  Sealand Vicinity Map Sealand is an abandoned World War II anti-aircraft platform in the Thames Estuary. It is just outside Great Britain's 3-mile territorial water limit.

In 1967, it was occupied by a British businessman, Roy Bates, and his family. He proclaimed himself Prince Roy and the platform to be the Principality of Sealand.

The British Home Office (Interior Ministry) issued a statement saying that in the British government's view Sealand remains British territory.

Any "Sealand license plate" is to be considered a fake or souvenir.
