Main UK laws that the Queen may not obey

Main UK laws that the Queen may not obey

It is logical that for the Queen of England, many laws do not apply. We will tell about some of them today.

Have a passport

The ruler of Great Britain does not have the usual international passport - and this does not stop her from traveling to different countries. All passports are issued in the country in the name of the Queen, so she cannot register herself.

Pay taxes

In England, there are taxes that are paid on the life of the Queen. It is logical that the ruler does not pay it to herself. The Queen pays a tax that goes to increase the country's income.

Provide information upon request

In England, there is a law related to freedom of information: journalists need it to ask anyone questions and get cherished answers. Not within the scope of this law are the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen, their children and grandchildren.

Get a driving license

It's the same story as with the passport: the driver's license is issued on behalf of the queen, the ruler does not need them, she does not have to pass tests and pass an exam. In wartime, the Queen drove an ambulance and drives perfectly in general.

SDA (partially)

It is allowed not to reduce the speed and not to observe the speed limit if the queen is driving or carrying a passenger. In the list of laws for the Queen, nothing is written about speed, there are no penalties for exceeding.

Do not touch the swans

The Queen does not eat swans - meaning that the law does not prohibit if there is a desire. This does not mean that the queen eats swans regularly, although the royal family has unusual food preferences. But if there is a desire, she can do it, and no one in the UK has the right to ban her.

Don't own dolphins

The Queen owns dolphins, fish and whales that live in the waters of the United Kingdom. She even owns swans on the Thames!
