Privy Council of Austenasia

The Imperial Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council, usually known simply as the Privy Council, is a body of advisers to the Monarch in the Empire of Austenasia. Its membership is primarily made up of Austenasian politicians, members of the Imperial Family, and a select few friendly foreign dignitaries.

A precursor to the Privy Council could be seen in the "imperial court" which formed around Emperor Esmond III at his high school during the Austenasian Civil War, generally comprised of self-appointed advisers, courtiers and bodyguards who would make suggestions on foreign and domestic policy. This ceased to function after May 2011, when the oldest year group of the school (in which Esmond III and most of his court were in) left for study leave before their final exams.

The Privy Council itself was founded on 12 March 2014 by the Privy Council and Palasian Defence Act 2014. It "has the function of providing non-binding advice to the Monarch on the exercise of the powers and duties of the Throne and on any matter which may be brought by the Monarch to its attention", and "is comprised of Privy Counsellors appointed to it by the Monarch."

Privy Counsellors have the right of unhindered access to the ear of the Monarch, to impart advice and concerns. They may also hold the style of The Rt Hon. (The Right Honourable) if they do not already have a higher-ranking style.

The membership of the Privy Council is at the complete discretion of the Monarch, with the only exceptions being that the Prime Minister automatically becomes a member upon election, as does the Heir to the Throne upon reaching 16 years of age.
