They can exist, but they just have to be useful.
If they're going to be constitutional monarchs, they better be neutral, actually help pass laws that MAKE SENSE and not clash or create chaos for the operating government.

Basically, if they just sit around the throne collecting tax money and getting fanned by some below-minimum-wage fanners, they can just quit that mess and I don't know, do some charity work or something.

It is no worse than any other form of government.

I wish there were absolute monarchies today instead of constitutional ones.

But seriously Monarchy is probably the most direct form of government, its just a matter of if you get a good king who genuinely cares about his people or a bad king.

I don't think there's a need, but I'm not opposed to the idea.

It's a complete waste of tax money. Although to be fair, the monarchy is the only thing we brits have to prove that we're british now. Every other bit of culture and individuality we had has been taken over.

We have 1 in the White House now. Jury is still undecided whether he is setting a precedent or just a 1-shot experiment in governance. My opinion about the English monarchy is mixed. It looks like a nice tourism hook but can the British citizenry really afford to foot the lifestyle bills of those select few? To me, an outsider, it doesn't look like they're getting anything back from their investment. Likely someone subject to this type of democracy / tyranny will see it differently than me.

If you believe history should continue whether its redundant in today's concept of social fabric or not and these figureheads are benevolent to their citizenry, why not? Conversely, if these monarchies are maniacal dictators and a great detriment to the health and well-being of their citizenry then that population might want to take matters into their own hands and consider alternatives.

Fuck 'em, they don't do anything at all useful lately. I mean hell if there were at least actual ruling figures we could judge them on that merit But it's been a long time since a King or Queen was actually in charge of a World Power ya know.

A traditional monarchy with the king acting as the sovereign but limited head of state and chief executive is the most stable and good form of government, according to literally every political theoritician until barely 250 years ago.
