    Nope.

    Not while she's Queen at least.

    So the saying, "No one is above the law" is crap.

    She had Diana killed after all. And look at her, throwing parties to celebrate it 10 years later. It's criminal.

    Are all of you saying "no" just guessing or something?

    Of course she can be arrested!

    Obviously it's not like she's going to be pulled over for speeding and put up before the beak in "The Crown v. The Crown" - but given the UK's lack of a constitution, anything is possible, and precedent indicates that indeed the reigning monarch can be put on trial. Charles I? Hello??

    Is this thread title literal. As in, could you actually physically arrest her, or would she be able to fend you off using an enchanted sceptre/dropkick attack.

    Okay another one, Does the Queen own all the money in the UK? and can you get arrested if you damage a coin with the Queens face on it?

    I know these are just enoying things that I have always wanted to know.

    Random I know. I believe that she is technically in charge of the military so could actually issue orders and declare war etc..

    It was brilliant, she asked me that this afternoon on a walk in the woods. Took me a few seconds to reflect on how to answer. Sadly I opted for the boring route:

    "Same as you, aqueous humour."

    Which got us into a discussion on lenses, photoreceptors, nerves, brains. Jeez it's a wakeup call having kids, they won't accept your end point, they want to go all the way.

    "OK so what's in a brain?"

    "Um, little grey cells, chemicals, ganglions, you know, stuff."

    "And how does that make you think?"

    "I dunno dammit ask your mum!"

    No, they'd get in trouble for being ten miles away from their place of work.

    Ha true. But isn't their official (Never going to happen I know) role to defend the Queen?
