Elizabeth II, Constitutional Monarch

Over a millennium, the monarchy in England has gone from being an absolute to a constitutional monarchy, exhibiting now strength (representing the unity of the nation, operating above politics) through weakness (having no capacity to exercise independent judgment in decision making). ElizabethII has proved assiduous in fulfilling not only her ceremonial duties, but also her constitutional duties in keeping abreast of affairs of state, in providing a confidential audience for Prime Ministers, and in fulfilling prerogative powers on the advice of her ministers. There are only three remaining personal prerogative powers not exercised on advice. Attempts have been made to protect the Queen from being drawn into controversy in their exercise, but the fact that she could potentially be drawn into making political decisions has led to calls for these powers to be transferred elsewhere.
