Formally, ministers, as the Privy Council, "advise" the Crown; in practice, the Crown always accepts their advice.

In political science and constitutional law, the executive is the branch of government responsible for the day-to-day management of the state. In many countries, it is referred to simply as the "government", but this usage can be confusing in an international context. The term "executive" comes from wording of the United States Constitution, which charges the President to "take care that the laws be faithfully executed".Under the doctrine of the separation of powers, the executive is not supposed to make laws (role of the legislature), nor to interpret them (role of the judiciary): in practice, this separation is rarely (if ever) absolute.
