This chapter desribes the impact of constitutional reform on the status of the Crown in Great Britain. It explains the distinction between three types of prerogative powers, which are the Queen's constitutional prerogatives, the legal prerogatives, and those prerogatives that provide ministers with executive authority. It suggests that one of the major results of reform was freeing the courts from inhibitions that still surround judicial policing of prerogative authority.

Keywords: constitutional reform; prerogative powers; the Queen; judicial review; ministers; executive authority
