The Council

The Order of St John is a royal order of chivalry of the British Crown. Previously styled as the Order of St John “in the British Realm”, the Order and its foundations were spread throughout the British Empire.

The patron of St John in Malta was therefore the Governor, as the Crown’s direct representative to the Island, and later the Governor-General. Malta adopted a republican constitution in 1974, and thereafter, the Governor-General’s successor accepted to retain the patronage of St John Ambulance in Malta.
