Ah, right. I thought you saw having a low profile head of state as a problem, but clearly not. It would leave a gap in some people's lives but I think I would get used to it very quickly.
Almost all are low profile or, more likely, only of interest to people in their own country. All for the best I think.
And think how it would look to future generations when they learned that there was a time when the UK had a well established democracy but still had a ruling family. It is very odd when you think about it.
Is it a true democracy when people cannot choose a head of state or vote for who sits in the second chamber of Parliament?
