  BRITISH CROWN : Encyclopedia Entry   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Thus, as the modern British monarchy is a constitutional one, the Sovereign's role is in practice limited to non-partisan functions (such as being the fount of honour).
The sovereign also holds the title of Supreme Governor of the established Church of England, although in practice the spiritual leadership of the Church is the responsibility of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
It is the prerogative of the monarch to summon, prorogue, and dissolve Parliament.

 Lady Sovereign - Biography - AOL Music
The self-proclaimed "biggest midget in the game," MC Lady Sovereign has an unmistakably British delivery and style, but a string of singles showcasing her sly wit and brash charisma over bottom-heavy beats brought on a worldwide buzz.
Born Louise Harman, Sovereign was raised in northwest London's notorious Chalkhill Estate, a public housing project known for being especially rough and ragged.
Although she admits her upbringing could get dangerous or depressing in these surroundings, Sovereign focused on the unique unity in the Chalkhill community, and the street cred she was earning there would soon be vital to the grime community taking her seriously.

 Provinces Already Sovereign   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
The first is that the states which form the union must be sovereign, free and independent before they federate; the second, that the federal constitution which forms the basis of the union must be accepted by the citizens of the federating states.
As further evidence that the British North America Act was not a constitution, and that Canada did not become a federal union, I refer to the definition of the term "dominion" which is to be found in section 18, paragraph 3 of the Interpretation Act of 1889.
The British North America Act, as enacted by the Imperial Parliament, was not a constitution but merely an act of the Imperial Parliament which united four colonies in Canada into one colony, with the supreme authority still remaining in the hands of the British government.

 :: MVRemix: Show Reviews: Lady Sovereign in Seattle ::   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Lady Sovereign was backed by a drummer, bassist and DJ that provided what was needed: heavy grime beats, chunky bass lines, and that 2-step momentum necessary to capture the UK garage-rap style that has been increasingly prevalent.
Her style is certainly unique to the US, the entire UK rap circuit has its own set of circumstances and flavor that seems to be slowly flooding Americans’ sound waves, but with apprehension at the same time.
Lady Sovereign had the club hopping when she covered the Sex Pistols’ “Pretty Vacant” in which the crowd erupted in a roar of punk enthusiasm.

 Kingdom of Great Britain - Free net encyclopedia
The two former kingdoms had shared the same monarch since King James VI of Scotland became King James I of England in 1603.
From 1707 a joint British throne replaced the English and Scottish thrones and a joint Parliament of Great Britain replaced the Parliament of Scotland and the Parliament of England.
Scotland and England were given seats in both the House of Lords and the House of Commons of the new parliament.

 ipedia.com: British Royal Family Article   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
There are three living former spouses of members of the British Royal Family: Sarah, Duchess of York (the former wife of the Duke of York), Captain Mark Philips (the former husband of the Princess Royal), and the Earl of Snowdon (the former husband of the late Princess Margaret).
Use of the style His Royal Highness or Her Royal Highness (HRH) and the titular dignity of Prince or Princess is governed by Letters Patent issued by King George V on 30 November1917 (published in the London Gazette on 11 December 1917).
As grandchildren of the Sovereign through the female line, the children of the then Princess Elizabeth and The Duke of Edinburgh would not have been entitled to use HRH or Prince or Princess until their mother became Queen, had those titles and styles not been granted in Letters Patent of 22 October 1948.

 The British Peerage:
The Sovereign is legally and practically the sole fount of titles and awards of honour and dignity,(90) which are awarded by virtue of an exercise of the prerogative.
In this respect the British peerage (for the Scottish and Irish practice mirrored the English) is distinct from the continental European, where the stress lay upon nobility of blood.
Peerages conferred by the British Sovereign are not, in the law of New Zealand, titles conferred by a foreign Sovereign.

 Style of the British Sovereign - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In full, the Sovereign is referred to as "His [Her] Most Gracious Majesty." In Acts of Parliament, the phrase "The King's [Queen's] Most Excellent Majesty" is used in the enacting clause.
In treaties and on British passports, the Sovereign is referred to as "His [Her] Britannic Majesty" as to differentiate from foreign sovereigns.
The monarchs adopted a joint style, "King and Queen of England, France, Naples, Jerusalem and Ireland, Defenders of the Faith, Princes of Spain and Sicily, Archdukes of Austria, Dukes of Milan, Burgundy and Brabant, Counts of Habsburg, Flanders and Tyrol," acknowledging both Mary's and Philip's titles.

 Royal Styles
Sovereigns themselves cannot give themselves titles at will; the assent of their subjects does not suffice; that of the other Powers is necessary; and each Crown, free to acknowledge or reject a new title, can also adopt it with the changes and conditions it finds suitable." (see the original text).
The styles used by kings to describe themselves in their own acts, or to describe other kings to whom they wrote or with whom they signed treaties, were handled by their chanceries.
The style belonged by right to the children of the sovereign (Partida II, Título VII, Ley I) although by the 18th century it was also the birthright of the children of the hereditary prince; no one else was entitled to the style (Informe del Consejo Real, 27 Oct 1823).

 The New Yorker : critics : music
When I visited Sovereign in October, she and her producer, a man named Gabriel who goes professionally by Medasyn, were bunkered in a converted textile factory in East London, an appropriately filthy building where Medasyn rents studio space.
Sovereign was curled up in an armchair, looking smaller and younger than eighteen.
Sovereign began the song by quoting “Tipsy,” an American hip-hop hit, and coursed through a series of seemingly unrelated ideas: “I can’t see straight like I got one eye.

