Official narrative

Wikipedia confidently assures readers that in the UK at least "abolition of the royal prerogative is not on the immediate horizon".[1]

The royal prerogative has been called "a notoriously difficult concept to define adequately".

Passports

UK passports are issued under Royal prerogative rather than legislation, which meant that it was easy to require UK citizens to give their fingerprints before getting a passport.[2] Royal prerogative has been used as recently as 2005 to remove passports from British citizens on grounds of "public interest".[3]
