Should Queen Elizabeth ever commit a crime, the term ‘sovereign immunity’ will really come to the fore. Sovereign immunity means that as head of the state Queen Elizabeth ‘cannot commit a legal wrong and is immune from civil suit or criminal prosecution’.
As well as this, the Queen also benefits from diplomatic immunity, meaning she can commit a crime just about anywhere in the world and get away with it!
The sovereign immunity that the Queen benefits from even goes so far as to ensure that she cannot be subject to any civil proceedings, so she can’t be sued.
As well as this she cannot be interviewed by the police and would never have to testify in court should that be her wish.
The Queen’s word in the United Kingdom is law. She could conceivably walk into any shop in the whole of Britain and loot the place should she wish. Simply put, the Queen is above all authority and must surely be one of the most powerful people on earth for that fact alone.
Thank god she isn’t bloodthirsty like monarchs of the past!
