O lord the Kings and Queens have been very unpleaseing around the world for centureys.
I have heard him speak of the Ireland he wished to see. When he struck the spark on the anvil, he struck the anvil in my heart. When I leave school, the only pursuit I want to engage in is the winning of the freedom of my country. Michael Collins

the british monarchy has been up and down fro 100's of yrs................i mean you look at the terror it has caused.........................James 1t was plotted to be killed due to fact him be originally born a catholic but being withheld of it from elizabeth 1st and brought up as a prod. so mr. guyflaks plotted revenger as james 1st wouldn't take the supression off the catholic laws that were being withheld against the catholic church.............
this boils down to henry 8th hating catholicism...................
elizabeth had mary queen of scots.................so elizabeth 1st wouldn't be over thrown by a scot!
so you look at the corruption that lead at least 100's down our thrown lol
Till victoria 1st came into play....................50yrs ruling and the mother of elizabeth 2's father (can't rem his name lol) so in reality the royal family ruling are a different blood line that started at victoria 1st.
I think I may be corrected very soon on this lol
Either way ngland have had a thrown for who can remember and it has be a status that has always been respected whether or not theyhave done the wrong thing through out life! So you take awya the thrown you take away alot of people's faith and heritage.................
If that makes sense....................for americans its like taking away your forfathers or what they are called...............sorry my usa history is not that good lol

Isn't God save the queen their Royal Anthem. Also They stay around because there a consyitutional monarchy which means that they actually have a lot of duties.
And when he gets to heaven,
To Saint Peter he will tell:
One more soldier reporting, sir--
I\'ve served my time in h**l.

The British monarchy will likely last a good deal longer. Many may not be so enamoured with Prince Charles, but his sons certainly have inherited the good will their mother engendered. Bit of a flap right now about Prince Harry's choice of wear for a costume party. Probably a bad choice but sheesh he's just a kid. Not like he wears it every day. I'm sure there's no contoversy over where his political sympathies lie so seems like a tempest in a teapot to me. These kinds of things seem to be the bulk of what we hear about the royals in the States. Much a do about nothing to borrow from Shakespeare. They are Britain's paramount celebrities that's all there is to it. Nice to keep a history. Nothing wrong with that. Seems to me that though as MichaelO pointed out they do have some power, it is well enough limited. The people determine the country's control in the end.
