With a constitutional monarchy the Queen is the head of state and her assent is needed for forming a new government - although this is not of much real impact all Members of Parliament do swear an oath of allegiance to the monarch Control of English Government The British government is run b…y the Prime Minister, currently David Cameron. He is head of the administration. . Theoretically the leader of the elected party has the position of Prime Minister, and he presides over a Cabinet of Ministers of various departments, health, education, defence, etc. The Cabinet discuss and formulate government policy then recommend their decision to the House of Commons, formed of elected members from all over the UK. 659 members of all parties. The House votes upon the recommendation and if it is carried it becomes government policy if it is defeated it does not. (Most measures have to be passed by the House of Lords, too). . In practice the elected party has a majority of members (called seats) and so the Prime Minister is usually able to ensure that all items are passed, although if the opposition parties members can combine their votes it may be defeated. A defeat in the House of Commons usually only happens if some members of the governing party rebel. It is possible for a minority government to hold power - one where the largest party does not have an overall majority in the House of Commons - but these seldom last and are ineffectual unless they can broker a deal with one of the other parties.. The only right of the Queen in the UK according to the Ministry of Justice, is the right to be consulted. In practice that means the Government is legally free to ignore her advice. The Queen is still held in great respect by the people so the Government has that to consider if her displeasure becomes known. That last part isn't true. The royal family isn't particularly popular. Furthermore, they are expected to stay away from politics altogether. (Having said that, Prince Charles does make public remarks from time to time, usually in support of organic farming or something similar.) Control of power can depend on a number of factors. Officially all power stems from the Head of State, the Queen, although her powers are mostly viewed as ceremonial. Since Peel in the 18C the position of Prime Minister has been the most significant one and it is the holder of this role as leader of his party, who is responsible for key appointments and for chairing the Cabinet which meets daily to decide policy. Limits to the power of PM include a small majority in the Commons, which makes him prey to factional influence from his and opposition parties, economic conditions and personality. Since the early 20C the PM must be a member of the Commons and therefore there is also a leader for each party in the second chamber, which is the House of Lords. At different times and under different circumstances the limits to the power of the PM are also varied. Mrs Thatcher from 1983 had a substantial majority in the Commons and a forceful personality. She was therefore perceived to be very much in control. The previous PM had been James Callaghan who led a minority administration and could not impose his will on a Labour party riven by factional fighting. He is therefore seen to be a weak leader. Other factors can include external politics - Eden's position was fatally weakended by US opposition to the Suez crisis. In previous decades one constant in Govt was the Civil Service and arguments have been made that true power was vested in this body. Since the 80s this has been eroded by the prevalence of political advisers to such an extent that now this group is identified as a power in itself. From this stems the criticism of Alistair Campbell under Blair and to some extent (because he is not voted into office but ennobled for political reasons) Peter Mandelson. The government, with David Cameron as Prime Minister. (MORE)
England was a monarchy until 1688 CE. While it was the monarchystate, parliament's power was limited by the ruler. After theGlorious Revolution of 1688, England became a constitutionalmonarchy and parliament had more power than the ruler.
Parliamentary Monarchy. The Queen is the head of state, but thePrime Minister runs the country. . The UK is both a Constitutional Monarchy and a ParliamentaryDemocracy.
Answer . Great Britain includes England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. It is also called the United Kingdom. It has a Parliamentary Democracy, with a house of Commons and a upper House of Lords. The Lords are not elected, being appointed, but the members of Parliament are elected by the v…oters.. Parliament is made up of elected members, each of whom represents a "ryding" or district in the country. The ryding boundaries are based on population density, with each one having about 100,000 citizens.. When a General Election is held, the voters cast their ballots for the candidate that they think will represent them well in Parliament. A candidate may be a member of a political party, or a may run as a Independant, with no party affiliation at all.. The party that elects the most members to the House, after the election has been held, will form the Governing Party, and the leader of that party will become the Prime Minister. His or her Cabinet will be selected from the members of his/her party, by the P.M. I have used his/her because un-like the USA, Great Britain has all ready had a female Prime Minster, Mrs Thatcher.. The party that has the next largest number of members in the House wiil form the Loyal Opposition, and their duty is to ask questions of the Government party and make ammedments to suggested bills before the House. Each day the House is sitting, the P.M., or his Deputy P.M., is required to be present to answer questions as are all Cabinet Ministers. Question Period is the first 90 minutes of each sitting day. Ministers are allowed two days to bring forth an answer, to a question that has been raised in the Question Period.. The Govenment of Great Britain is currently headed by Tony Blair, the Prime Minister. The Government rules with the approval of the Monarch, Queen Elizabeth the Second. She has traditionally been "taken into confidence " on all bills.. The Monarch remains aloof from day to day politics.. Correction . The electoral divisions for parliamentaty elections are called constituencies. (At one time Yorkshire had three ridings, but they have had no official existence since 1974). (MORE)

Her Majesty's Government is the leadership, under Queen ElizabethII, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Nothern Ireland. Led by the Prime Minister and the ministers that he selects, 22 ofthese ministers, along with the Prime Minister, make up thedecision-making body, known as the Cabinet.
