No advance permission is required to place the photographs in the Image gallery on objects for everyday use intended for circulation. However, the RVD reserves the right to take action at a later date if a photograph is published in a fashion that, in its judgment, is incompatible with the dignity of the Royal House or can be considered as promotional use, use for commercial purposes, or use to disseminate particular ideas. Please note that the majority of photographs used on this website are not owned by the Royal House and therefore cannot be downloaded for commercial and/or official use.
The RVD will not respond to questions from third parties about the possibility that legal or other action will be taken in given circumstances.
