The balance of powers in Britain is much like that of the United States; it was actually what inspired the founding fathers in the development of American politics. The parliament can prevent the Prime Minister from passing bills, much like the American congress can prevent the president from signing bills into law.

No. King Charles I was executed for some serious crimes he did, and when he was executed, the parliament abolish the monarchy, but when Cromwell died, the Restoration of the monarchy had been made, BUT, they made a constitution to limit the kings or Queen powers.

By law the monarchy has no legal power in England anymore, they are more part of a ceremonial role that just signs their name at the bottom of laws. Parliament could dissolve the monarchy if it had to, but considering the monarchy acts as head of state and greets foreign Nationals, it is more convenient to keep them than to go through the hassle of changing the system.

It was the Civil War, where the Parliament declared War on the King. The Monarchy was abolished for about 10 years with Oliver Cromwell leading the country as a dictator. Afterwards, both Parliament and the Monarchy were restored, with the Monarchy accepting limited power.
