Oath of Allegience (United Kingdom) Please Read

The Oath of Allegiance (Judicial or Official Oath) is a promise to be loyal to the British monarch, and their heirs and successors, sworn by certain public servants in the United Kingdom, and also by newly naturalised subjects in citizenship ceremonies.
The Oaths Act 1888 (51 & 52 Vict. c.46) set out provisions whereby the oath may be solemnly affirmed rather than sworn to God. The Act was consolidated and repealed by the Oaths Act 1978.[1]
The current oath of allegiance is set out from the Promissory Oaths Act 1868 in the following form:
I, (Insert full name), do swear that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, her heirs and successors, according to law. So help me God.

The Victorian promissory oaths of allegiances, are set out in the Promissory Oaths Act 1868 in the following form:
  • The original oath of allegiance as set out in the 1868 Oaths Act:
  • The original oath of office as set out in the 1868 Oaths Act:
  • The original judicial oath as set out in the 1868 Oaths Act:
