Especially since the Queen has very few actual powers and is largely a figurehead.
Today England is essentially a democracy.

You have your Royal Family.... we have our Kennedys, Clintons and Obamas.

Both go on lavish vacations, enjoy an opulent lifestyle, and have their own vassal Lords and Barons.

Not much difference really.
