The Great Seal of England.

The Great Seal of England – also known as the Great Seal of the Realm – which has been used since the 11th century to signify the approval and authentication of state documents by the monarch. Originally made by pressing an engraved matrix into a wax and resin mixture, the Great Seal served as an accessible means of pictorial expression to show that an official document had been approved by the sovereign during a time when much of the population of England could not read or write.

The below Age newspaper report from 29 February 1936 reveals the true significance of the seal and that we are ruled by the seal as it commands the exercise of Royal Power, simply the Monarch is helpless without it.
