Why would an American care to acknowledge royalty? It is a foreign concept to us.

No tea with the Queen, no ride in that gold-plated carriage, no banquet at Buckingham Palace, and I'm guessing no photo op with Princess Charlotte either.

That's fine he's not going to.

Still expecting massive protests though.

So state, and government are separate? Hmmm, interesting system you have over there. I'm glad we rebelled, and told King George where to put his scepter.

The Government and the State are seperate, as are Parliament which scrutinises Government as well as the Courts and Legal System.

Whilst the Monarch has few real powers, they are the Head of State, and if you join the British Armed Forces you swear allegiance to the Monarch and Country rather than the Government.
