Effect of death on NR delegation


Can anyone tell me if a NR delegates their power to another, what happens if the original NR dies. Does the delegated NR still hold the NR title or does it then pass to the ‘next in line’?

Reference Guide again, where it is explaining section 32(2) and regulation 24:

2.35 Delegation lapses automatically on the death of the person who made it, or if
that person ceases to be the nearest relative for any other reason. It also
lapses on the death of the person to whom the functions have been
