British Armed forces naming question

Posted by /u/fortyowls12 on

Can someone explain to me why countries of the world that have navy names such as "Royal Saudi Navy", "Royal Australian Navy", "Royal Thai Navy", yet the British are just "Royal Navy" - with the word being accepted to mean the British, rather than them having to say "Royal British Navy". It seems this is also the case for their airforce, being the "Royal Air Force", as opposed to other nations which have to put their name into it?

Is there a reason for this? where they the first to have a royal navy/royal airforce and so were able to do this, or is there some other reason?
