#Monarchy or republic in GB?
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is one of the few developed countries of the world where a constitutional monarchy has survived with its ages-old customs, traditions and ceremonies, while the majority of European monarchies were swapped away or changed into republics through wars and revolutions. the Queen has almost absolute power. She can choose anybody she likes to run the government. If she gets fed up with her ministers she can gust dismiss them. She can also summon a Parliament and it is she, who dissolves it before a general elections. Today the monarchy is one of the greatest tourist attractions: Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Windsor Castle are on the list of priorities for most of tourists visiting Britain. The British monarchy as an institution hasn’t been a burning issue in British politics for several hundred years. But during the last two decades of the XX century more and more people support the idea of Britain becoming a republic. Monarchy loses its positions, though the Queen herself remains popular, but the various marital problems of her family have lowered the prestige of royalty in many people’s eyes.
