Excellent question Darius jan. The answer is as I said above: by the people pf Britain. Just look at the river Thames pagent currently underway at this very moment. This is the PEOPLE's Pagent. It's the people of Britain who keep their monarchy in place and as we see now they are celebrating the sixtieth anniversary of their Queen's reign in the most spectacular fashion never seen before.
