The Queen

Abstract

Every country needs a titular head — someone to represent the state at great functions, someone to entertain or honour visitors on behalf of the rest of us, someone to maintain continuity while political leaders come and go. Throughout much of the world, hereditary kings and queens have been discarded and elected presidents put in their place; in some countries the ceremonial head of state and the political head of state are combined in one person (as they were in the heyday of kings), but without the age-old idea of passing power on to the leader’s child.
