Either way, I'm visiting the UK again after I finish school. Last time I went, It was just chilling in one area to watch American Football over there, this time... I have a whole new agenda, love that accent
I think you'll find there's 27p in a pound, when you come over come and see me and i'll change up all your money for you

IMO, the royal family should be liquidated, all of it's assets seized and auctioned off.. the proceeds of which should go into social programs for the poor.
In a true republic, even a fake monarchy wouldn't be allowed to exist.
They get their money from the civil list.
As has already been said, we're not a republic, the Queen has to approve the Prime minister and still has the power to disolve parliment. Just like all our laws have to through the unelected House of Lords before they become ratified.
It seems Americans know very little about the UK.
