By royal appointment

£6.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

What is the Privy Council? What does it do? How did it come into being? We have no written constitution and, therefore, no easy answers to these questions. There are people that would argue that it has no power at all. Others might disagree. Particularly if you had been sentenced to death in a former British overseas territory that still used the Privy Council as its Court of appeal, for example, or if you were a student having a row with your college examiners where the University Chancellor, or the Official Vistor, was a member of the royal family. 'By Royal Appointment' takes us on an anecdote-filled odyssey through the history of one of England's oldest and most secretive institutions, its history spanning our history from King Cnut, through the middle ages up to its modern embodiment and functions.
