Most of the stuff I know from the Tractarians and Cambridge movement just

The question presented itself when I was reading a biography of a British
politician at the beginning of the 20th century. After his accession in
1901, Edward VII held a traditional series of audiences for the Privileged
Bodies (University heads, Anglican bishops, senior service officers, etc).
Prominent Catholic politicians and bishops proposed that they too should be
allowed to present the loyalties of British Catholics.
The government of the day was opposed, fearing "No Popery" agitation, but
the king persisted and the audience took place. The king was officially
advised by the cabinet to only refer to "Roman Catholics" not "Catholics."
