The Rights of a Sovereign

“The Sovereign has, under a constitutional monarchy such as ours, three rights -- the right to be consulted, the right to encourage, the right to warn. And a king of great sense and sagacity would want no others !"


One of the greatest pains to human nature is the pain of a new idea. The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.


William Bagehot 1826 to 1877

I truly agree. It also applies to a queen.:) Just like when Queen Victoria learned that she will become queen one day, she said "I'll be good". And she was true to her word.

Didn't Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette Marit get criticised for going to a minister's birthday party fairly recently. Also, Ari Behn has said publicly that he supports the Labour party or something.

Monarch's Duty To The Public

Suppose that a young reigning King or Queen decides that they have no interest in performing their duty to the public. Suppose they also have no interest in abdicating. They tell everyone they want to live a party life and do what they want when they want.

Is there anything that can be done? Can a monarch be forced to step down?

That'll be the death of the monarchy. Legally speaking, the Parliament can pass an Act of Parliament to "abdicate' him, and maybe even just throw out the whole thing while they're at it.

Luckily, none of the BRF appears to be like that, so I don't think we'll have to worry about this for a while. :)

The government will create a situation to force the monarch to abdicate - as they did ihn 1936 when they had a monarch who wasn't doing the duties properly.
