In building constitutional monarchy and responsible government, the ministerial council offered is generally binding, a situation described as « The [king] governs, but the government governs as long as it has the support of the House of Representatives. »  The Royal Prerogative rests with the Crown and not with any of the ministers, and the monarch or governor general may exercise these powers unilaterally in exceptional situations of constitutional crisis, allowing the monarch to ensure that the government behaves in accordance with the Constitution. There are also certain tasks that must be performed specifically by the sovereign, or laws that require the consent of the sovereign; These include the application of the Royal Sign Manual and the seal of New Zealand to Governor General appointment documents, confirmation of the award of New Zealand royal honours and approval of an amendment to the New Zealand title. Succession is governed by cognatic primogeniture of male preference for persons born before 28 October 2011 and absolute primogeniture for persons born after 28 October 2011, with succession passing to the children of a person in order of birth, regardless of gender.  The succession is governed by the Act of Settlement of 1701, the Bill of Rights of 1689 and the Royal Succession Act 2013, laws that also limit succession to the legitimate biological descendants of Sophie of Hanover and stipulate that the monarch cannot be Roman Catholic and must be in communion with the Church of England (i.e. a member of the Church of England) upon accession to the throne. Although with the passage of the Statute of Westminster (later repealed in New Zealand) and the Imperial Laws Application Act 1988, these constitutional documents, as they apply to New Zealand, are now under the full control of the New Zealand Parliament, New Zealand also agreed not to change its rules of succession without the unanimous consent of the other kingdoms. unless the common monarchical relationship is expressly abandoned; a situation that applies symmetrically in all other regions, including the United Kingdom, and which has been compared to a treaty between these countries.  Thus, New Zealand`s succession remains identical to that of the United Kingdom. As such, the rules of succession are not fixed, but can be changed by a constitutional amendment. The Constitution Act, 1986 states that if a regent is appointed in the United Kingdom, he or she shall act as monarch of New Zealand.  This arrangement was created during the 20th century. Since the adoption of the Statute of Westminster in 1931,[n 2] the pan-national crown has had both a common and distinct character, and the role of the sovereign as monarch of New Zealand differs from his position as monarch of the United Kingdom.  As a result of this development, the monarchy ceased to be an exclusively British institution and, in New Zealand, it became a New Zealand institution.
 Nevertheless, for historical reasons, the monarchy is still called « British » in legal and colloquial language;   This is not only contrary to the recognition of a distinctly New Zealand crown by the New Zealand government, but also to the separate title of New Zealand sovereign.  To receive patronage, an organization must prove that it is sustainable and at the highest level in its field. These organizations, such as the Royal New Zealand Returned and Services` Association, identified by the royal prefix, have received patronage from various monarchs and their families. Royal patronage is the decision of the royal person, although the Department of Culture and Heritage will help organizations seek patronage.  Key recommendations for Australia-New Zealand relations included: SY Aurora – Australasian Antarctic Expedition ship Under stricter immigration regulations in 2001, New Zealanders must also obtain permanent residence before they can apply for Australian citizenship. These stricter immigration regulations have led to a decline in the number of New Zealanders acquiring Australian citizenship. In 2016, only 8.4% of the 146,000 New Zealand-born migrants who arrived in Australia between 2002 and 2011 had acquired Australian citizenship. Of these, only 3 per cent of New Zealand-born Maori have acquired Australian citizenship. Researcher Paul Hamer of Victoria University of Wellington said the 2001 changes were part of an Australian policy to screen Pacific Island migrants who had acquired New Zealand citizenship and were seen as a « backdoor » to Australia.
Between 2009 and 2016, there was a 42% increase in New Zealand-born prisoners in Australian prisons.  Permission for publication must be obtained from the Parliamentary Art Collection.

Several developments in Asia between 1949 and 1951 helped transform the United States. Perceptions of the benefits of a formal security arrangement. The communist victory in the Chinese revolution of 1949 seemed to confirm fears that communism was spreading to both East Asia and Europe. In the 1950s, the outbreak of the Korean War prompted Australia and New Zealand to send troops through the United Nations and with NATO allies, demonstrating both their concern for the threat of communism and their commitment to doing their part to contain communism in the region. More importantly, the U.S.
decision to end the occupation of Japan and seek a peace treaty was greeted with much suspicion and disapproval by South Pacific officials, making the U.S. more willing to craft a security treaty to win antipode support for the final peace agreement. In April 1951, U.S. President Harry Truman announced that negotiations on a tripartite security treaty between the United States, Australia, and New Zealand would coincide with negotiations for a final peace treaty with Japan. Both treaties were concluded in mid-1951 and the ANZUS Treaty was ratified by the United States and entered into force in 1952. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said from the levels of Parliament that the event recognised the Queen`s son, « His Majesty King Charles III, as our sovereign ». One of the reasons why New Zealand did not join Australia was the perception that the indigenous Maori population would suffer.  At the time of federation, Indigenous Australians were only allowed to vote if they were previously allowed to vote in their state of residence, unlike Maori in New Zealand, who had the same right to vote since the founding of the colony.
