List of current members of the Privy Council

This is a List of Privy Counsellors of the United Kingdom appointed since the accession of Queen Elizabeth II in 1952. Due to political ties, some prime ministers from Commonwealth realms also are appointed to the British Privy Council as well.

Five Privy Counsellors have resigned during Queen Elizabeth's reign—John Profumo (1963) after misleading the House of Commons, and four others upon criminal conviction carrying a sentence of imprisonment, John Stonehouse (1976), Jonathan Aitken (1997) Chris Huhne (2013) and Denis MacShane (2013);[1] one, Elliot Morley (2011) was expelled (the first expulsion since 1921).[2] Additionally, Lord Prescott, the former Deputy Prime Minister, resigned in 2013 in protest over politicisation of handling of a press complaints charter being considered by the Council.[3]

The oldest Privy Counsellor is Lord Carrington (born 1919). He is also the earliest-appointed member (1959), aside from the Duke of Edinburgh, who was appointed by King George VI in 1951.
