The people of Britain continue have a monarch because of tradition. There is a small republican movement, but the vast majority of people in the United Kingdom appear to be quite content with having a constitutional monarchy i.e. one in which the monarch is the figurehead and the exercise of political and judicial power rests with politicians and judges respectively.
