There are two active Privy Councils.British Privy CouncilHer Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council advises Her Majesty the Queen on exercises of executive governmental functions. By unwritten constitutional conventions, the only privy counsellors who may advise the Sovereign are those who are also a minister (and are therefore responsible to the elected House of Commons).Judicial Committee of the Privy CouncilThe British Privy Council also exercises some judicial functions, through its Judicial Committee. The Judicial Committee are the court of last appeal for some types of cases for the United Kingdom, and some other Commonwealth Realms. Appeals are actually made to the Queen-in-Council; decisions of the Privy Council are worded as "recommendations" or "advice" to the Queen.History of the InstitutionBefore the evolution of the prime minister and Parliament as the cores of decision-making, the monarch exercised much greater control over the executive government. The Sovereign depended on the advice of a closed group of advisors (the Privy Council). These privy counsellors held much more sway, as individuals, than privy counsellors of today.Queen's Privy Council for CanadaMost of the Queen's executive functions in Canada are exercised by the Governor General on the advice of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada (whose members are appointed by the Governor General on the advice of the prime minister). By convention, only privy councillors who are minister may advise the Sovereign. The Privy Council very rarely meets as an entire body.Privy Council OfficeThe Privy Council Office is the centre of the Canadian public service, responsible for giving non-partisan advice to the prime minister and the Government of the day. The Privy Council Office coordinates Government departments and agencies, and as the department of the prime minister, plays a hand in nearly all major decisions of departments.


Her Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council is a group of advisors to Her Majesty the Queen. Most of the Queen's executive functions are exercised on the advice of the Privy Council. By constitutional convention, the only privy counsellors who may advise the Sovereign are those who are also ministers (and are therefore responsible to the elected House of Commons). These exercises of the Queen's functions, on the advice of the Privy Council, is referred to as the Queen-in-Council.The Privy Council also exercises judicial functions (through its Judicial Committee) as a court of last appeal for some types of cases. Appeals are actually made to the Queen-in-Council, and are referred to the Privy Council for advice. The Privy Council accepts appeals under certain circumstances from the United Kingdom, and from several realms of the Commonwealth.


This word has two related meanings. Essentially it is an an adjective which means "private" so a "privy chamber" is a private one, and a king's "privy council" is one that deliberates in private, unlike parliament, which deliberates in public. The word is used especially in the phrase "to be privy to" which means to be in on a secret. Thus we have Proteus saying in The Two Gentlemen of Verona "Sir Valentine, my friend, this night intends to steal away your daughter; myself am one made privy to the plot." Hamlet asks the ghost "If thou art privy to thy country's fate . . . O speak!" Friar Lawrence says when explaining to the Prince how Romeo and Juliet died "and to the marriage her nurse is privy."


To be 'not privy to' something means you are not made a participant in knowledge of something private or secret; you have not been given access to certain information. So if you are 'privy to' certain information, it means you have been given access.


Privy or outdoor toilet.


A privy council exists to advise a head of State on the use of executive powers. In Canada, this is the Queen's Privy Council for Canada, which consists of a number of Canadians appointed by the Governor General, on the advice of the Prime Minister. In practice, the whole Privy Council meets rarely, such as upon an accession to the throne, or to consent to a royal marriage. Usually, in day-to-day matters of government, the only privy counsellors who provide advice to the Governor General are the Prime Minister, and other current ministers appointed on his advice (i.e., "the Cabinet"). The Cabinet can be considered the "active" committee of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada.


The Queen's Privy Council for Canada is a body of advisors to Her Majesty the Queen of Canada. The Privy Council was created by s. 11 of the Constitution Act, 1867, and consists of members appointed by the Governor General of Canada on the advice of the prime minister. Members of the Privy Council are styled The Honourable, and may use the post-nominals "P.C."By constitutional convention, only privy councillors who are also a minister (and are therefore responsible to the elected House of Commons) may advise the Governor General on the exercise of executive functions. These ministers are usually members of the Cabinet (which is technically a committee of the larger Privy Council).


An old fashioned name for toilet.
