Reword needed[change source]
It is now very rare for a monarch to object, but the sovereign still retains this prerogative for use if necessary.
This gets across an important point, but "very rare" doesn't really do justice. The last time Royal Assent was refused was by Queen Anne in 1707-08. Tough to reword, though. Soup Dish (talk) 21:28, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
