The Crown is the state in all its aspects within the jurisprudence of the Commonwealth realms and their subdivisions (such as Crown dependencies, overseas territories, provinces, or states).

Legally ill-defined, the Crown has different meanings depending on context. It is used to designate the monarch in either a personal capacity, as Head of the Commonwealth, or as the king or queen of his or her realms. The Crown can also refer to the rule of law; however, in common parlance it refers to the functions of government and the civil service.[1]
