I think William will be a good king. Who knows what he might accomplish. I disagree with those on the thread who think the monarchy is nothing, it's an important tradition for the Brits. I'm glad we don't have one, but I think it would be a mistake for the Brits to give it up. It's such a part of their history and if it was removed, a lot of what makes Britain....well...British, would be gone forever.
I also agree that tradition is important, and enjoyed the changing role of the Royals in The Madness of King George. As good will ambassadors, their weath is certain, their powers, other than their own bully pulpits, are pretty honorary I would think. But either way, people around the world have a fondness for The Queen, and It does present a dignified image of the best of British culture.
