The Queen and the GG don't really have much power anymore, by convention she typically acts on the advice of the PM.  The Queen herself does nothing, the GG does everything.  But I think the position of GG is needed as a check on the power of a PM who could potentially go bonkers.

If the Queen were abolished we would just have the GG in her stead.  I don't really have any use for the royals, but I also don't mind the tradition of the crown.

I think the Quebecois would be very happy to get rid of the british monarchy.  It might be good on the unity front because they have never accepted the fact that the Brits defeated the French in the Seven Years War.  Though I don't think it would stop the Quebecois from complaining about something.  I wonder if Quebec would sign the constitution in exchange for getting rid of the monarchy.

The whole thing with Meghan and Harry is just drama.  She should have known what she signed up for.  There's 2 sides to every story.  I really don't like them or the rest of the royals so i don't feel bad for any of them.  I do like Prince George in his knee-high socks though.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.
