting members not be included in the discussion.
Royal Council Staff Members
The Staff of the individual Royal Council members may attend at the discretion of their Royal Council member. In some cases, such as the Chief of Staff for the First Lord of the Admiralty, they have specific functions to preform at the Royal Council meetings and will be expected to attend. They are not considered non-voting or advisory members, and as such, can remain even if other non-voting/advisory members are asked by the Judge Advocate General to not be included in the discussion.
