The Church of England

Church of England
The monarch is head of the Church of England (Anglican Church) and so must be a member of that church.

There are three people who would have been in the top 30 Royals in line to the throne but who are now banned from the list.

They have either become a Roman Catholic or married a Roman Catholic.
