comment What is the difference between an Emperor and a King?
I think that depends on what time period and which country. These two are not synonyms in Britain and this is a Q&A about english IIUC.

This is true, but it is difficult to see how she could use these powers without the consent of parliament. Parliament has twice now removed a King, I doubt without a popular mandate any Queen or King would try again. In a sense the People and Parliament are now Sovereign in the Uk because they in reality (if not name) have the power. The powers that she does have she uses with consent of the Prime Minister. This is kind of a double lock on these powers which was the Great Comprise.
