Proroguing is the process whereby the Queen ends a session of Parliament and the time before it is reopened.
If the Queen was to prorogue the parliament, it would push through a no deal Brexit.
Whether this is right for Boris Johnson's political career is up for debate, but if the Queen was to oblige with Mr Johnosons request it would be the most political move Elizabeth would've made in her 67-year-reign, one that has been marked by decidedly unpolitical motivations.
After all, the Queen has understood how important it is for the royal family to not involve themselves too heavily in the political governing of the country, or risk jeopardising the legitimacy of the monarchy and their very role within the commonwealth.
Director of Birmingham City University’s Centre for Brexit Studies, Alex De Ruyter, told the Express.co.uk: “This has the potential to hugely politicise the role of the Queen.
“It’s almost impossible to see the Queen attempting to override our elected Parliament, but ignoring the request of a sitting Prime Minister is problematic for her as well.”
