People were saying "I'm so proud to be British". If the monarchy constitutes being British then I'm ashamed to be a Brit. The Queen is like a neglected ornament; you polish her and make her sparkly on the special occasions then you stick her back inside because no one cares. It's all pomp, it symbolises a blue-blooded rule in which is anything but what we want to go back to.

I couldn't agree more. It's hard to be a part of a country which blindly follows/thinks that the monarchy is a good thing. I really wish we had a constitution which stops power of not only monarchy but religion too. Secularism isn't something we adopt in this part of the world unfortunately.
