The provide the structure of the superior and prestige

The United Kingdom (UK)  is a country like no other, due to the nature of the British Constitution, which has been described by Queen Elizabeth II, to have ”always been puzzling and will always continue to be puzzling.” Generally, a Constitution is defined as a set of text that provide the structure of the superior and prestige law of a country. Not only does a Constitution organise and describe the independent institutions of a state but, it also consists of the principles that determine the relationships within the institutions, in relation to the citizen’s of the nation. Most constitutions around the world are the product of a significant event in history. By contrast, the British Constitution is one that cannot be traced to a specific date in history, a ‘constitutional moment’, if you will. Over centuries, the unbroken history of the United Kingdom has  allowed the gradual evolution of the Constitution from the obsolete system of British monarchy to a constitutional government fueled by the principle of parliamentary sovereignty. The principle of parliamentary sovereignty is described by A.V Dicey as one of the ‘twin pillars’ of the British Constitution, along with the rule of law. Often, the uncodified nature of the British Constitution is said to unique but the more accurate term to describe it would be unusual as it is one nation amongst three (Israel and New Zealand) that have uncodified constitutions. Sir Ivor Jennings once said that ”if a Constitution means a written document, then the UK has none.” To say that the United Kingdom does not consist of a constitution, based on the fact that it has never been seen as necessary for Britain to combine all the building blocks of the constitution into a singular document would be to dismiss the very substance and history of Britain. What Britain has in place of a Constitution is a wide collection of relevant, varying treaties, conventions and judicial decisions that trace back centuries.
