ROTFL! In the past, when the British have wanted to do away with the
monarchy, or a particular monarch, they did. When they want to in future
they will.

The modern monarchy and its trappings are huge money spinners for the
UK. No point in killing the cash cow. Bear in mind that the Queen does
pay income taxes and that the Crown Estates in Central London and
elsewhere provide valuable office and living space.
