    The monarch is, constitutionally, supposed to work with and protect Parliament/the UK’s democratic instrument, and be a unifying figurehead to the entire nation. In recent years the Queen has politicised herself (e.g telling Scotland that she wants them to remain in the UK), her husband almost killed a child, and when it came to protecting Parliament

    a few months ago she actually personally supported the Prime Minister’s decision to suspend Parliament in a way that her ancestor did in the 1600s... which kicked off the civil war that caused the monarch to become what it is today. We should’ve put their heads on spikes 300 years ago and been done with it.

    Let’s not forget that her own grandson believes that she hated and assassinated his mother, and she was exposed as having an offshore bank account in the Panama Papers - the journalist who authored it mysteriously died in a car bomb a few weeks after she published them.

    We also have a monachry or some form of it and it is completely useless and a waste of money. I wish we'd just do away with it, but I sadly don't see that happening any time soon.