 MTVNews.com: Music Geek: The U.K.'s Grime Wave
That was not the sound Lady Sovereign intended to bellow into her microphone, but it's what the audience in New York's Knitting Factory heard when the 19-year-old British MC took the stage for a show earlier this month.
As soon as Lady Sovereign began her set, with the rumbling bass and TV-show-theme stabs of a track called "Cha Ching," the crowd of DJs, writers, bloggers and industry types was head-bobbing, dancing and rapping along with her seemingly unintelligible rhymes.
The revelers were clearly taken by the young woman's charismatic bloom, even if some of it seemed wilted under the weight of her illness ("I might vomit on you if I'm not careful," she warned the front row of fans in a moment of sincere jest).

 Royal Families
As she was no longer a princess the style of HRH accorded to British princesses was discontinued - or "lost" as the newspapers preferred to describe it - and, of course, she could no longer use the badge of the Prince of Wales.
Its use signals the rallying point for the Sovereign's supporters, and thus its design includes the national ensign (today the Union, but in earlier times in the British Isles the cross of St George or of St Andrew) plus a few of those Sovereign's badges that the supporters would be expected to recognise easily.
That coronet with the single arch is the coronet of the Sovereign's eldest son whether or not he is The Prince of Wales.

It contained the conditions that Hussein was later to make for his support of the British: the main condition was a commitment by the British to grant the Turkish-occupied areas independence at the end of the war.
Hussein, otherwise satisfied with the British assurances, was prepared to wait till the end of the war for this region.
The British wanted to defeat the Turks, but their object was to grab their share of the crumbling empire's Middle Eastern region.

 Style Weekly : Richmond's alternative for news, arts, culture and opinion
The result is a fascinating and telling confrontation of old-fashioned British phlegm and newfangled demands that all public figures be emotionally accessible to the people.
It’s the story, in other words, of how politicians and sovereigns can hold on to their positions only if they consent to become just a special kind of celebrity.
Subject to increasingly skittish entreaties from the prime minister that she give her grief a public airing, the queen is brought to a painful awareness of the strange new world that has taken shape while she raised her beloved corgis in the Scottish Highlands.

Villeneuve had been severely criticised by his Emperor for not engaging the British earlier and it was certain that he would desire to blow the Royal Navy out of the sea.

"Sovereign can cultivate a broader appeal because there aren't any questions about her authenticity?The phenomenon of Lady Sovereign is not just about the rareness of an unmanufactured pop star?her story, up until now, is the story of a teenager in 2005.
Sovereign may respond to such comparisons with a hearty "Eff Off!," but the hype did earn her a now legendary, if somewhat maligned, audition, and deal, with Def Jam President and CEO, Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter.
Sovereign's rapid-fire flow and in-your-face attitude may have caught the ear of some major players, but it certainly didn't happen overnight.

 Public Information Notice: IMF Board Discusses Collective Action Clauses in Sovereign Bond Contracts
The first paper, "Collective Action Clauses in Sovereign Bond Contracts—Encouraging Greater Use," examined the reasons that collective action clauses have not been used in key jurisdictions, and assessed ways to overcome this resistance to change.
A number of Directors noted the complementarity between efforts on collective action clauses and the Fund's ongoing work on a statutory framework for debt restructuring, and they looked forward to the forthcoming discussion on Fund access policy, which is an important element of the Fund's framework for crisis prevention and resolution.
Regarding the inclusion of innovative provisions in international sovereign bonds, many Directors noted that it is too early to draw conclusions, as a number of design features of these provisions are still unclear and the preliminary market reaction has been mixed.

 Paul Foot: In the colonial style (1996)
Sovereign Britain laid down the ground rules while the day to day administration was carried out by the local American assemblies.
Though the British had by this time installed troops, they were nothing like strong enough to cope with these mighty demonstrations, and the people were repeatedly triumphant.
Their triumphs stoked up the fury of the new British chancellor soon to be prime minister, Edward North, an even denser bigot than Townshend.

This is derived from Roman styles, and was modified and worn by many European cultures of the time.
Scotland was a separate sovereign country at this time and never felt the Tudor sword against its' highland dress, though most Scottish kings forbade the wearing of the kilt in their presence.
As for wearing plaid into battle, the kilt was taken out of operational use after the War, as the hem used to freeze in the trenches and cut into the backs of the knees of those wearing them.

 British Rule in India   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
That the Princely States had no real freedom was made plain at independence in 1947 when they were ordered to chose absorption into either India or Pakistan (the choice of the Hindu Ruler of mainly-Muslim Kashmir to opt for India is the cause of the tensions there that persist to this day).
Finally, India's special status was recognised within the British government too - from 1858 to 1947 India had its own its own department, the India Office, and Secretary of State, quite separate from the Colonial Office.
The image here has been made from a description of the ensign, so the size and style of the swords, and the size of the Star of India may not be accurate.

 "Public Warning" by Lady Sovereign - zBoneman Music Reviews
What do you call a white female British rapper who stands barely 5 feet, sings with everything from a grumble to a whine and dresses like Chuck D circa 1991.
Evidently she describes herself as the "Biggest Midget In The Game" and with some classic-styled beats and a little help from New York hip hop mogul Jay-Z she finds a niche in a music landscape dominated by stylized and sexed up songstresses.
Sovereign's style is almost an anti-style, blending British urban wisdom with some playful hard-knock-life styled pop and a bit of self deprecating humor.
