What does the Queen of England and the rest of the family actually do?
I recently heard that the queen is super popular and that the royalty is just as relevant as ever but i never hear anyone explain why.
When searching on google I only find non answers like:
-She opens parliament but if she didn't it would be a huge scandal
-She talks to the pm regularly but can't actually suggest anything and has to stay neutral
-She "brings" tourism by just existing
-She is a patron of a lot of charities
Seems to me she's just an overpriced celebrity with no discernable skill or use. At least other celebrities "do" something to be famous whether it's sports music or other entertainment.
