Das Parlament des Vereinigten Königreichs (englisch Parliament of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland; kurz: UK Parliament) ist ein britisches Verfassungsorgan. Es besteht aus zwei Kammern – dem House of Commons (Unterhaus) und dem House of Lords (Oberhaus) –, die beide im Palace of Westminster in der britischen Hauptstadt London tagen; zudem bildet der jeweilige Monarch (die „Krone“; engl. crown) – seit 1952 Königin Elisabeth II. – den dritten Teil des Parlaments, hat jedoch nur begrenzte Kompetenzen in der Gesetzgebung.Die besondere Stellung des britischen Parlaments liegt in seiner Parlamentssouveränität.
