The monarchy in England has been largely a ceremonial post for quite some time now, meaning the Queen of England, Elizabeth II, has no real political power, though she still wields a great deal of influence over the political scene in Britain and the royal family remains immensely popular.

The Prime Minister is much like the President in the United States, in that he/she is the Exective of the country, and passing a law requires his/her consent in most cases, and the PM is also the commander of the British military.
