United Kingdom: what future for the monarchy?

Elizabeth II is still there and continues to rule the United Kingdom from her Windsor Castle. But his public appearances are becoming increasingly rare.

Where the Queen is still head of state, some opposition is rising in these former British colonies across the planet. Recently the island of Barbados severed ties with the British monarchy, an example that other countries may well follow.
