The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster is a ministerial office in the Government of the United Kingdom that includes as part of its duties the administration of the estates and rents of the Duchy of Lancaster. Formally, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster is appointed by the Sovereign on the advice of the Prime Minister, is answerable to Parliament for the governance of the Duchy. In modern times, the involvement of the Chancellor in the running of the day-to-day affairs of the Duchy is slight, the office is held by a senior politician whose main role is quite different. In practical terms, it is a sinecure, allowing the Prime Minister to appoint an additional minister without portfolio to the Cabinet of the United Kingdom. Michael Gove was appointed to the post on 24 July 2019, the role was endowed with responsibility for advising the Prime Minister on policy development and implementation around Brexit; the Chancellor was the chief officer in the daily management of the Duchy of Lancaster and the County Palatine of Lancaster, but that estate is now run by a deputy, leaving the Chancellor as a member of the Cabinet with little obligation in regard to the Chancellorship.
The position has been given to a junior Cabinet minister with responsibilities in a particular area of policy for which there is no department with an appropriate portfolio. In 1491 the office of Vice-Chancellor of the County Palatine of Lancaster was created; the position is now held by a judge of the Chancery Division of the High Court of Justice, who sits in the north west of England, is no longer appointed to that position as legal officer of the Duchy. In recent times the Chancellor's duties have been said to occupy an average of one day a week. Under the Promissory Oaths Act 1868, the Chancellor is required to take the oath of allegiance and the Official Oath; the holder of the sinecure is a minister without portfolio. The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster is entitled to a salary under the Ministerial and other Salaries Act 1975, but section 3 of the Act provides that the salary "shall be reduced by the amount of the salary payable to him otherwise than out of moneys so provided in respect of his office".
The Office of the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster is part of the Cabinet Office. From 1997 until 2009, the holder of the title served as the Minister for the Cabinet Office; this applied in the case of Alan Milburn, given the title by Prime Minister Tony Blair in 2004 and at the same time rejoined the Cabinet. However, in the reshuffle of 5 June 2009, the Chancellorship went to the Leader of the House of Lords, the Baroness Royall. In David Cameron's first cabinet, the Chancellorship remained with the Leader of the House of Lords until 2014. Prior to Mr Gove the position was most held by David Lidington following a Cabinet reshuffle on 8 January 2018; the holder of the post prior to him was Patrick McLoughlin, given the post following Theresa May's appointment as Prime Minister. Before this the holder of the post was Oliver Letwin, appointed in July 2014 when he was Minister for Government Policy. Michael Gove, as Chancellor, has been given responsibility over the Cabinet Office, but does not hold the ministerial position.
In addition to administering the estates and rents of the Duchy of Lancaster, the Chancellor is a member of the cabinet and advises the Prime Minister on the development and implementation of government policy. In addition, the Chancellor is presently responsible for: Chairing and deputy chairing Cabinet committees Implementing government business Overseeing committees and implementation taskforces, devolution consequences of the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union, constitutional affairs Providing oversight to all Cabinet Office policies List of Chancellors of the Duchy of Lancaster Lord Privy Seal Minister without portfolio County Palatine of Lancaster This article contains quotations from this source, available under the Open Government Licence v3.0. © Crown copyright

In the match, held on 21 June at the Mestalla in Valencia, Real Madrid defeated FC Barcelona 2-1 in the first El Clásico final, it was Real Madrid's 7th title in their 15th final, while Barcelona appeared for the 16th time and were denied their 13th title. The match is remembered for the "impossible save" by Madrid goalkeeper Ricardo Zamora, which denied Barcelona's Josep Escolà from scoring a last-minute equaliser; this is the most remembered save in the history of Spanish football.
