Royal Prerogative
The ROYAL PREROGATIVE is a body of customary authority, privilege, and immunity, recognized in common law and, sometimes, in civil law jurisdictions possessing a monarchy, as belonging to the sovereign alone. It is the means by which some of the executive powers of government, possessed by and vested in a monarch with regard to the process of governance of the state, are carried out. In most Constitutional monarchies individual prerogatives can be abolished by Parliament, although in the United Kingdom

Though some republican heads of state also possess similar powers, they are not necessarily exactly the same as in every jurisdiction, and may have a number of fundamental differences both in the method of enforcement and extent of the powers available to the state's Chief Executive

Presbyterian Polity
PRESBYTERIAN (OR PRESBYTERAL) POLITY is a method of church governance ("ecclesiastical polity") typified by the rule of assemblies of presbyters , or elders. Each local church is governed by a body of elected elders usually called the SESSION or consistory , though other terms, such as church board, may apply. Groups of local churches are governed by a higher assembly of elders known as the PRESBYTERY or CLASSIS; presbyteries can be grouped into a SYNOD, and presbyteries and synods nationwide often join together in a GENERAL ASSEMBLY. Responsibility for conduct of church services is reserved to an ordained minister or pastor known as a teaching elder, or a minister of the word and sacrament. Presbyterian polity

Doctrine
DOCTRINE (from Latin : doctrina) is a codification of beliefs or a body of teachings or instructions, taught principles or positions, as the essence of teachings in a given branch of knowledge or belief system . The Greek analogue is the etymology of catechism . Often doctrine specifically suggests a body of religious principles as it is promulgated by a church, but not necessarily; doctrine is also used to refer to a principle of law, in the common law traditions, established through a history of past decisions, such as the doctrine of self-defense , or the principle of fair use , or the more narrowly applicable first-sale doctrine . In some organizations, doctrine is simply defined as "that which is taught", in other words the basis for institutional teaching of its personnel internal ways of doing business
