Queen elizabeth job description revised by Buckingham Palace for the FIRST time in decade
The alteration in the Queen’s role has been made for the first time in the decade,
according to the news reports. The Queen’s “official duties” have been edited in the
palace’s annual report for the first time in at least a decade, to take out specific events
such as the State Opening of Parliament that were previously considered necessary by “constitutional convention”.
The new version, published following the Platinum Jubilee,
places greater emphasis on the support of the wider Royal Family.
According to the Sovereign Grant report, signed off by Sir Michael Stevens, Keeper of
the Privy Purse, the Queen’s role still comprises two key elements: Head of State and Head of Nation.
As Head of State, the “formal constitutional concept”, the Queen “must fulfil” specific duties.
