Dismantle the royal family and give all land holdings to the UK govenment.

Not that the tories would use it to help the British people any better I guess.

She'll be dead by the end of the year.

Never even searched for this.  Bravo.  I have no opinion on UK politics other than shiatting on people who do, so I don't care about this other than Queen meeting the Queen, whichever side you assign, has to be a tentpole moment.

Well crap. I searched some more and it looks like that's a wax figure of the Queen.

Because that's exactly what happened when Louis XVI was executed, Nicholas II was executed, Wilhelm II and Karl I abdicated, Umberto II abdicated...

She won't abdicate. To her abdication is what you do when you fail and a true monarch dies on the throne.

Even if she can't perform her duties, she will have Charles or William perform them in her name.

/Plus it is still about two and a half years for her to pass Louis XIV for the record

Good news!  The land holdings have benefited the elected government's treasury rather than the monarch since 1760 - Crown Estate.  I doubt the British electorate would vote in a government that had the abolition of the monarchy as an agenda point while Liz is alive, I think there's too much attachment there because of how long she's reigned, but it may be a whole other kettle of fish once Charles is on the throne.

Um, have you forgotten Britain's flirt with a republic government under religious-fanatic/buzzkill Oliver Cromwell?
The arsehole banned dancing, drinking & Christmas.
