^^ I dunno, I wouldn't hope she'd get thrown off her horse. She at least has shown dignity through her reign. You won't hear of her doing scandalous things. It's a lot better than having Charles as King! She is very "duty driven". Some of the other members of her family are a little different however! Ahem!
I don't think monarchy is too real in this day and age either, however I don't see it being abolished any time real soon. Maybe at least William and Catherine will more modernize the monarchy and make it a bit more real and down to earth to the people. They certainly seem like that type.
Anyhow, she's only a figure head in Canada, so I don't think we have to worry too much about it. But they can be interesting at times.
