  • It's purely ceremonial.

    The monarchy is an outdated institution that needs to be done away with. There's no reason to have a royal family, there are plenty of other dignitaries who can promote the United Kingdom without the expense involved in maintaining these people. We don't need this pointless, expensive decoration when we can barely afford our health care these days.

  • I say we get rid of all the European "constitutional" monarchies, except for two of them

    Spain and Norway.
    England's monarchy is corrupt
    Denmark's monarchy is corrupt
    Many of them still behave like absolute monarchs. It's really annoying
    Sweden is another one.

    The absolute monarchy in the Vatican behaves better than some of the constitutional monarchies. They don't rule over a country. The Vatican is one because the monks and nuns agree to abide by a certain way of living.

  • Oppression! YAY !

    YAY! We celebrate people whose ancestors used to oppress our ancestors and now take money from the taxpayers but have no authority or purpose! YAY!

    Now I must use the remaining words to explain my plot to kill the royal family. I will gouge out their eyes with a spork and mutilate their genitalia. Reproduce now b*tches!

  • They don't do anything!

    I'm British and to be honest, Britain LOVES the monarchy, however I don't see why! Monarchs receive millions of pounds, yet they don't do anything. In fact, the whole royal family don't actually do anything apart from public visits and speeches. It just annoys me that there is such a big fuss of a family, that don't seem to do anything significant. For example: When Kate and William had their child, the country went wild and to be honest, I could sick of hearing about it! Everyone was like: "Oooo, our future king has been born!" My reply was: "And? He's not exactly going to make a difference is he? He's just a new addition to the media's pointless stories!"

  • Monarchy is outdated

    Simply put, monarchy promotes the division of social classes, the luxury and the fashion merchandising and magazine gossips. All this doesn't contribute to the unity and progress of a nation, rather it is an status quo that has been institutionalized under the false appearance of "we are royals humans that can change the world under our position of priviledge, luxury, beauty and old nonsensic traditions". No no no, the power belongs to democracy for all, without the need of the royal-ngo flagship called " monarchy"

  • Of course it is

    Can't think of one good reason why they're still around, let alone them living in perfectly good tourist attractions such as palaces (plenty of lost revenue!!) and getting any taxpayer money whatsoever.. They ought to recognise their utter lack of utility in the modern era and adapt by actually gaining skills where they can contribute to the betterment of society instead of simply wasting oxygen and money

  • Pointless spoiled pampered palace brats

    All I see are a bunch of Uber rich “beautiful people” who have never worked a hard day in their lives and expect to be served. The only reason they have any power whatsoever is due to tradition. We have these types in America as well. Most of them can be found in Hollywood.

  • What's so great about republics?

    Monarchy provides a non-partisan figurehead for a country with whom we can all unite. Elected politicians are invariably divisive figures (by their very nature, they alienate opposition supporters). In political crises, the Monarch can act as an important apolitical arbitrator and the Head of State remains above the political fray (thus offering country stability). There is also a lot more chance for national celebration with a Monarchy; in a republic you're lucky if you get one national event every few decades, Monarchy offers continuous points for retrospection and celebration.

    There is nothing intrinsically better about republics, though there are many advantages to constitutional monarchy - why switch to a worse system?

  • Monarchies are great!

    Monarchy is the best form of government. The monarch does not have to ally itself with economic or political groups to get elected, therefore its only interest is the people's welfare. The most advanced countries in the world are monarchies: Japan, Norway, Denmark, Britain, Sweden and many others. And history tells us that in all countries where the monarchy fell the situation only got worst ( such as Brazil and Russia).
