Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Indeed - the central issue isn't guilt or innocence, it's whether the Executive is effectively above the law, because the judiciary can argue that any interaction between the Executive and the Monarch is constitutionally non-justiciable.

The latter line is in direct conflict with the sovereignty of Parliament.

You can't have both. Either Parliament is truly sovereign, or the Executive can shut it down on a whim by giving any old excuse to His or Her Maj.

One or the other has to go.
