If you aren't, you aren't on the electoral roll.

Thus, His Darwinian Majesty must not be a citizen either. After all, he's not on your list.

However, does Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, of the Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland and of her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith have her own passport?

Further to that, does she actually vote?

Was on a documentary on BBC a while back.

Actually, No, and maybe.

As the passports are issued in Her name, there is no reason for her to have a passport.

And the Queen doesn't vote, to maintain neutrality.

http://www.royal.gov.uk/output/page4871.asp wrote:
When travelling overseas, The Queen does not require a British passport. The cover of a British passport features the Royal Arms, and the first page contains another representation of the Arms, together with the following wording:

'Her Britannic Majesty's Secretary of State requests and requires in the name of Her Majesty all those whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hindrance and to afford the bearer such assistance and protection as may be necessary.'

As a British passport is issued in the name of Her Majesty, it is unnecessary for The Queen to possess one. All other members of the Royal Family, including The Duke of Edinburgh and The Prince of Wales, have passports.

In realms (Commonwealth countries where The Queen is Sovereign), a similar formula is used, except that the request to all whom it may concern is made in the name of the realm's Governor-General, as The Queen's representative in that realm. In Canada, the request is made in the name of Her Majesty by the Minister of Foreign Affairs.


And in answer to the second:

http://www.royal.gov.uk/output/page5117.asp wrote:The Queen and her family never vote or stand for election to any position, political or otherwise.

This is because The Queen's role is to provide continuity and the focus for national unity, and the Royal Family's public role is based on identifying with every section of society, including minorities and special interest groups.

Although the law relating to elections does not specifically prohibit the Sovereign from voting in a general election or local election, it is considered unconstitutional for the Sovereign and his or her heir to do so.

As Head of State, The Queen must remain politically neutral, since her Government will be formed from whichever party can command a majority in the House of Commons.

The Queen herself is part of the legislature and technically she cannot therefore vote for members of another part of the legislature.

With the removal of hereditary peers from the House of Lords in 1999, the Royal Dukes (The Dukes of Edinburgh, York, Gloucester and Kent) ceased to be members of the House of Lords and therefore became eligible to vote in elections, and to stand for election.

But members of the Royal Family do not exercise these rights. To vote or hold elected positions would not be in accordance with the need for neutrality.

Under the Maastricht Treaty, The Queen and other members of the Royal Family would be entitled to vote for the European Parliament, or to stand for election to that Parliament.

However, The Queen would only exercise these rights on the advice of her Ministers. Their advice would invariably be that she should neither vote nor stand for an elected position so as not to compromise her neutrality.

Other members of the Royal Family do not act on ministerial advice, but they also are required to preserve their political neutrality so as not to embarrass The Queen. Therefore, they too would not vote nor stand for election for the European Parliament.

Meh, who cares?

Anyway, I've posted the evidence above, if you're interested.

Can I put you down for a passport?

Yet she is a citizen, as is His Darwinian Majesty. You also left out the Secretary of State, who does need a passport. Your credibility is in question.

May it please His Darwinian Majesty that I wish to join His Realm, and also am interested in joining the Council of Ministers, preferably the Minister of Defense or Minister of State.

wwarnick> The Queen doesn't need a passport, since she is the granting authority FOR the passport; why would she grant herself a privilege she already has by definition?
