Could the Isle of Wight become a crown dependency?
- Anonymous1 year agoFavourite answer
No more or less than any other part of the United Kingdom. It is now its own county, but relies on Hampshire to provide its police force. It used to have its own Governor, but I think that post fizzled out over twenty years ago. There is no reason in theory that it could not have a similar status to, say, the Channel Islands, but it is unlikely to gain much by doing that.

The Isle of Wight is an odd mix of high security prisons and tourists - so it has all the attributes one would expect of a Crown Dependency.

Why? It is an English county,and the largest and second-most populous island in England. There is no need for the Isle of Wight to have its own government and be a territory for which the UK is responsible; Wight is part of the UK, the British monarch and Parliament being its government.Source(s): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crown_dependencies https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isle_of_Wight

No because it'doesn't have its own parliament and it's part of Hampshire.
