The queen may not've exercised her power much lately, but legally she still can.

She is the head of the British armed forces. She can exercise personal discretion over issues such as appointing the prime minister and dissolving the parliament, and the only person in Britain being able to declare war and peace. This is an unacceptable amount of power for ANY one person to have, and is especially unacceptable if their only qualification to get the job is who their parents were

That's my point. We have our government who we vote in so what is the need for the monarchy? Such an old-fashioned system.

You want people to watch you as you kiss your bodyguards?

A few points need making.

1. The Royal Family is hugely profitable. We pay them not that much money and get a vast amount of tourism in return. Buckingham Palace etc wouldn't be as big a pull if it was just a big house. In London this week we could probably have paid for the wedding just from the cash spent by American TV networks transplanting their entire operation to Trafalgar Square and Green Park.
2. The monarchy has no power. A lot of powers exist as something called "crown perogative". All of which are exercised by the Prime Minister and/or government. technically the monarch can do many things - declare war, dissolve parliament etc. And if she tried to do any of those things an Emergency Powers Act would go through Parliament, she'd resign, and the powers would be formally taken away
3. Its not as if a Presidency is a good idea anyway. Most Brits skin crawl at the idea of a President Thatcher/Blair (delete as appropriate). And from this side of the pond we've watch with great amusement as you elect first a womaniser who fracks anything that walks, then a cretin who half the country thinks is a moron, then a man the other half think is a commienazi foreign muslim.

We have a Queen. She is 85, and with her 89 year old husband still have to spend large chunks of the year consulting the PM signing bills being consulted doing state visits and pretending to be interested at an age where most people are either dead or doubly incontinent.
