Britain is a constitutional monarchy which is a parliamentary democracy where the monarch "reigns but does not govern". The power of the monarch is limited to giving recommendations to the elected parliament that holds the legislative power and it is the Prime Minister who holds the real executive power (since the royal prerogative was transferred to the Parliament in 1688.)
Although the constitution, as a rule, does not lay down the powers of the monarch, it continues to play an active role in the functioning of institutions through agreements.
Even though the British monarch no longer rules and only appears to have his powers it can still influence the functioning of the political institutions.
The monarch’s influence on the Judiciary:
According to Bagehot, the British monarch still has a 'judicial influence’
This influence is legitimized by political experience and involvement in ongoing cases and allows the Crown "to be consulted, to encourage and develop custody ". These three constitutional functions vested in it implicitly intend it to moderate or even mediate some government action.
