  • In the United Kingdom, a Deputy Lieutenant is a Crown appointment and one of several deputies to the Lord Lieutenant of a lieutenancy area: an English ceremonial county, Welsh preserved county, Scottish lieutenancy area, or Northern Irish county borough or county. In formal style, the postnominal letters DL may be added: e.g. John Brown, CBE, DL. Should the subject have numerous more important honorifics these postnoms may be omitted, although this is rare. Deputy Lieutenants are nominated by the Lord Lieutenant, to assist with any duties as may be required: see the Lieutenancies Act 1997; Deputy Lieutenants receive their commission of appointment via the appropriate HM Government Minister by command of The Queen. In England and Wales, since November 2001, the government minister responsible for most appointments is the Lord Chancellor, with exceptions such as the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. In Scotland, since July 1999 it has been the Scottish Ministers. Decades ago, the number of Deputy Lieutenants for each county could be as few as three. Today, however, there may be well over a dozen that are appointed as the number of DLs today correlates with the population of each respective county. DLs tend to be people who either have served the local community, or have a history of public service in other fields. DLs represent the Lord Lieutenant in his or her absence, including at local ceremonies and official events, from opening exhibitions to inductions of vicars (as requested by the Church of England). They must live within their ceremonial county, or within seven miles (11 km) of its boundary. Their appointments do not terminate with any change of Lord Lieutenant, but they are legally required to retire at age of 75. One of the serving Deputy Lieutenants is appointed to be Vice-Lieutenant, who in most circumstances will stand in for the Lord Lieutenant when he or she cannot be present. The appointment as Vice-Lieutenant does, however, expire on the retirement of the Lord Lieutenant who made the choice. Generally, the Vice-Lieutenant would then revert to DL. Unlike the office of Lord Lieutenant, which is an appointment in the gift of the Sovereign, the position of Deputy Lieutenant is an appointment of the Sovereign's appointee, namely the Government or the Crown, and therefore not strictly speaking a direct appointment of the Sovereign.

  • Un Deputy Lieutenant est au Royaume-Uni l'un des adjoints d'un Lord Lieutenant attaché à une zone de lieutenance (en) particulière : comtés cérémoniaux d'Angleterre, comtés préservés du Pays de Galles (en), régions de lieutenance d'Écosse et comtés d'Irlande. * Portail du Royaume-Uni Portail du Royaume-Uni (fr)
  • O título de Deputy Lieutenant é, no Reino Unido, conferido aos delegados do Lord-Lieutenant que representa o monarca em situações cerimoniais num condado ou circunscrição semelhante, podendo, quando nomeado para tal, representar o Lord-Lieutenant na sua ausência. O número máximo de Deputy Lieutenants permitido num condado pode atingir várias dúzias, e está diretamente relacionado com a densidade populacional do condado. Os Deputy Lieutenants tendem a ser nomeados dentre indivíduos ativos na comunidade local, ou com um historial de serviço ativo noutras áreas e têm, obrigatoriamente, de residir no condado, ou a uma distância não superior a 11 km da fronteira. Aos detentores do título é permitido o uso das letras pós-nominais "DL" sendo, contudo, omitidas se o indivíduo for detentor de muitas honras e títulos. Os Deputy Lieutenants são nomeados pelo Lord-Lieutenant local, de modo a que estes o assistam no cumprimento dos seus deveres sempre que uma situação assim o requerir. Os Deputy Lieutenants só entram em funções, todavia, quando o Lord Chancellor comunica que o monarca não discorda da nomeação. Se o Lord-Lieutenant mudar enquanto se encontram no cargo, os Deputies Lieutenants não cessam de exercer funções, passando a ser delegados do próximo Lord-Lieutenant. (pt)
