Also, what is the implication on the Queen's role in this, now?

The PM made an illegal request, and she implemented it. And without apparent objection. Is that a case of just following orders? Is it an example of a completely powerless monarch? Is it a case of her agreeing with his Brexit goal and supporting his political activities? Is it a situation where the judicial system should pass sentence on her action as a lawbreaker?

In fact, it is not even routine lawbreaking: she apparently violated the solemn and long-standing Constitution of the United Kingdom. That seems pretty extreme.

What does the Constitution say about monarchs who attempt to undermine the pure, sacred, and privileged activities of parliament? Seems like the UK is now re-litigating the 17th century...
