Monarchy Of The United Kingdom
The MONARCHY OF THE UNITED KINGDOM, commonly referred to as the BRITISH MONARCHY, is the constitutional monarchy of the United Kingdom , its dependencies and its overseas territories . The current monarch and head of state, Queen Elizabeth II , ascended the throne on the death of her father, King George VI , on 6 February 1952. The monarch and his or her immediate family undertake various official, ceremonial, diplomatic and representational duties. As the monarchy is constitutional, the monarch is limited to non-partisan functions such as bestowing honours and appointing the Prime Minister . The monarch is, by tradition, commander-in-chief of the British Armed Forces . Though the ultimate formal executive authority over the government of the United Kingdom is still by and through the monarch's royal prerogative , these powers may only be used according to laws enacted in Parliament and, in practice, within the constraints of convention and precedent . The British monarchy traces its origins from the petty kingdoms of early medieval Scotland and Anglo-Saxon England , which consolidated into the kingdoms of England and Scotland by the 10th century AD

Monarchy Of New Zealand
The MONARCHY OF NEW ZEALAND is the constitutional system of government in which a hereditary monarch is the sovereign and head of state of New Zealand . The current monarch, Queen Elizabeth II , ascended the throne on the death of her father, King George VI , on 6 February 1952. All executive authority is vested in the monarch and her assent is required for parliament to enact laws and for letters patent and Orders in Council to have legal effect. However, the authority for these acts stems from the New Zealand populace and, within the conventional stipulations of constitutional monarchy , the sovereign's direct participation in any of these areas of governance is limited. Most of the related powers are exercised by the elected parliamentarians , the ministers of the Crown generally drawn from amongst them, and the judges and justices of the peace . Other powers vested in the monarch, such as the appointment of a prime minister , are significant, but are treated only as reserve powers and as an important security part of the role of the monarchy. The New Zealand monarchy has its roots in the British Crown , from which it has evolved to become a distinctly New Zealand institution, represented by unique symbols. New Zealand's monarch is today shared equally with 15 other countries within the Commonwealth of Nations , all being independent and the monarchy of each legally distinct
