3:Kingdom Ombudsman Program: Institute a Kingdom level position analogous to the COM Ombudsman. This will give a local point of contact to make it easier to report issues.

Add the following under VI.C (And adjust lettering of other subsections appropriately):

3. This position may not be held by an EH High Officer or a member of the EH BOD
4. The Kingdom Ombudsman is appointed and dismissed by joint agreement of the Monarch, and either the PM or GMR
5. The appointment’s term is open-ended to allow for consistency; however the appointee resigning or being dismissed can end the term"

4: Remove all instances of Tanglewood Forest from the corpora.
