I also wonder what Alberta's Court of Queen's Bench is going to do.  Do they immediately order lawyers to start using "King's Bench"?  Do they keep QB for a time for a more orderly transition?  Do they keep the name QB?

Or does someone decide this is the opportunity to rename it entirely?  Only the prairie provinces and New Brunswick use QB as the name of our superior court.

I wonder if this could lead to any legal shennanigans.

QCs immediately become KCs (and weird to think I'll probably never see another QC in my lifetime). I'd assume the Queen's Bench Division of the High Court will also just become the King's Bench. It seems like it'd make sense to move to a different name for provincial superior courts though.

A Tweet by The Toronto Star, today, is so true:

The Queen, who died Thursday at age 96, was the last royal to wholly personify the traits of duty, discretion and personal dignity.

That's a really backhanded compliment at her family.  Poor taste.

I strongly doubt it.  The style of cause could be easily amended.

But then again - do we need to amend the style of cause on every single criminal file before the courts? :o

Presumably that's why its R v anyone and the Crown that's prosecuting? :hmm:

I thought is was always "the crown vs", not "the queen vs"?

The originating document is either an information or an indictment.  Both list "Her Majesty the Queen" at the top.

It's usually shortened to R v Whomever, but the original court documents are more formal.

The whole thing could have been avoided if you'd switched to female only succession.

Interesting. Sounds like a pain to fix, if it does indeed need fixing. Though I guess easier is a digital age.

You have at least three generations of kings coming so you shouldn't have to change it again for awhile.

Apparently it's states in the statute that even though the statute is named the Court of Queen's Bench Act, that during the reign of a King it will be called the Court of King's Bench.
