Are the Royal Marines part of the Royal Navy itself?

Hi All,
Are the Royal Marines a totally separate service within the Naval Service, in the same way that the Royal Fleet Auxiliary (as far as I know) is within the Naval Service, but not part of the Royal Navy; or are the Royal Marines part of the Royal Navy itself?

Cheers,
Steven

This is a wah, surely?

RFA is a civilian organisation. RM is a fighting arm of the RN.
