      You're really "up" on this stuff, I see.

      Maybe, but then look at Canada which has a parliament which made that boy its Prime Minister because he had the Trudeau name.

      Isn't Justin Trudeau more than forty years old if so he surely is an adult man rather than a boy.
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      Is that the only way you'd judge it?

      Yes, and because he is Prime Minister and clearly an able one at that.

      Oh, yeh. This is the fellow who thought it cute to spite the USA by inviting the world's migrants and refugees to come to the wonderfully welcoming country of Canada...and then later complained that Canada was being overrun by the swarm because 500 or so of them had entered Manitoba over a period of months. Maybe Mr. "Diversity is our strength" Trudeau would have profited from a little more preparation before assuming the position of PM.

      Don't worry Albion. you will not be PM of anyplace any time soon so you need not get preparation anxiety.

      Why would it be up to the UK? They have no control over Australia.

      I suspect that USAns may think that a head of state in a Parliamentary democracy has executive powers. Their President is like a King so they may assume that the Queen is like their President - heaven forbid that anybody would think her like Donald!

      Each of the Commonwealth Realms is a monarchy in and of itself. What one chooses to do with its monarchy has no effect on the others. Even if the United Kingdom became a republic, each of the other Realms would remain monarchies with the current Queen as their monarch unless they independently chose become republics themselves.
