Forget that you ever heard the term "corporation sole". Its a very special type of beast that takes a special act of parliament to create and we haven't done so for over a decade.
True enough, but don't forget all about it. It's a constitutional device - the office of the sovereign is a corporation sole so the things that the Queen 'owns' as monarch (rather than as Elizabeth Windsor, who 'owns' things in her own right) pass to her "lawful heirs and successors" without interference from her pesky bureaucrats or judges. It makes for endless hours of enjoyable, albeit pointless chatter in common rooms.
