Was Nepal a protectorate or protected state of British Empire?Edit

A debate on talkpage of Kalapani Territory is going on. I want your view if Nepal was under British suzeirnity. According to a website of UK govt. Nepal was an Independent Kingdom since it's establishment. [1]--- 👤Raju💌 07:03, 19 March 2020 (UTC)

  1. ^ "Two hundred years of Nepal-Britain relations A way forward". Government of United Kingdom. 25 September 2013. Retrieved 17 March 2020. Chandra Shamser’s visit to UK in 1908 kept up the momentum but the next real watershed moment was the signature in 1923 of the Treaty under which the British accepted in writing that Nepal was an independent nation. This was crucial to Nepal’s future. Without it, with Indian independence in 1947 Nepal might have been hard put to it to retain its separate identity.

Merger proposalEdit

Received request to merge British National (Overseas) passport into British National (Overseas) and British passport on 28 July 2021. Reason: The BN(O) passport article has significant overlap with the other two. Background information for the status itself is covered in great detail in the main BN(O) article. Information like endorsements, physical appearance, and issuance are all dealt with in the British passport article. Given that almost the entire BN(O) passport article duplicates information already detailed in the other two articles, I feel that it should be considered for merging. Additionally, the article contains entire sections that are uncited or very poorly cited and contains non-free images (all UK passport images continue to be covered under Crown copyright). Discuss it >>>Here<<<. GenQuest "scribble" 20:55, 29 August 2021 (UTC)
