Why was a minion of a foreign Prince going to speak inside the rotunda of the state capitol in Providence?
The Foreign Agents Registration Act is a United States law (22 U.S.C. § 611 et seq.) passed in 1938 requiring that agents representing the interests of foreign powers be properly identified to the American public.
The act requires people and organizations that are under foreign control ("agents of a foreign principal") to register with the Department of Justice when acting on behalf of foreign interests. This law defines the agent of a foreign principal as someone who:
Engages in political activities for or in the interests of a foreign principal;
Acts in a public relations capacity for a foreign principal;
Solicits or dispenses any thing of value within the United States for a foreign principal;
Represents the interests of a foreign principal before any agency or official of the U.S. government.[1
