Caldish Royal Family

The Caldish Royal Family (Ghaillish: Teaghlach Ríoga na Ghlítteacht) is the family group of close relatives of the monarch of Caldia. The Royal Family is formally divided into two bodies, the Royal Household (Shealbhúteach Ríoga), which consists of the monarch, the consort, the heir aparent (typically the Prince or Princess of Ghailles), the children of the monarch, and the grandchildren of the monarch through the heir presumptive. The Royal Family typically consists of all other children, grandchildren, as well as siblings and cousins of the monarch, in addition to their spouses and widows or widowers. However, due to the current monarch's young age, the Royal Family currently includes the parents, uncles, and aunts of King Kenneth IV. There are also extended members of the family, such as second cousins, grandaunts, and granduncles, that are often considered members of the Royal Family. However, it is not uncommon for members of the so called extended Royal Family to be without title or royal style.

Some members of the Royal Family have official residences named as the places from which announcements are made in the Court Directorate (Stiúrthóireacht Cúirte) about official engagements they have carried out. The state duties and staff of some members of the Royal Family are funded from a parliamentary annuity, the amount of which is fully refunded by the monarch to the treasury.

Members of the Royal Family traditionally belong to the House of MacIconnich. Since 2002 with the accession of King Elton II, monarchs have come from the House of MacIconnich-Sartoux. The House formed through the marriage of Queen Ellen II and Philippe of Sartoux. Currently, virtually all members of the Royal Family belong to the House of MacIconnich-Sartoux. However, many extended members belong to the House of MacIconnich or other cadet branches, such as the House of Biron-MacIconnich.
