A Commonwealth realm is a sovereign state that is a member of the British Commonwealth, has Queen Elizabeth II as its reigning constitutional monarch, and has a royal line of succession in common with the other realms. There are four Commonwealth realms.

The Statute of Westminster 1931 provided for the then-Dominions — named therein as Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Union of South Africa, the Irish Free State, and Newfoundland — to have full or nearly full legislative independence as equal members of the British Commonwealth, sharing with the United Kingdom one person as the respective sovereign of each. Since then, South Africa and Ireland have become republics, and Newfoundland has been incorporated into Canada as a province.
