Use of the word "Royal" in organisational names or in business is an offence under the Flags, Emblems and Names Protection Act 1981 if it does not have the express authorisation of the King or the Governor-General. Other words that claim or imply the patronage of the King or another member of the Royal Family are similarly protected, and their use requires the express authorisation of the King.
The Ministry has prepared guidelines on the use of the word "Royal" which explain the process for obtaining authorisation.
