    Of the top 25 nations on the United Nations Human Development Index, for example, 12 are constitutional monarchies, and seven are their close cousins, parliamentary republics. Just two are presidencies.

    That's pretty slippery. I don't see much difference between a parliamentary republic and the constitutional republic that the US is. President ~= Prime Minister in most cases. Adding a toothless, but titular monarch doesn't do much for governance, as far as I can tell.

    There's also no comparison between how one can feel towards even an excellent PM (like Harold Wilson) and how one can feel about The Queen.

    Not having the head of state in a governance role is rather the point and I'm sorry you don't get it.

    Those are hard to understand too, but easier to ignore and avoid.