The US government is loosely based upon the British governmentstructure, so there are obviously going to be some similarities,but they are quite different in how they function. The British government is, of course, traditionally ruled by themonarch- at this time, Queen Elizabeth II. She is the "hea…d ofstate", meaning she is technically in charge of the whole country,and when she visits another country, she more or less representsthe country as a whole. However, in practice, the Queen rarely doesany actual governing or ruling- she leaves that to the government. The government is run by the Parliament. Parliament is a lot likethe US Congress, but has different rules. It has two houses, justlike Congress- the House of Commons, which is almost the same asthe House of Representatives, and the House of Lords, which issimilar to the US Senate- except, as the name suggests, the membersare Lords- they have noble titles or are high ranking priests inthe Anglican Church (in the US, we call it the Episcopal Church).In the US, the Senate and House are largely equal, although eachhas its own duties. In Parliament, most of the real work is done bythe Commons and the Lords mostly just double-check the work done bythe Commons. Members of the House of Commons represent differentareas of the country, just like members of the House ofRepresentatives. The House of Commons passes laws and handles the budget, much likethe House of Representatives. Additionally, they choose theCabinet- in the US, the President and his Cabinet are almosttotally separate from Congress, but in Parliament, the PrimeMinster and the Cabinet are a part of the House of Commons. Thepolitical party with the most members ("seats") in Parliament getsto choose who is the Prime Minister and who are the members of theCabinet. If no party has a majority of the seats, then two or moreparties can join together in a coalition, so that their totalcombined seats make a majority- then the parties decide amongthemselves how to split up the Cabinet. The Prime Minister is a lot like the President of the US, except heis considered "first among equals"- he is not in total command ofthe Cabinet. In the US, the President is in charge- if his Cabinetdisagrees, then it doesn't matter, he gets his way. In the BritishCabinet, the Prime Minister is not in command- he holds more cloutand has a good deal of decision-making power, but ultimately theCabinet members run their respective departments and are able to dothings the Prime Minister might not want. The Prime Minister is theleader of the majority party, or the leader of the biggest party ina coalition; this can be a good thing, because it means that hewill usually not have to face the gridlock we see in the USgovernment now (with Republicans in charge of Congress but aDemocratic President). Unlike the US, elections are not always scheduled exactly the same.In the US, federal elections are always held in November,usually on the first Tuesday. In the UK, the elections are set bythe Prime Minister when he formally asks the Queen to "dissolveParliament". The elections are then held a few weeks later.Parliament sessions are not allowed to last more than five years,so the Prime Minister has to ask the Queen for dissolution beforethe five year term is up. However, these elections can be triggeredat any time- if the Prime Minister fails to pass certain bills,notably a budgetary bill, then it triggers a new election. Or, ifthe Prime Minister loses control of his political party or doessomething really wrong, Parliament can hold a "vote of noconfidence", passage of which also triggers a new election. That's a relatively quick summary. It should be noted that manycountries in Europe, as well as many in Africa and Asia, have somevariation of the British "Parliamentary system", to include the"Semi-Presidential system" that countries like France and Russiause (in this system, it's almost exactly the same as what the UKuses, except they also have an elected President who has a lot ofpower). The US and most of Central/South America use the"Presidential system". The differences are largely noted above. (MORE)
I think you can count from 1046 with the Battle of Hastings and William the Conqueror winning the crown. He was more powerful and in control than anyone before him.
technically England has a constitutional monarchy, which is a a form of government in which a monarch acts as head of state within the perimeters of a written (i.e., codified), unwritten (i.e., uncodified) or blended constitution. However, realistically England simply has a first past the post democ…ratic system of parliament. The Head of state is purely for ceremonial purposes now, i.e. the Queen has no power. She has no mandate to make any laws as she is not an elected body, and therefore is just a figure head and, ultimately, a diplomatic tool, with which the country can pacify countries by sending the head of state to ceremonial events, freeing up time for the elected body to actually govern.

Constitutional monarchy is the type of government currently in place in England. The change from an absolute monarchy to a constitutional monarchy took place in 1688 with the Glorious Revolution.
The question is hard to answer as you don't say which specific changes you have in mind. As a general rule ordinary people were in medieval times not much affected by changes in Government which anyway was mostly one king succeeding another. The effect of those changes was mostly indirect, as some k…ings were good administrators, and others were not. Changes of Kings mostly affected the position and power of the noble families around the King's court. The only change that in that era really affected ordinary people was the invasion and victory of William the Conqueror, as it caused the people's Saxon local overlords to be replaced by Norman lords.
